Why do you want to puppy pad train him? We tried to puppy pad train Bella when we were just leaving her free in the kitchen while we were away. Puppy pads just teach dogs that it's okay to go potty in the house, and that's a hard habit to break!
Ya I dont want to let him know its ok to pee or potty in the house but I eventually would like to just put up a baby gate which I already have at top os stairs and let him roam around the top floor so he's not confined to a bathroom.. I mean he has plenty of room in bathroom just a thought.. I am in process of caret training him but since this is my first time doing so i feel like im not doing it right...
Right now I take him out every 15 minutes just to get him in habit of going out back and why we are doing so.. Once he's done eating I take him out and first thing when he wakes up...
He's only in his crate at night when were sleeping or when were watching a movie or having him take a nap..etc
So any recommendations on what I can do to crate train him better? My main prob is Im away from home from 6am till 6pm everyday so i definitely CANNOT leave him locked up that long but I guess I can section off his crate just small enough to lay down and turn and leave the pads down in bathroom for him to go on??
Yes I know its alot fo work and hes young but I want to start right
Ya no doubt its the best but unfortunately theirs no one available..at least within driving distance like 5 or 10 minutes and with gas as much as it is I cant afford to pay someone elses gas bill to have a consistent baby sitter
Im gonna try keeping him in our room tonight in his crate and see how he does but I doubt he can hold it even if I take him out before bed which is usually round 11pm and I wake up round 5am
