How do I stop my puppy from peeing at night?

Best answers

Make sure you give your dog one or two more potty breaks before heading to bed.

Bring your pooch's bed in your room so you'll hear if he gets up.

If your pup makes it through the night, be sure to get him outside first thing in the morning to relieve himself.

After he "goes" in the right spot, praise him with a treat.

Make sure your dog goes outside to potty before bed-even if that means they have to go on a walk. Give HUGE praise when they do anything they are supposed to. Create a nighttime routine: TV off, hallway light off, outside light off, etc. This will let them know that they have to go potty because you are headed to bed.

Make sure you feed your puppy at least a couple hours before you put her to bed for the night.

Make sure you take your puppy out to potty (and make sure she goes) right before you put her in her crate for the night.

By the way, we've had puppies potty outside then immediately potty again inside the house.

Quietly praise him and get that special treat ready.

As soon as the poop/pee is complete, immediately praise him, quickly give him several treats and then play.

Now your dog gets to do whatever he wants (go for a walk, run back inside, etc.).

Here are some suggestions:

  1. Take your puppy outside often, including first thing in the morning.
  2. Reward your puppy with a treat or say "good dog" when it pees in the right spot.
  3. Never scold or hit your dog for accidentally peeing inside. Simply show no reaction and thoroughly clean the area.
  4. Be patient.
