I've posted here about my "new" dog, but she is starting to grow up, she isnt the 9 weeks she was a month and a half ago. Accidents are pretty infrequent, but I believe this is the case because she is outside when i'm at work, chained up, and when im home i watch her, and give her breaks quite a lot. But every now and then there is a random accident, and while I fully understand that young dogs will have accidents, i feel that she doesnt really know that she shouldnt be going to the bathroom in the house, she just never has to go when she is not pinned up, or outside. Should I just wait longer? Try new meathods of training? I've heard most suggestions and am open to new ideas. Second question, I'm having trouble teaching her to stay off the bed, or the couch, she has a bad problem with jumping on people, friends family, to get attention, whether its in their laps, or on their legs while they are walking or standing. I can tell this pisses people off, i wish she would just do it to me, so i dont feel so bad for the other people who are fed up with a dog jumping on them. some people say to ignore the dog, others say to push your knee out, other say to say the command "off". I don't know how to keep her calm, and keep off of people and things around the house.
