Hi everyone. I am new to this site and glad to be here. I just got a puppy. He is 10 weeks old, a shihapoo and cute as can be. Our house training goes good for a couple of days, then it's like we never even started. What am I doing wrong?:confused:

Hi there,
sounds like eveythings normal.....it really is 1 step forward and 2 steps back for the first many months...don´t give up...keep being consistent, read the books, keep calm...and slowly you will see an improvement. Remember that a baby dog can be as much work as a human baby (thankgod not so many years) but I don´t expect miracles from my child, I just enjoy the teaching and the learning. Your dog really wants to please you...he just doesn´t know all the rules yet. Wait till he´s a big teenager and you´ll have another phase of confusion!!! Join a puppy group and you can all laugh together about sleepless nights, and ruined shoes!
good luck...and enjoy! They ain´t so fat and cute again!
