need to train 8 wk maltipoo puppy
She is 8 weeks old she isn't realy getting the fact to use the bathroom on the puppy pads, need help.
So i'm thinking just skipping that and focusing all the time on training her to use the bathroom outside.
NEED HELP any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!
At 8 weeks old, your puppy is a tiny baby and is only just beginning to have control over her bladder/bowels. She's also a small breed puppy, with a tiny bladder, so don't expect too much of her at first.
However, you are right to think that trying to train a puppy to use pee pee pads, and then moving on to doing her business outside is confusing. It's best to start off the way you mean to go on. Less trouble all around!
I would strongly suggest you get a crate and begin to crate train your puppy, encouraging her to eliminate outdoors from day one.
Check out my Crate Training and Potty Training pages for all the tips and advice you need.
Best of luck with your little girl.
