Hi All

Need help. We took Cara out of her crate & had successful toilet habits but this last week we have come downstairs to a lake in the kitchen!!!! Her bed is on the hall, food & water bowls in the kitchen.

Why has she gone off track, what do I do next & how long will it last???

She might just want to keep you on your toes!
Stanley is the same, we go for days without incident and then find a surprise puddle. Just keep on doing what you're doing and I'm sure it will come all right in the end.
That's what I mutter to myself as I'm reaching for yet another roll of kitchen towel and the dettol spray :))

After using half a kitchen roll I gave up on the dettol spray & headed to the garage for the mop & bucket. Think I must be keeping Dettol makers in business at the mo. Xx

I think you're just being a bit forward and enthusiastic with her house training. Take a few steps back and put her back in her crate at night again for a couple more months, she understands that. Remember she is still very little and not developed enough yet for the whole house to be her den...in her mind. Don't worry she'll get there on the end. J x

Yes its back in the crate I'm afraid:) Like Julia says 14 weeks is very very young to have that much freedom at night. We have only really let Weller have the run of the house at night and he is 18 months!!;)
Good luck you will all get there eventually.
