Q: What's worse than training a ten week old puppy to view the green grass as his potty when his brain isn't fully functional?
A: Working with that same puppy suffering with a urinary tract infection (UTI). Just as things were starting to click. We had begun rewarding "outdoor potty" with a bit of kibble and Hawk was starting to race to the door before he would potty on the floor. :-) He would seemingly even go on command which was primarily due our anticipating his action. This is a great way to introduce commands.
Then apparently out of nowhere he needed to potty every 5 minutes and didn't have time to let us know - more accidents. We immediately began a cranberry regimen, which took affect rather quickly.
Lesson Learned: Looking back it is clear that he was showing these symptoms for a couple days, I just attributed it to the inconsistency of being a puppy.
