Hi Brogan and welcome to the Forum.  The only suggestion I have is buy lots of paper towels lol.  I have a 9 wk old and that's what we do when she misses.  I think I've used a roll of Bounty in two days lol.

Hi and welcome!! Brogan is such a little sweetie and I love that name!

My only suggestion would be take him out every chance you get!! We have a 9 week old pup and after everything we go outside to potty..after eating, playing, sleeping etc. Also when she goes outside we praise, praise, praise. Good luck with it and I'm sure he'll catch on, sooner or later  :)

Hi and welcome to the forums!  :D
At 6 1/2 weeks your puppy has no bladder control so you just need to take him out a lot!! Like everyone before me said, invest in some Bounty!!  :p

Welcome!
He is so adorable with his cute boxer puppy head!
Im surprised hes so vocal bc I read somewhere Boxers are generally quiet (and Zuri only barks at her playmate Mo)
I have my baby pretty much crate trained and the same thing happened to me with the whole carpeting thing.
Zuri was a bit older than he is when I rescued her, but I think crate training and confinment to a puppy proof area with paper and no carpet is your best bet and taking him out frequently as they said!
Congrats and good luck with your handsome lil guy!

Welcome! The best thing is taking him out all the time.  We never trained with paper, just always made sure they were taken out all the time.  They still had some accidents but get better the older they are.

Welcome and cute pup.    Believe it or not......mine was right at 7 weeks when I got her and she never had an indoor accident.   She never was caged and ran loose in a nice home.   It took a tremendous amount of work on my part (which I gladly did) but I would take her outside every 30 minutes and right after she took a drink also.   This built a foundation where she new where she had to go.   By 3 months old she would go and sit at the front door to let me know it was time.   If I didn't see her by the door,  she would come find me and sit in front of me staring the whole time.  

I wouldn't let her have any water right before bed time and made her go outside right before bed.   For about a month I set the alarm for 3 in the morning to take her out for a potty break.   After that she made it thru the night.    She sleeps at the foot of the bed and doesn't move until I wake up in the morning, then I take her out immediately.  

It has been a lot of work but well worth it.   They are like little kids and must be treated as such.   Show them the right way and they will reward you with good behavior.  

note:   I have always heard that boy pups are harder to potty train.   I have no experience with the males but know that they too can be trained the same way.  

Great looking pup you have.

I took Diesel out every half hour, but he still had accidents.
But like they say, when they have an accident in the house, you just get a newspaper, roll it up, and hit yourself over the head for not getting them out in time. lol I love that.

Welcome to you and Brogan the pee machine! LOL! Don't worry, as he grows his bladder control will get better and better. For now though, you may have to opt for the hitting yourself over the head with the newspaper thing! LOL!

Howdy from Texas and welcome!

I've never raised a pup that young, so I'm not sure what to tell you.  Take him out a lot!  Tell him to go potty.  When he goes potty, act like it's the best thing in the world, PRAISE, PRAISE, PRAISE!  Boxers are really smart, so he'll catch on in no time.

We also  have a jingle bell on a string on the door where he goes out to potty.  When he needs/wants to go out, he rings the bell.

Good luck! :D

Another thing is to get some Natures Miracle to clean up the messes, it takes away the smell so they don't go there again.

Hi & Welcome.
Love his name & he is such a sweetie pie!!
I second the Natures Miracle solution.  Be patient he'll catch on to the potty system.
