It will happen right? My other shelties figured it out sooo much easier. Mine and the ones growing up. my “late bloomer” I got at 12 weeks and was trained by 17 weeks. A few accidents after I am sure, but rare. my first I got at 10 weeks , trained by 12. Yes he was a unicorn. Two accidents at 6 month regression. My girl, who is stereotyped by my mother as so much eAsier, is 17 weeks and clueless and I got her at 8 weeks. She could go all night at 8 weeks. My mim jinxed me. We started to get some asking about two weeks ago, she would go to the window and look out. In a crate or pen she will yip. For the last week, nothing unless crated. I gave her the kitchen instead of her crate while I taught today just in the afternoon. She peed. My kids had taken her out on their break. And again later right in front of me while penned in the kitchen. She peed huge amounts so I understand not being able to hold it any longer. It hadn’t been that long since she had been out. We take her out on a leash which reduces distractions and she goes faster. It is hard for her to sit still long enough to empty her bladder outside and after play she is drinking alot. But not all the time like an ill dog and we are still hot here. I would be worried but she doesn’t have this issue crated or at night. the dog is extremely smart. That isn’t the issue and very active with an off switch, easy to calm not blind hyper. She can focus through her active periods. She has many more accidents in the evening. We take her out often especially for a dog who can go 10-6 or 7. My daughter’s theory is she is in a regression stage. I hope so! She is developmentally mature in other areas compared to my boys ie hitting stages a little earlier not just growing sooner. it will come right? I have just been so spoiled with my other two. Encourage me! she is cute though!
