hannahkesh Posted October 2, 2016 Share Posted October 2, 2016 Hi everyone! I'm a proud new mom to Carl, my now 4 month old Cairn. I've been having a lot of difficulties with house training. I adopted him at 2 months from a breeder. They had a farm so he could eliminate pretty much wherever. I've been working to take him out first thing in the morning before work, once I get home and again every 1-3 hours until bed. I know that this can be a difficult breed to train as my mum has a Cairn. The problem is that he's still having accidents in the house. I'll let him outside, stand around for quite some time and he won't eliminate. As soon as we come inside he'll pee. Another issue is that he'll make the signs that he has to go pee, but before I can jump to him he'll have an accident. He also seems to lack the ability to hold his bladder when he gets too excited or happy in general. He'll pee all over himself or on whoever is holding him. My vet said that he's supposed to be house broken by now. I'm starting to feel like a bad Cairn mom. I don't know what to do or what I'm missing. I'm starting to wonder if there's a potential bladder issue or if I'm not doing something properly. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Or if anyone knows of a Cairn trainer in the Metro-Deteoit, MI area I would also appreciate it too!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
