your beagle to warn you they need to potty?

It is so weird, Baxter has done soooooo great with accidents (VERY rare) and he was signaling us by sitting by the door (which made us really watch where he was, because he was quiet and didnt bark)And we would immediately take him to potty, all the while saying oh you have to potty, good boy baxter for pottying outside etc.

But now all of a sudden he is not signaling us anymore. He will just stop and squat.
He has had more accidents the last 2 weeks than he did when he was 7-16 weeks..seriously!!!

I am so confuzzled!

With girls it's different I think. Chloe just learned that peeing is not an indoor thing, and when I potty trained her we used the wee-wee pads (6th floor).
With poop it's easier, cause their anus gets swollen, so you can see it's coming. I just picked her up and put her on the pad.
Now she goes outside. That was very strange though, I never told her not to go on the pad, but when she discovered the outdoors, she preferred it.

She won't go on the pad now, even if her life depends on it. Go figure!

Java climbs halfway on me, and starts pawing at my lap or chest. That's usually followed by a very very serious stare.

After having trained all boys, including humans, Casie is the hardest. I don't know why he is so hard to get a clue from...maybe it's the going outside that he is still afraid of. Last night he SAT on the couch and pee'd....huh? He had just been out for 30 minutes. I do think boys are harder to train, but then I've only had boys.

We got lucky with Jersey. One day, she went to the door and scratched at it. We didn't have to do anything to train her.

A lot of people use bells at the door. Hang them by the door or on the door knob. Ring them everytime you go outside to take Baxter potty. Eventually, he should learn to ring the bells when he needs to go out.

Baxter still scratches when he wants to come in????

I actually have a friend who taught her dog to step on a bell (the counter bell dingers)when he has to go outside.
I may have to try that.

I guess i would go back to basics. When he squats and does a pee, put him outside but then you really have to catch him in the act. Even if you dont catch him, now this may sound daft but point the wee out to him & then put him outside for a few minutes.

Poppy is now 4 & 99% of the time she will ask to go out by running to the door & back again whilst skipping but if its really cold out she will do one on the quiet! Also when its firework night (5th November) the fireworks scare the hell out of her & she wont go out at all so we have that every flipping year to look forward to!

Cooper was really difficult. We finally got him going on the patio (best we could do) and then started taking him outside as often as possible. Now we know he needs to go when he goes to his leash or sits by the patio door. He is over a year old now, and he just started doing this a few months back.

Good luck!
