    We have a foster French Bulldog 7 months old who prefers pottying inside. She receives many opportunities to go out but doesn’t show the usual signs. When taken out, she will just sit but when brought in, she will eliminate. Have never had this before…

      Hey Kim,

      That sounds tricky! Have you considered getting a grass pad inside to begin transitioning them?

    I have a 14 week old Frenchie. She will only “dribble” pee outside. When she comes inside she eliminates fully. She will never poop inside only outside. Any suggestions on how to get her to fully empty her bladder outside? Thanks!

      Hi Jennifer,

      Unfortunately, it is just about persistence and positive reinforcement. If your pup does pee outside, make sure you reward the behavior with a treat and a positive tone of voice. It may take a while but if you stick to your guns and create a regular schedule for taking her outside to pee, it will eventually come good.

    I have a 12 week old puppy and she doesn’t pee or poop outside at all she just plays with the grass! She doesn’t have regular times that she goes even though we have a set feeding schedule. Is there anything I can do?

      Hi Becca,

      Congrats on the new pup! Lots of fun times ahead 🙂

      The best advice is to be patient. 12 weeks is still very young, and most Frenchies would take longer than that to be fully potty trained.

      Some can take up to 6-8 months to be completely trained for going outside. We know, not the greatest!

      Just stick to best practice and be patient, you’ll get there.
