Are you enjoying the puppy life?
I am! I went through it last year with our Labrador so I feel a lot more at ease with it all. With our Lab I was like a stressed out mum with her first kid
Some things are easier, some things are harder. Our Lab housetrained himself I kid you not, from 8 weeks old. However he was REALLY full on and took a lot of work, otherwise he would turn destructive to entertain himself. With Koji I have to keep eagle eyes on him re: toilet, but he has trained himself to use his puppy pad pretty reliably. Trouble is that is only the case upstairs where he spends most of his time with me (I work from home). When he's downstairs I have him go outside but he hasn't quite grasped asking yet, plus he doesn't particularly like the cold and wet (England here) so I don't think he's all that motivated
I also think the puppy pad is confusing him because the times he's had accidents downstairs have been on the little rugs in the kitchen, which he probably confuses with a puppy pad. I should probably put one downstairs so he can use that if I don't get him outside in time. I'm just a bit worried about confusing him because ultimately I would prefer if he went outside.
