House Training a Pomeranian?

My mom acquired a Pom. I am not sure of her age, I think she is under one. The lady that had her worked all the time and the dog stayed in a crate. We have trained many dogs. Never has she had a Pom. This dog seems untrainable! They were here over Christmas. She was taken out more than enough times and she still pooped on my floor twice. She can be gone for 2 seconds and does it. So what action do you take when they mess up? She just picked it up and flushed it. No disciplinary action.

That is good that you did not discipline her. It will be harder to train her since she is used to her old ways. Keep her on a strict feeding/walking schedule. Praise her lavishly when she goes outside and ignore when she messes in the house. You may need a professional dog trainer if your efforts do not work.

You mentioned that the dog did not receive any disciplinary training for accidents in the house. I sounded to me like that is exactly what your Mom was doing. Standard discipline requires ignoring accidents in the house while praising getting things right when going outside. Discipline means training, not punishment. It does sound like this dog may need longer to figure things out.

How is the pup? Check with the vet to make sure there are no health issues and then get your vets directions to crate train. Every pup is different.


Never discipline. Pups respond to positive stimuli. Reward every time the pup does it right. Ignore when not the behavior you want. Crate training works if you are consistent. Prayers for all!! Post back how it is going!!!
