Okay, so our puppy Pepper (Blue Merle Aussie Shepard / Black Lab mix) is about 4 months old and she is driving me nuts!
I have had tons of dogs in my life, and this is the first that I don't know what to do!
First of all, she is CRAZY SCARED of me. I don't know why, I have never hit her, or beat her, I've only pluck her on the nose when she is too crazy. I mean she is scared! Like she pees herself if I stand up too quickly, or if I'm telling her no. She doesn't do this with Michael. I've tried loving on her, giving her treats, nothing works.
Second, she pees in our house wayyyyy more than a puppy should. She knows she pees outside, and sometimes I'll let her in after being outside for awhile and she immediately pees. And she knows shes not allowed because she'll pee as she runs. Plus we have new carpet, so no other animals have peed on it before her, so it's not that.
We have tried puppy pads by the door, doesn't really work for her, cause she'll just pee where ever.
I'm seriously stressing over this. I can't figure out why she is doing this or how to stop it. I don't want to find another home for her, and I definitely don't want her to be an outside dog. She's super sweet and super smart. We have taught her sit, stay, lay down, paw, and even speak but she is refusing to be potty trained! AHHHH! It's very stressful with a baby and her peeing. I knew it would be hard potty training a puppy in the winter with a 3 month old baby.
P.S. She loves the rain and cold weather, so that's not an issue at all.
I just neeeeeeed advice/help!
