My family got a lab puppy right before Christmas (8 weeks old). We have been working since then to get him potty trained. He does well in the kennel at night/day. When he is running around inside we are hit and miss. He will go when you take him outside, but you have to make him. Seems like it hasn't clicked yet to go do the door to go outside so he can go to the bathroom. We don't leave him unsupervised while he is inside with us. We limit his water intake and he will go to the door and ring the bell to go outside to drink out of the outside water bowl. We praise him when he does go outside and goes potty. Just wondering if there is something we should be doing different or if we are just right on course with him and it takes more time.
