I just wanted to say how helpful this forum is and a big thank you. We brought an absolutely adorable 12-week old puppy home and for the first few weeks he was peeing/pooping in his crate, in the house, and I was admittedly slightly frustrated that he just didn't seem to get it. After spending a lot of time reading and a lot more time training, he's been absolutely perfect for the last week+ (at 4 months now), alerting the bell when he needs to go out, sleeping through the night (or waking me up at 4:30 when he needs to go out), and has 100% figured out the leash. We are now introducing him to the dog park and to hikes, and he has been great at those also. To any of the new puppy owners who were feeling like I was 2-3 weeks back, this site is invaluable, helpful, and if you're having the same problems don't worry, stick with it and your pup will get it!
