House Training & Crate Training

Recommended Posts

Loved this thread,we have never had a puppy always older trained dogs,but we bought a rhodesian ridgeback Monday,he's 8 weeks however the mother died following 2 days labour and 10 pups,in just 4 days he no longer has bowel motion in side ,and mostly through the day he peed outside ,rooughly 2 accidents in the night .he sleeps in the kitchen alone well on his blanket.he was used to sharing a stable with 7 pups,and a horse next door so I guess he peed their ,really pleased with his progress tho considering no former training.how many weeks do you think it may be before he can hold urine long enough through the night .or should I use a crate now

I used the crate straight away with both my pups and just got up every few hours to let them out for about ten days, was quite tiring but after doing that they know not to go in the crate and they will be let out so they would last from about 11 at night till 5 in the morning which wasnt too bad. I did have a problem with my springer pup where she got so scared she would poo in the crate, i got over this by putting her crate in our bedroom for a couple of nights which some people wont agree with but it worked for us.

My springer pup started on skinners puppy and she is now on skinners complete salmon and rice and she has turned out great powerful little dog with a nice coat. Only thing i found with it is need about twice as much food as recommended on the bag, but my collie has the amount it says on the bag and is doing well on it.

I'm currently using the same crate and toilet training method as NTTF. Picked pup up yesterday, today pup takes herself out through the back door to pee and poo. I'm sure there will be accidents but being consistant pays off.

I used Arden Grange for years but have just changed to CSJ its a really good food and Cheep. comes well recommended really good for a working dog.
