Question by Jewel: HELP with training a 5-mo old Boxer puppy “Bella Noches” PLEASE? [Details inside…]?
ANY EXPERIENCED ADVICE 4 MY PUPPY “Bella Noches”?
I want to train my puppy to guard the house, and protect me.
I want my puppy to STOP pottying inside. I have taken her out religiously, but she refuses to gooutside. Then when I bring her in she SQUATS to wee wee, or HOVERS to pooh within a few minute.
She is HUGE! She weighs about 30 lb.s already, so it is difficult to train her some things.
She sits, is learning to stay, get down off something or someone, and to come on command. Other than this I find a road block to her learning. She is part Lab and mostly Boxer. She looks nothing like a Lab, mostly like a Boxer. However I KNOW what her breeds are because I owned the sire & dam, but everyone is VERY AFRAID of her because they think she is a Pit Bull!

If your dog comes into the house to relieve its self after you have taken it out, you did not wait long enough. My boxer girl just turned 7 months and she has been totally house broken for at least 5 months. Reward, reward, reward. Praise her for going outside, praise her when she eliminates. Try to stick to a schedule of food and water. Generally about 15 minutes after they eat is a good time to take them out. Try a web search of puppy training, I had joined a site that sent a newsletter every day or so with new tips tricks and tried and true methods. I am sorry I forget the site, but this woman was from Canada and her name was Nathalie if that helps. Be patient and don’t let your frustration show to the dog. Good luck to you.
