House Training a Puppy?

How can I stop my puppy from pooing or weeing on the floor or his bed? He is on pads and newspaper, but he does not go on it. We just got him today and he weed once on the pads. He is only 12 weeks old and he is a Cockerpoo.

Consider life from his perspective-he was taken from an environment he knew well in his initial 12 weeks of life, to a completely new environment! He does not know the layout, new rules, new people and, possibly, other animals in his new home.

Please give him time to settle in, make many mistakes, learn new behaviors, his new environment, etc. It will take weeks, if not months, to learn all the new survival tactics he must achieve to thrive in your new requirement.

How well did you perform to expectations at the comparable human age of 3-4 years old?

I agree with the first poster's comments. No puppy is going to learn that fast where to go for potty time. That being repeated, let's focus on how to train the new puppy. Begin by leaving the pee pad in the same location all the time and when you first notice puppy getting ready to squat, lift it gently to the wee pad. If you take the pup outside for potty time, take it to the same location every time. It will smell the spot; recognize it and eventually will know what to do.

It's going to take time; be patient and never swat it in the face with newspaper because it didn't go where you wanted it to as that's improper training technique or scream/holler at it either. Dogs love to please their master and eventually with time/patience you will successfully have trained your pet to use the designated area. If you have another dog, you could take the pup to the same spot where the dog uses potty and it will go there more readily and eventually you won't have to wait very long for it to get down to business.

What did you do when he weed on the pee pee pad? Did you say, "Good boy!" And tickle him and play with his ears and roll him, etc?

Because puppies respond to praise. When he sees you are excited about this behavior you'll get more of it. Good luck.
