Welcome to puppyhood!
First of all , thank you for your concern.A four month old puppy can only hold it's urine for 4 hrs if you're lucky. A rough gauge is 1 hr for every month old that they are. And they are just like babies. May I ask what your expectations are for this dog? And letting her pee in her crate is just asking for more trouble. She is not going to be able not pee where she sleeps if you don't let her out. Maybe an older pet would have been better for you. If you are not controlling input (food), you are not going to be able to controll output. Try not feeding her after 5:00 in the afternoon.
Seems like there is already some damage......should I buy earplugs and let the dog swim in her box with pee and poo or get my nerv system damaged over time?..
You slept with your puppy on the same bed?Sammy was ten weeks old when we brought him home. He's been sleeping with me from day one and we never had that problem, he always slept through the night. But if he had to go he would wake me up.
Did you think about these things before you got your puppy?? I sure wouldn't want my pup swimming in pee or poo.
Why would I give my puppy back? Just because of that? Wow .... I said I am getting mad about waking up not that I am getting mad about the puppy which is 4 months in life and doesnt know how to act... if it was the puppy alone to control itself I wouldnt ask for assistance in here, it is me who has to control and take care of everything....Puppy is a baby dog, if you have this much trouble handling a baby dog you better not have kids human kids that is.A puppy takes about 3-8 months to completely house break depends on how consistent the human is house breaking the puppy.To make sure you are aware sometimes puppies do get UTI's ( Urinary tract infections) can make them pee more it can have blood in it I'm sure it hurts to pee just like in people. I hope you do not take your feelings out on your puppy Doberman s are very sensitive to their people.If you feel so violent towards you pup maybe you should return her to the breeder and get a older dog that is already house trained. Good Luck to you.
Agree. She did her pee only the her first night in the crate after that either outside of the house or in a balkony if not possible to go downstairs. I don't have any problems going out with my dobie , I actually like it. During the day I can handle anything if I get a proper sleep. Also my breeder told me I have to let my puppy inside the crate all the time cause her bones are soft so lot of excercise and games can cause displasia and because she is young she must sleep a lot, puppies grow up while sleeping. So every walk is 10 - 15 min maximum we can play for 10 min after the walk at home and then back to the crate.Gunner is 16 weeks. I got him at 13 weeks and he's never once woken me up at night. BUT, I also play hard with him right before bed and wear him out. I also feed him early in the evening so he has his last poop right before bed. Remember your pup is young, and needs a schedule to help get things under control. I definitely would NOT allow her to just pee in the crate. Likely, that will only make you more mad because then you will have a nasty stinky mess to clean up...not to mention it will only slow down housetraining. Although Gunner is great, I've had pups in the past who literally had to go out every 2 hours. It's exhausting yes, but I've also had two human babies so I was used to it. Hang in there...soon she'll grow up a bit and can hold it more.
