Default Potty training

Hey guys I know I've asked for help in this area but here I am needing advice again. Frankie is now 15 wks and was doing pretty well with the training. He holds it all night and goes straight outside when we tell him and he'll use the doggy door and wont have accidents one day then the next day he'll pee and poop inside like he forgot even doing it in front of us. We tell him bad boy outside and he goes straight outside. He'a such a good boy and would be perfect if he'd just stop having accidents. Am I just being impatient? How old were your babies when the were fully trained? Somedays I feel like I'm outside with him forever and he's gone a few times and surely he's done just to go back in for him to go again. Is this normal? Love my baby. Hate the mess lol. And advice would be greatly appreciated.

Sally probably had her last accident (other than excited wees) when she was just about 4 1/2 months, but these were probably my fault, most of the were.

the biggest issue I had, was Sally would wee the instant she had finished eating, no pause to find somewhere, or that we would be playing and she would walk over to a toy and wee there when I though she was just going to pick up a toy...

I was tempted to just feed her outside, but instead took her out to wee before she had finished, she learnt quickly that she needed to go there or have her meal interupted every time! and the playing I had to learn to watch closer, but as she got bigger her bladder control got better! I am still waiting for the excited wees to finish... people tell me that she will grow out of that too!~

We had to go through potty training for a long time too. It got very annoying. There were a few accidents just here and there, for a year. But finally it will all come to an end.

I found getting stressed over it made it worse.

We visited my parents when she was 3 months and My dad (who isn't a dog or animal person) went crazy when she weed in the house, not at her but at me, and the weeing got worse, as soon as we started "ignoring" the accidents (just encouraging the correct wee location), she got better.

I would just put her outside, tell her to wee, go back inside clean up and then I didn't let her in again until she weed out there! she always managed another little trickle out there!

I'm wondering if the doggy door is confusing to him. Maybe I need to close it until he's got it down. Just worried what the other dog would do.

Can't help you there I only got a doggy door recently. But once i started leaving the door open (cause it got warm enough) she stopped having the occasional accidents, it could be because it was about the age and she was big enough to hold better or because she could just run outside, not having to wait for me to get there!

We got Duke when he was 16 weeks old and he had accidents up until about 5 months old. It would be 1-2 times per week and I think it was mostly our fault for not picking up on his cues.

So yes, keep up the training and be patient. This too shall pass

Be patient. It comes with time & all of them are different. I'm going to knock on wood as I say this <knocking>....Murphy hasn't had an accident in almost 2.5 weeks. She just turned 5 months on the 2nd. She's getting better at whining at us when she needs to go outside. I still watch for clues that she's needing to go.
