  1. That I know! We clean with enzyme cleaners, but she is sooo good about telling me she needs to go out. It's not like you can ignore her pleas when she wants to go. So I am confused. Rings a bell and everything. And, these were two different beds. Just when I thought I was in the clear. This one was not easy to house train. But this has me baffled because she Iikes to hang in bed in the morning (but sleeps in the crate). Any other suggestions are welcome. Thanks--wendy
  2. Hi, I am hoping someone can answer a question. About 4 weeks ago, I went to change bedding in the guest room for some friends who were arriving, I found a big pee spot on the bed. We had recently had some work done on our smoke alarms, so I assumed it was out Golden, who was terrified of the smoke alarms. Today, our border collie was upstairs (and the Golden wasn't). When my husband went to bed, he noticed a big wet spot on our bed. The border had peed on OUR bed. We let her hang up there with us, but she sleeps In a crate in our room. She turned 1 two weeks ago. So, the
  3. Thanks. I forgot to mention that Maisey DoeS ring bells to go outside. Has since about 10 weeks old. And, we make it all businesss because sometimes she does it when she is bored and just wants to go out and just rings constantly, I am in Boston, but this dog is LOvInG this weather (50 inches of snow and very cold)!
  4. Hi, My adorable BC Maisey is about 8 months now. She is fabulous and full of energy and personality and sometimes mischief! Love her! However, even at 8 months, she is still not reliably house trained. A couple of times a week, she will randomly pee in the house, even after she has been out. I take her out every 2-3 hours. She always pees when she goes outside (I tell her "go potty"). 2 weeks ago, she snuck into the basement (she rarely goes downstairs) and pooped there. Since she was 6 weeks old, she has hardly ever pooped indoors. That, she prefers to do outside, she poop
  5. Hi everyone, Just wanted to get some opinions on house training. Our BC Maisey is 17 weeks today. We got her when she as 6 weeks, 1 day. She "got" the crate immediately and never had accidents (well, on e, but she was so freaked t, I doubt it will ever happen again.). But, she will stop , drop and pee anywhere, even at 17 weeks. Of course, it's not every 20 minutes now, but still.. She is out almost every hour at a minimum. She gets the going outside part. But, she does not totally get the NOT going inside the house part. She is confined to the mudroom (tile, no carpets) for most

  8. My pup is 17 weeks today and she is 20 pounds on the dot. She was a little small for her age when we got her (early--at about 6 weeks and 4 pounds). I would guess mine s on the small side, but not too small. She makes up for it in personality Wendy
  9. I learned this lesson the hard way when I was about 6. I hugged my neighbors German Shepherd, (which I did know to be an aggressive dog, even as a young child) and had a bunch of stitched along my jaw line and almost lost an eardrum from the bite. He certainly didn't like it and let me know. I would hug my own dogs (if they liked it), but never someone else's. My new border pup so far does not like it, but my golden would be happy if I had her in a head lock all day! You have to know your dog, but never cross certain boundaries with someone else's dog, even if you know them well.
  10. Thanks. Was not getting hung up on benchmarks. But she came to is early--6 weeks. I have been working so Much with her and some things were just not getting better after 8 weeks and I was getting frustrated with lack of progress in those areas. But, I guess some things can't get better until They are developmentally ready for it. She is a sweet dog, though! We are both very attached to each other already! Thanks again, Wendy
  11. Thanks, Everyone. In just a few days, everything has gotten drastically better! Like a light Switch! As for the peeing, on Thursday, suddenly things seemed to click and she has not had an accident since Then. She rings bells to go out and poop (as I said, she has never pooped in the house and would go nuts to let us know!). But, suddenly on Thursday, she started ringing the bells to go out and pee too! Was stunned. has not had one accident since!! And I did nothing different. She just figured this out all on her own. And, the biting was making me so mad. I was doing ev
  12. Hi everyone, I am glad to have found this forum. We have an 8 year old Golden female and after two years of pleading my case, I finally got my border collie! I had one in the past when I was much younger and not very experienced and thus had a quirky border collie named Wally ( who bore the scars of so many of my mistakes--separation anxiety being one of the,) who was my best bud for almost 16 years. So, we welcomed a tiny 6 week old puppy named Maisey this summer. I will attach a couple of pictures. Maisey is pretty high energy, which I don't mind. I am a stay at home mom and we
