  1. Just in from a quick walk...a little success he did a pee outside one step closer tomorrow he will be taken out every 2 hours and watched like a hawk in the house.
  2. I'm from Scotland yeah. I will look into it definitely tho. Crate training method is all new to me, never seen it used personally.
  3. When he wasn't allowed to go out, we were using those dog mats which he would also go on. When we first got him the breeder was on holiday or something and the daughter of the breeder was the one selling the pups...so she basically told us he was around 6 weeks but couldn't be 100% sure, so we took him to the vet and they said wait at least another 2 weeks to make sure he is at least 6 weeks to get his injections, so of course after the injections we had to wait another two weeks before he was allowed out and as I said we used the puppy mats. Now I'm not currently working I'm able to dedicate a lot of time to training my dog, so as you said atleast every 2 hours I will do that from now on. He has done the toilet outside in our garden and I've praised him like hell for that. Sometimes my mother comes with me and walks her dog...not sure he is also distracted by his 'best buddy dog' lol so I will take him alone every time. I will definitely look into crate training...it's a method I've never seen before.
  4. to get my BC to go toilet outside , for weeks I've been trying to get him to go outside...I take him out 3 times a day for at least 1 hour, he will walk and walk without doing nothing...then soon as we're in the house he goes. My BC is around 4 and half months old now...got him around 6-7 weeks had to wait for him to get his injections etc and only 1 month or so he has been going out...I'm thinking of trying to take him out more than 3 times now at least 4 times a day to see if this makes a difference. I would love some input on ways to encourage him to get him to go outside...I even took our Jack Russell(mothers dog) out a few times so when he went praised him hoping my dog would pick up on it Any information/suggestions would be appropriated!
  5. Seen this today on channel 5 (broad casted in Scotland)
  6. Beautiful little thing Congratulations enjoy your many many years together!
  7. It's now gone past midnight in Scotland, so it's now officially Xmas here Merry Christmas to you all!
  8. I've never used a treat he just done it more a less straight away I use treats for certain other commands, but down was just to see what he would do, he followed my hand and went down. Thanks for the tips Ninso and MaggieDog. Also clicker training sounds interesting, something I've never thought about using.
  9. Thanks for the replays, greatly appreciated. This is the first time I've had my 'own dog', as my two other dogs were trained by my parents, as at the time I was to young to understand. Now I'm 19 it's a new experience and a fun one at that, I absolutely love my little dog, it's the first we've had a BC! We had two other dogs one was a white German Shepard and one a mongrel. Also I will be posting some pics of my little boy soon!
  10. Hi all, I'm just posting this for some training tips. I would like to learn my 3 month old BC how to lay down when told, even if he is outside and quite a distance from me. I can get him to go down using my hand close to his nose and saying "down" but he won't lay down when I just say the command. Also I would like some information on walking him on the leash, he seems to pull and go in front of me a lot, I want to have him walking calm beside me. I know he is only young, especially when he has only been outside 5 days now since he got his injections few weeks ago. All tips and information will be appreciated thanks.
