Hi, my 11 week old pups behaviour has got worse since having her, she was great at peeing on her mat and pooping but the last few days she hasn't been doing well at all. Also she's becoming more wild. could anyone advise what I could do?

Hi jade!

I know a lot of people recommend crate training, at least in puppyhood and early life for dogs. Is that something that you have considered?

It is a very common problem with puppies. They don't listen and poop and pee wherever they want. You should keep a patience and keep training your puppy with your words and gestures. Sooner or later it is going to understand what you want to convey.

Have you thought about keeping a pad that they have used only slightly so that they recognize the scent and think "Hey, this is where I'm supposed to do my business." 

If that doesn't work, how about keeping a close eye on their timing and be ready to get them over to the pad. I know this takes time, but it's worth it. I did it with my poodle puppy and she learned, although it took her longer than I would have wished. After she learned, she never made a mistake.

It's common for young puppies to pee a lot.I agree with glf, you could try keeping a pad and watch her timings.

I just have a question, do you bond with your dog? 

Try to keep an eye on your pet in order to correct his behavior.

Hi! I also have dogs, and they are the mot adorable creatures in the world for me. It is not easy to train them. It takes effort and patience as well. Getting a wee pad is very helpful.
