when our pups have an accident in the house- it is our fault for not taking them out. Clearly they can't talk (that would make things SO much easier ) so it is up to us to recognize their cues that they need to go out. If you scold her, she is just going to start having accidents where you can't find it and thus can't get mad at her. She can't put two and two together that you are getting mad because she pooped.

When Layla would have an accident, if i cuaght her mid accident i would call her name to try and get her to stop, pick her up, take her outside and praise her whether or not she did anything.

If i saw the accident after it happened- i just cleaned it up and tried to watch her better.

how old is she?

When she does pee or poop outside- does she get TONS of praise and a treat? She has to have incentive to pee/poop outside.

Is little Bella the pup? Well first off she's still very young and our breed of choice is very hard to train...my Bryan still sometimes goes to close to the edge of the wee wee pad sometimes and he's almost 2yrs old...there are times if I'm not paying him any attention he will not even get on the wee wee pad anf I yell BRYAN!! And he will drpo his head and start to trout away because he knows he potty on the floor but when he goes on the pad I give him plenty of praise and you can see he very proud of himself but he's still a work in progress!

The dog trainer we had for Buster told us take him out on a leash when we took him out to potty and take him to the same place. Pick a word you want to use when you want them to potty (I tell them pee-pee or potty). You might have to stay out there for 20 minutes or so. I know that seems like a long time, but it's so worth it. If you take them on a leash and stay with them, they aren't chasing bugs or playing. After they potty you can take the leash off and let them play or bring them back in. It seemed to work for Buster, he was pretty easy to potty train. He got a lot of praise and lot of treats when he pottied outside. By the time we got Maggie we had a dog door, but you still have to teach them to use the door to go out if that is where you want them to go. We still have accidents, found a "surprise" on the rug when I got home today. If I find it after the fact, I just clean it up, I don't say anything. If I catch them while it's happening, I say their name and try to get them out to the spot where they are to potty. At this point, it doesn't matter where they potty outside, just so it's outside . I still take them out in the morning when we first get up. I want to make sure they go outside and not stop on the way out!

You really do have to go outside with her to watch and make sure you SEE her peeing/pooping. When she goes, PRAISE and treat! She has NO idea that she's doing something good/bad when she potties. If you're outside with her for 10 minutes and still no potty... bring her inside and put her in a crate where she can't pee. I got Jackson as a young pup in December and it was freezing... so if he decided not to pee, he'd go inside and right back in his crate so I know he wouldn't go on the floor. He'd usually whine 10 minutes later... so we try it again and he'd go. Then he got his play-time outside of the crate. Eventually, he associated going potty outside with coming inside for playtime. It's a lot of hard work when they're puppies but it gets better! It's a matter of being diligent, having lots of patience and getting them on a schedule. That first month, I tried to not even ALLOW an accident... I did this by watching him like a hawk when he was not crated or in his ex-pen. When I couldn't keep my total attention on him... in the crate or pen he went. Don't give freedom because they will put their smells all over your house and never stop going.

I am so happy for the advice on this thread. I am having soooo much trouble with the potty thing and I know it is ME not doing things right.

Let's face it "potty", just has to be done! The puppy doesn't really have a handle on why here is bad, and there is good, unless there is a party, for doing it ...there!
Patience... and no reaction , if you don't see it happen... just clean up, WELL!
With puppies I leash, and hold the leash HIGH... so all they can do in circle in one place (almost) and use the "potty" command! You will be soooo happy when your baby potties on command, when you are in a hurry, or in the rain!

Looking at her lady bits is a bit after the fact. If you praise her then way after she's gone pee pee then she won't associate the praise for the act. Instead of thinking "YAY! I did a good job" she's actually thinking "Wow, mom's in a good mood."
I think for her to really get it you need to catch her in the act. When I was trying to curb Kaji's marking I had to catch him in the act or else he wouldn't get it. When I saw him lift his leg inside I would double clap and say a firm "NO" as a way to interrupt what he was doing. The no cannot be said in a freaked out mad tone. It just needs to be firm. Like marcerella02 said, if you yell in anger, all that will produce is a scared pup that will hide her accidents better, with no positive results for you. As soon as I interrupt with the no I'd quickly pick him up and literally run outside and put him on the grass. As soon as I saw him squat or lift his leg outside he'd get tons of praise. That way he'd associate inside no pee, even if it's marking, and outside yes to peeing and marking.
You're situation is a little different but it doesn't change the fact watching them like a hawk and setting them up to win is the best way to teach them. Take your baby out as many times as possible for you to take her. Stay out there 20 mins if that's what it takes but watch her the entire time. If you see her squat for a pee, PRAISE PRAISE PRAISE!!! and even give her a little treat. That way she will definitely associate her going pee outside makes mom very very happy. When she's inside you still have to watch her. If you can't watch her every minute, do as other's suggested and put her in her crate of x-pen so she's safe, she's in her space which she is going to try to keep clean. She's in the learning phase still at only 3 months old, but eventually she'll get it just be consistent and trust me you'll get her there!!

This is good advice. The only tweak I would suggest is don't use their name when you are correcting any behavior. I was told this associates their name to scolding instead of it being their name. That's why I use no or "oh oh" or something like that. That way they know the behavior is wrong and they won't think name= I did bad.

I've seen this in Kaji which is why I had the guts to type it! If I'm in a good mood and giving him tons of lovin he just sits there and enjoys. But when he thinks he's accomplished something to please mommy he actually celebrates. Maybe I should get this on video so you could see what I mean????
