Potty Training a 4 month old - Houston
We have a 4 month old little boy and having trouble potty training him. Is there any recommended places here in Houston to take him for this?

Our pup is about 4 mod. old. We decided to tether her so we could keep the closest eye on her when she was outside her play pen. It's working really well and we have been accident free for a couple weeks now but I don't trust her just yet. I know it's us who are potty trained right now because we know her schedule. As long as we stick to it, there are no problems. Tethering means she's got her harness on attached to a standard length leash and tied to my belt loop. She goes wherever I go and she's learning to walk on the leash at the same time. Working well for us.

4 months is still young, give him time. Most petsmarts and petco's offer pet training classes if you want to take him. The petsmart actually had a free 'housetraining' class I took mine to.

Petsmart or maybe check online for small dog trainers if you go that route. Have you tried any of the books that are available for training your pup yourself?
Hannah is almost 4 mos. old as well and she is 20/80 between accidents and potty pads. Keeping her confined when I'm unable to watch her every move is helping. She's soo young so my expectations are not as high..I thought she was doing pretty well at 20/80. If Petsmart works out for anyone here in Houston please let me know... I'm thinking they teach the owner how to train instead of training the dog but I'm not sure???
