    hi I need major help with my puppies and training them!

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I'm new here but does anyone have an advice on puppy training....! I have a 13 yr. old Poodle Named Sunny and two new cockapoo puppies, I had them for about a month an a week. Gracy anne is 5 months and Little guy is 9 weeks.
    Little guy is well trained but gracy is not so well trained. She P and P when she wants to out or in. its insane.

    When I take Gracyanne out side she might pee... I usually take her out for a walk and wait about 10-20 mins forher to do her buz. but then when i bring her in.. She goes right up stairs and poops on the rug.. or do both at only..
    whats going on here . I take them out often and I have them in a small area with newspapers in that area.. I clean up after them regularly.

    Both puppies eat leaves and an chew on bark and twigs.. whats up with this?
    Gracy will even eat poo occasionally. IS it early enough i can stop these habits beforet he become permanent.

    Of course those habits can be stopped! Leash walking should help.

    You can let them run around outside for play time, but while you're housebreaking them I recommend putting them on a leash. That way you are right there with them every time they pee and poop so that you can be there to get excited and offer praise when they go. If you're just waiting 20 minutes and letting them in without watching, you don't know if they've gone outside or not and they don't know that you're happy with them. Also if she's on leash, she can't stop to eat the tasty poops she finds and you can clean up after her right after she goes. Make sure you're feeding good top quality food so that they don't feel a need to eat poop to get some nutrients that they might be missing. They're still very young, so don't expect house breaking to be complete for a good while yet. Puppies take so much patience--that's why I foster adult dogs. :p

    The only thing I can add to Homelessdog's great advice is that if you have newspapers in your home for the dog to pee on, he thinks it's ok to pee inside. He doesn't think that it's just ok to pee on newspapers. So, I would eliminate any bathroom habits which take place indoors...period. Take him out often, watch until he goes, praise a lot when he does and watch him like a hawk inside or crate him when you cannot watch him.
