Twinkie always has puppy pads available when she is in the living room playing, but sometimes it seems like she just doesn't feel like using them, and goes on the carpet anyway.When she DOES go on the pads, we praise her etc and lately have been giving her treats. I don't understand though why she went from using them, to now she only does sometimes. She always poops on them, but pee it's maybe 60% of the time.

Little rascal was soo good at potty training when we first got him home he was crate trained and there was a pad in the living room also which he always used and was barely any accidents. But not it's becoming a nightmare he's gotten so much worse and has decided he will just pee/poo wherever and whenever he likes usually without warning. I never scold him tho as I feel it's my fault and I'm clearly doing something wrong. I take him outside alot and he usually always goes to the toilet happily outside but then go again inside the house shortly after. He goes to the toilet very very frequently and as I said he usually goes without warning so there's no catching him to run outside before he goes. I really need some help with what to do

You need to go back to basics. He should never be somewhere that you cannot see him. I would personally tether him to my side so no matter where I go he goes so I can watch him. If you go somewhere that he cannot go he needs to go in his crate. I would also just take him out every 2 to 3 hours so that he gets in the routine that is where to potty. If you have not done so I would get a good enzymatic cleaner, I use Natures Miracle and clean every spot that he has went on. Just regular cleaners do not work they can still smell and will return to that spot. If you catch him in the act of going make a loud noise, I usually just used the word No, and pick him up and take him outside.

I take him out more regularly than 2 hours as he pee's so much but he could pee outside and as soon as I bring him in he pee's again. He's got a mat in the living room but he refuses to use it and pee's without warning I'm constantly cleaning up after him and it's becoming frustrating as I know it's somehow my fault. I usually always have him
Where I can see him but sometimes my mum has him and finds it
More difficult to constantly watch him all the time. But as u said I need to just go back to basics and try all over again.

Default How to Potty Train Successfully

He is still very young. Jaxx didn't quit having accidents until he was six months. I personally would get rid of the mat inside because it could be confusing him. I would probably walk him a little longer on his walks to make sure he has done all of his business outside. If Jaxx was going that much I would probably take him to the vet just to make sure it wasn't a medical issue.
It will click it just takes time, patience, and a lot of routine, routine, routine.
Any time you take him out of his crate he should be taken directly outside. Same thing after meals, playtime, and naps.
The first six months with Jaxx it seemed like I was taking him out to potty more than anything else but in the long run training now is worth it later.
Good luck

I kinda thought it was common for them to go alot? It's worse I think because we have a staffy in the house, not sure if rascal is trying to mark things? But maybe I should take him to the vet as he pee's ALOT! Could have him outside and doo his "business" then pee again on the living room withing 5 mintues and he's constantly having little "dribbles"? I don't know of maybe he is drinking too much as we just leave him with a constant supply of of water? Should I maybe cut him back on fluids? Today I have had the poor soul out most of the day trying not to let him do the toilet at all in the house.
