Re:


Piper, you can do all those things all by yourself now? Wow, you sure love your new home don't you?

Btw, what's that about "pee playpen"? Was that just an accident? emoticon

Re: Hi! I am Piper


A Dachshund puppy pees every hour until about 12 weeks of age and then they switch to every 2 hours. Piper has never peed on the carpet. She has only peed in the litter box or on the Plexiglas floor of her playpen. She is starting to pee on command in the litterbox, unless I missed that she just peed in the playpen. I reinforce her success in the litter box with a piece of cat food. She is actually almost too young yet to successfully potty train her. It took 9 months with Isabel using only positive reinforcement. I am sure that had I disciplined her it would have been longer. They are vindictive little buggers. Isabel only had one accident off of the Plexiglas or litterbox.

I love the Dachshund personality.

----------------------------------------------------------


quote:

The Do's and Don'ts of Dachshund potty training

The To Do list.

A Dachshund puppy needs to go potty at regular and frequent intervals so make sure you take him to where he should pee:

As soon as they wake up in the morning

After naps

When they take a break from playing with their toys

After all meals

Before and after being put in their crate

Before you go to bed at night

Most importantly what not to do:

Do not hit your puppy

Do not shout at your puppy - IF you catch him in the act a sharp "NO" is good

Do not rub his nose in it

Negative reinforcement will make your Dachshund puppy scared and start hiding to pee and he will associate punishment with you returning to the house.



You see Dachshunds by nature are stubborn and can be tenacious so housebreaking a new puppy or even an older dog can be very frustrating.

quote:

The important thing to remember when housetraining a Dachshund is to ignore the pottying inside and reward and praise the pottying outside and you must be consistent with this or they will never become housebroken. You only need to remember two things when training a Dachshund to do anything CONSISTANCY & REWARD!

Re: Hi! I am Piper


So emoticon followed me around with my Q-tip and Tabasco sauce as we coated the feet of furniture and she growled at the Q-tip. emoticon

She has plenty other things to chew on.

I think that Piper feels the chill in the air and is enjoying the warm sunny places to lie down in.
