House-training puppies, questionable advice
We've had mixed success with getting the puppies house-trained. They go outside sometimes but still go freely in the house. When we take them out they are playing for thirty, fourty-five, sixty minutes then we bring them in and they go inside. I know we've failed to set up a strict routine so I don't get mad at them but we are going to puppy-classes next week so I hope we'll learn an approach both my Mom and I will be consistent with.
So my brother has given us advice on how to house-train our puppies... take them outside and keep saying 'Go pee! Go pee! Go pee! Good boy/girl! Good pee!'. And if they make a mistake in the house?... Grab them by the scuff of the neck and shake them the way their mother would if they misbehaved (actually do the mother's do that or do they just pin the puppy down by the neck?). He says they don't have accidents with Punkin's brother but my sister-in-law has mentioned some incidents so he may be stretching the truth a little.
