Okay, I've had my dog (Titus, a pug) since he was 8 weeks old and he is 14 weeks old today. The last couple of weeks he's been doing really good with the house training. He has only had 3 accidents in the last week. We are using the bells, which are hanging on the sliding door to the backyard. Up until now I have been going out with him every time and taking him out on a leash. He is always taken to the same area. Now it is snowing and gross and it's killing my fibro to go out in the cold so much so I was wondering if any of the pet experienced here thing that it's okay for me to just open the door and send him out when he dings to go. We have a fully fenced backyard and he can't get into trouble. The only potential problem I can see if not knowing if he has gone but I guess I would find that out pretty quickly if he started going on the floor again. I know my mom never stood outside with a dog while it went potty so I am wondering is 3.5 months is old enough to just send him on his own?
