Hereof, can you train a 10 month old puppy?

Advanced Training By the time your pup has reached 10 months old he will be so well trained the neighbor's children will look like little demons in comparison. But remember, the learning and training should never end. Introduce new, more challenging behaviors and fun tricks.

Likewise, how do you stop a puppy from peeing and pooping in the house? Watch for sniffing, squatting, circling or tail out straight — and take the dog out immediately. If the dog begins to poop/pee inside: Immediately interrupt him by clapping and saying “Ah ah!” Get the dog outside as soon as possible (carry him whenever possible and put the leash on the dog as you head to the door).

People also ask, how long can a 10 month old puppy hold its bladder?

Establish a routine Generally speaking, a puppy can control their bladder one hour for every month of age. So if your puppy is two months old, they can hold it for about two hours. Don't go longer than this between bathroom breaks or they're guaranteed to have an accident.

Will my puppy ever be potty trained?
