Help me stop the little pisser!

Guys, my roommate has a 13 week old puppy. Yesterday she (my roommate) went to an inpatient mental clinic for AT LEAST a month. And so I have the little pisser to take care of ON TOP OF the million things I do. I am gone most of the day each day (8-4 ish).

Anyway, the little shitter is NOT potty-trained AT ALL. (Since my roommate has done nothing with the dog since she got it).

HELP!!! I got my dog when she was already trained, so I've never had to do this before. The dog pees when you leave her alone-- so I have been leaving her in the the (huge) master bathroom. I've also been limiting her water and not letting her have unlimited drinks. But when I come home she just pees from excitement. Even if she makes it out first, she pees again when she gets in just from the happiness of it all.

So in short, I need advice from those of you who have done this and done it well. We have two other adult dogs in the hsoue and they are fine. You can leave them 10 hours and they are ok.

Crate her!! or She needs to be put in a smaller room, where she wont be able to pee away from where she sleeps and eats. Dogs dont like to dirty the area they live in. Keeping her in a crate or very small room, and only taking her out to go to the bathroom should put her in the habit of going outside. You have to be really committed to this though. Make sure she knows your angry when she pees, but dont take it over the top. Also after a little while of being angry you have to forgive her, pet her and let her know shes still loved. If you dont forgive her, it could have negative affects. If you do keep her in a smaller room, you might also try putting one of the older house broken dogs in with her for an example. Youd be suprised how much a dog will learn this way. If it continues to be bad, when you catch her peeing in the house, AND ONLY WHEN YOU SEE HER DO IT, take her by hand and litterally rub her face in the pee, then immediatly put her outside. Its gross, but has a strong affect. If you dont see her pee, and its obviously been awhile, she will have forgotten what she did. Puppies dont always have the best memory.

Thats all I can think of for now, but I have very successfully housebroken all my dogs by these methods. Good Luck!!

+1 on the crate. Get one just large enough for it to turn around in.

Another thing that I think helps, is to throw the paper towels you used to clean up the mess, in the yard, where you want them to do business.

On a side note, I have a beagle that messes her crate regardless.

Most dogs benefit from a crate.

Yuip get a crate and block off parts of it so she only has litlerally just enough room to turn around. Dogs instinctivly will not pee if they dont have room to stay away from it. then when you get home, pick her up out of the cage and cary her outside. dont let her feet touch the ground in the house till se go's outside, after a while she will get used to this routine and you wont have to carry her anymore.

sticking the dogs nose in it is one of the worst things you can do, I know we've all done it before. It's bad because the dog (puppie) will get afraid every time it goes that it will eventually start eating or licking it up. I'm not saying all dogs will do this but some will.

Get the puppie a crate big enough for her/him to sleep in and have a place to go in. Puppies really don't have any bladder control and making them hold it for more the a few hours can cause an infection.

When your with the puppy try to put it on newspaper every 1/2 hour or so, so it gets it forms a habit on what to pee on. Damn puppies eat like 3 times a day so expect it to poop at least 3 times too. Just stick to one method and don't change it up so the pup doesnt get confused.

What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?

What kind of dog is it?

Don't keep it in the master bedroom with nice furniture and carpeting. Keep it in a smallish room like Texas Blonde suggested. Maybe put some newspaper down on the floor. I used to use the bathroom off the kitchen by the side door.

I said I've been keeping her in the master bathroom. It's tile floor and her little bed is in there. It's a huge room, too. THat's her place to stay when we're not home.
When she's bad I put her in the crate for 30 minutes or so.
I have been taking her out ONLY to do her business. I've been putting her on a leash so that she concentrates and isn't able to wander off afterwards. I want her to know that when she's out there, it's for a reason. I am just trying to be really habitual with her.
We are gone for 8 hours each day, and that's very hard on the puppy. She's very good about holding it in her little room. IT's the damn pissing from excitement that is out of control.

Get the book "How to house break your dog in 7 days" I used their technique when I got my dog. The only time the dog had an accident (by the door) was because I wasn't paying attention.

Yeah that would require me to go out and spend both time and money on a dog that's not mine because my roommate fails to understand the follwing simple concepts: AA means NO drinking at all, and when you're depressed, take your F*cking medication.
I think having to spend $ would jsut send me to the nuthouse, too. This morning I told my other roommate to come home and deal with the little pisser b/c I had a test. It was a much calmer morning, IMO.
