Hello!

Learning the elimination habits take some time until the dog learns where to do his needs. In addition, it is not recommended to control bowel and bladder movements until the dog is several months old.

In such young puppies it is common to urinate or defecate in different places, but there are some protocols to teach them to do their needs in a specific place and later to do it in the street. The best thing to do is to contact an ethologist (behavior specialist) to indicate you the guidelines to follow.

Meanwhile, it is important to thoroughly clean the places where your puppy defecates, using enzymatic detergents or specific products (you should avoid using bleach or ammonia-based products).

On the other hand, you should also reward her every time she urinates / defecates in the specific spot made for it and on the street. If you caught her defecating where she shouldn't, without saying anything take her in your arms and take her to the specific spot to defecate there and then reward her. If she had already defecated in other place, you shouldn't punish her afterwards since punishment at the wrong time is counterproductive and has no use.

For more details on which guidelines to follow for the puppy to learn where to pee / poo, contact an ethologist who can help you in a personalized way.

All the best for you and Fluffy.
