Potty training problems

Post by XYZ » Wed, 17 Dec 2003 18:09:43



I have 2 dogs, one english bulldog and another french bulldog.  They are
both almost a year old.  They are both poorly potty trained.  I have been
trying over and over again to crate train them (I live in manhattan).  I
walk them 3x per day and feed them 2x per day.  The first walk is around
10:00am the second walk is at 3:00pm and the third walk is at 12:00am.  I
feed them just before the 3:00pm and the 12:00am walks.  They poop and pee
right after I walk them.  Does this schedule seem normal, or does it seem
like this schedule might be the reason they are having accidents?

Thank you.

Those are not enough walks for a training situation. I housebroke my dog in
the city too. My article on it for the AAD site:

FWIW, you need to start over from scratch (as if they were brand new pups to
your house) and b/c the behavior has been going on for so long it may take a
while to housebreak them.
