I am new to this whole forum thing....so Ill start off by saying HI! My name is Kyla. I just got a Great Dane Puppy whose name is Nero.
He is almost 3 months old and I am in the process of potty training him. I have never had a Dane before, so I am struggling a little bit with the "right/wrong" way to train a Dane that I have read about.
I just started slowing switching his food (as per the vet) and put him on a probiotic (as per the vet) because he has had the run's for the last week. It goes off and on between soft/somewhat solid stools to runny/patty like ones. He still eats and drinks normal. Same energy levels but I am still concerned about his bodily functions.
As of now he struggles to hold his bladder for more than two hours, which I know will get better as he gets older. I am trying to be patient with the potty training but the last three mornings I have cleaned up MASSIVE amounts of poop (Mostly diarrhea) all over the floor from during the night. A week ago I would wake up to a mess free house. I dont know why all of a sudden he cant get through the night.
I dont want to kennel him, because our other dog doesn't get kenneled, not to mention my house is small and a giant kennel would not exactly be ideal.
I guess I am just looking for any tips/tricks anyone may have that I could try to keep the messes to a minimal...
I appreciate it.
