So I know its only been 2 months of training but at 2 months in we have gotten him to understand to ask to go he does this every time AS LONG AS HE IS IN HIS PLAYPEN. Once he is out he never asks he just goes. He has learned the phrase do you have to go potty and he also knows when he is going outside. So I know we have to be patient and keep waiting while being diligent which we are I'm always home with him. I'm just wondering should we ditch the playpen and let him have accidents and start teaching him no and then bring him outside? We have refrained from reprimanding him and or really given him much opportunity outside the playpen to ask. I don't know if maybe that's our problem being to cautious? I read a lot of places forums videos say never ever teach your dog no and or be stern. Basically should we keep doing as we are doing or should be start letting him make mistakes and teach him that's not allowed to learn? I also understand all pups are different just looking for others general opinions and experiences.
