  2. This is exactly what I'm dealing with as well. My beagle is potty trained and rings the bell to go potty outside but he ALWAYS pees in his beds. I have to crate him with no bedding or even soft toys or he'll pee. I can't find any real advice anywhere and it's frustrating because I feel sorry that he has to sleep in a bare crate.

    Age when potty trained

    Yogi was right around a year old before I felt he was fully trustworthy.

    Age when potty trained

    Piper was 10 months old. Bella was a little over a year old. It takes time for some. Forgot to add that my 13 week old Briley does great on pee pads.
  6. How old was your shihtzu when he/she was completely potty trained?
  7. 👋 Hello! We got a white shihtzu for Christmas. It is our first dog. She is absolutely adorable. I would love any tips for potty training, crate training, or anything else you would me to know. We used potty pads at first but got rid of it and take her outside (turf on deck, not grass yet) to potty. I think she was confusing rugs for the potty pads sometimes. She still has accidents but I hear that will be the case for a while. We put potty bells on the sliding door. She knows how to ring it to go out but doesn’t always pee or poop. Thank you!

    I don't have embedding set up as no one was using it. Not sure if there's a IG set up.. We do use a wysiwyg editor no preview I believe, but editing is available so you can edit if needed. I need to go back into the admin panel on my computer vs phone as it seems some things have changed since the last major update a few weeks ago, I actually had support play with the board as there were some major issues not allowing the upgrade...

    How do you embed a tweet or an IG post? Usually I chose embed on the Tweet and post but I'm not sure that it's working here. Also, is there a preview button that you can view before posting? Thanks

    Omg, what a little man! Breaks my heart to see what people do to some of these little ones. Bless those who can see beyond taking a chance to rehabilitate them! So happy he was adopted and living the life he should have had all along!
  14. I have an almost 8 yr old shi tzu. I take him out in the morning before I go to work (5:30-6:30 am) and my roomate who works from home kindly takes him out around 1ish and then I take him out again when I get home from work around 7pm. Is this ok? Because I go to bed early. He has access to water all day.

    Thank you again. Believe it or not, we decided to try a crate (which is much bigger) during the day. Put blanket over it and put it next to our work/school from home. He cried for 2 mins first time and then took the longest nap so far. Few other times we put him there - not a peep. Going to take the crate into our bedroom and see what happens

    Oh Freddie, you are gorgeous. I use a puppy pen for my dogs as I work 3 days a week. I did before (Covid -19) so One of my dogs has the kitchen and the other two have a puppy pen each. Long story as to why they are not all together ( I’ll save that for another day) I give them the puppy pen in the day so they have a bit more room while I’m at work should they need to go to the toilet. Now I don’t sleep with my dogs. Something hubby has never agreed to. So mine all stay downstairs in their pens or the kitchen as mentioned above. I did use puppy pads for toilet train

    He’s precious and just looks like a Freddie too! I had more luck with a small crate. I also had a doggie type playpen. The crate worked much better for me. And I totally agree to move the crate close enough to you that you can speak soft soothing words! Unless he’s crying because it has been long enough he has to pee pee. But then again, I trained both of mine to potty outside. So my advice might be different from those who have trained with pee pads.

    Hi and thank you very much. I think tonight we are going to try just that. I have one more question for you. When I brought him home I got a carrier which is more than twice the size he is and that is what I left in a playpen for him to sleep in. The crate is much bigger and open. If I take him to our room, should I use the small carrier where he doesn't have much room or do the bigger crate and cover it up as you suggested. And here's the picture of our Freddie.

    i echo what Marlene has said. By the way welcome to you. We all love to see photos of each other’s babies, so please do share. Can’t wait to here all what your pup gets up too and I’m sure that will be a lot. Congratulations on your pup.

    Put him to bed when the rest of his pack goes to bed goes to bed. Hints on a crying puppy. Of course he's crying.........where's my Mama and siblings? I have fostered a lot of puppies. I put the crate next to my side of the bed, cover it to make a dark quiet cave where movements and sounds in the room won't immediately wake them and get their attention. If/when they cry I touch the crate rhythmically and softly chant something. But keep in mind, he might need to go out and potty......he's a beebee Your turn.....we MUST have pictures or we get surly And last but
  22. Hi all, new member here with basic questions. Our family finally got our dream come true - beautiful baby boy Shih Tzu pup. Just turned 2 months yesterday. Got him 4 days ago and so far everything is going great. He's a super smart boy. As many new owners my big concern is sleep at night. Please, don't crucify me if I do something wrong as we are all learning. I have a nice setup confirmed by few people. Good playpen area with his crate/carrier that's always open. Got my daughter's t-shit (he attached to her from day one), wee wee pad and water for the night and his favorite
  23. Hello, it’s been about a month since we started NILIF. So far I have gotten Jasper to stay off the couch. I used to sit with both him and Leo for their meals. Now I hand feed Jasper both breakfast and dinner. It’s not only good for me to get closer to him letting him know, I’m the one with his food and I control it. I know how much Jasper is eating every meal. I’ve never had a problem with him and eating . I always sat with them like I said earlier. This way they don’t squabble over food. So It’s not a problem for me to feed jasper by hand. He’s almost off my bed. Last night he was on the flo

    NILIF and husband

    In an ideal world your husband would participate fully in NILIF. But in the real world . . . the core of what you're working on is Jasper's relationship with YOU. Dogs are very relational. Yogi acts differently for me than he does with my husband. He acts differently with each of our sons. That's normal. Keep working on his relationship with you.
  25. Jasper, Is on NILIF. He has been on for no more than 3 weeks. I still go back to the link to refresh my memory. I was slacking on ignoring him. He brings his toys to me, stares, barks and talks to get attention. I have ignored it as much as my heart will allow. I had my husband go over the rules again also. I have decided to ignore him more than I have been. Jasper comes over to me and does all his little tricks and still jumps up on the couch still sometimes. I am ignoring his behavior and trying not to make eye contact as much as possible. I am noticing more and more that,
