A Community of Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Lovers

We have a 10 week old Goldendoodle, Maddie. She continues to 'mess' in her kennel, she has just enough room to lay down so I don't think it's the size. Any advise? She also continues to have accidents in the house, even though she may have been outside a few minutes earlier. Any advise?

A week or two ago I mentioned the "Monk's of New Skete Book" they have the greatest crate training & housebreaking schedule that I have found in all these years. It is a German Sheperd book. Sheperds are harder to housbreak then doodles as I used to raise and show many, many years ago. Get from Library.

Are you crate training? I just got my fourth have had her a week and this morning she had her first accident and it was totally my fault. I started cleaning and was not totally dedicated to watching Fergie. A puppy this age has no bladder control and if crated they still have to be taken out every couple hours or so. Do you leave water down? Just give her as much water as she wants after each of her three feedings a day. When not paying attention to them put into a crate. Puppies can chew an electric cord. When I was a child we had a toy terrier who did this went into convultions and lasted three days at the vets. That was over 50 years ago, but things can happen. Our trouble is we get doing other things that seem more inportant when housebreaking the first several weeks should be top priority. And I am as guilty as the next one. Good Luck!

Although we never had problems with Harry going in his crate, the frequent accidents shortly after being taken outside sound all to familiar ! I believe this frequency is one of those things that will happen until Maddie gains some bladder control, which comes as she gets a few weeks older! Just keep taking her out often , at least once every one to two hours ! And reward her when she does potty outside! We also limited Harry's food and drink , no food after 7 pm and no water after 9 pm! Once he got better with the training we of course lifted this ! It can be frustrating esp when they are that young! Just keep at it and be consistent and you will find that one day it will pretty much stop!
Good luck and let us know how it goes!
