At what age will the puppy start telling you he has to go outside to go to the bathroom? We have an 11 wk old pomapoo. He has done really good with house training as far as he will go when we take him outside. until yesterday he had VERY few accidents in the house. We have had him for about a month (since he was almost 7 wks old). We take him out when he wakes, after he eats after he gets out of his kennel etc. Yesterday however he had a lot of accidents in the house and we arent sure why. we still took him out like we normally do. Anyways, I was just curious at what point he should be telling us he needs to go out?? we live in a split level house and usually always take him out the front door but that is down some stairs and he CANT go down stairs. we have tried working on it with him but he is super terrified of it. Thanks for any input you can give.
