So my sweet little puggie is only 10 weeks old today and I can't seem to get him to go to the bathroom outside.
Does anybody have any tips on how I can coax him into doing this? Poor little guy shivers when outside, even with a coat on.
He is a cutie. Try going out every hour and walk him around til he goes, gotta keep moving or they will just wait to see what you are gonna do.
This will help with the shivers also. Good luck.
If he's wee wee paper trained..you can put a wee wee pad outside...one that he's used in the house!
Treat and praise as soon as he goes..and get him inside!!!!!
Don't expect the idea to click for a while......you need to watch. My guys are 4 months old....do potty outside..but still will go in the house, so I have wee wee pads around the house for them to go on! Was getting ready to pick most up, but one of the littermates just came back here from the co owner and has no idea of outside yet!

Good advice already given so I'll just add that he's a super cutie!! Those first 2 pics are definitely "my toes are cold and you want me to do WHAT??"

Thanks everybody. I'll just keep at it. Thanks for all the good advice. Now if only I could figure out how to get him to stop biting me while he's teething... lol

Thanks for that. I've read this already. Yelping just excites him more. If I leave the room he just follows me, biting at my feet instead of my hands and arms. He's only 10 weeks old so I want to try and break the cycle early, but I'm finding it difficult. He's so darn hyper! Everything is a chew toy for him… especially my husband and I. More so myself than him. lol.
Ah, the puppy pirhana phase...
We would tell Lucy "no bite", and trade her for a toy. It took a while, but she eventually figured it out. When she was being overly nippy, we put her in her playpen with a toy for a "time out". Most of the time, she would throw a small tantrum (like a human toddler), then settle down and take a nap.

Training (or retraining took me forever). Chico will not pee if I'm watching, if it's raining or snowing. He tricks me many times a day because he knows he gets a treat when he comes in. He never pees and poops during one outside time.....it took a forever to finally train him. He still has accidents but rarely. I have no advice but just to have patience. Good luck and he is a gorgeous pug!
