You obviously haven't tried every standard method of potty training this female. You haven't tried the leash method or crate training..these methods are FAIL PROOF if done correctly. You make claims of all this knowledge and don't understand the very basic of training methods.. You can crate train a dog at any age...crating is not just for potty training. It is a safety tool as well for while you are away (so your dog doesn't decide to tear apart the house or eat something it shouldn't) Dogs enjoy crates..they are den animals..a crate is thier safe zone. It isn't cruel and it sure doesn't mean someone is a terrible trainer if they use one. Crates can be used for raod trips, motels, shows...the list goes on and on..
Anyway..I don't know why I waste my breath. It seems you are already the "all knowing pitbull trainer" and nothing anyone says here will matter to you. Feel free to use the search button of this forum for training advice....potty training has been covered a dozen times...maybe you will find something new there.
Im not sure why i respond to you as you clealry havent anything polite of decent to offer anyone.
Actually maybe I understand it better than you?
Crate training is a full training method affecting every part of the dogs training and I dont WANT crate training. So, when looking for a new trick to help with ONE aspect of potty training ONE dog, why would I jump at the chance to take crate training now?
I considered crate training and decided againt it long before I took these pups. Why would I go back to it now to help with potty training a pup at 5 months?
Id rather be patient if thats what it takes and she will grow out of it in a couple of months without imposing such a drastic change of measures on both my dogs.
Forgive me for believing that to be a more reasonable approach....
Crate training is no better than standard methods. I have always done just fine without it and with Moto the male im doing just perfectly well also. They sleep in their own dog bed in our room, without needing to be crated up for the night. They have never chewed a shoe, or a piece of furniture or anything else. The occasional nibble on the skiriting is all. So why is it so unreasonable for someone not to choose crate training when its really not needed?
It would be overkill just to speed up housetraining in one stubborn female pup!
