    Let me as you a couple things:
    What kind of puppy is this?
    What is her feeding schedule?
    What type of food is she on?
    Does she have access to water all the time?
    Does she go for walks?

    Yes to water because of our other animals.

    A redbone!! What made you guys decide to get one?
    Hounds are notorius for being difficult. They have one thing one their minds: Hunting. Loyal, usually decent pets, but they need to satisfy that instinct to hunt. It's what they were bred for. Let me guess: You take her out and she immediately drops her nose to the ground, snuffling around instead of doing her business, right?
    I hope you cherish this sweet way of life, and I hope you know that it comes with a price.

    Actually her nose goes to the air then to the ground.. sniffing away at all the different scents! My husband wanted one so bad..ever since we seen the movie "Where the Red Fern Grows" We love hound dogs. Their personality is so funny! They are something else! Her picture is posted here somewhere if you haven't seen her yet. She is cute. I am sure she will get there. Today she ran in circles by my feet whining and went to the door... That was my cue to get off the Fg and take her out. We let them lead us on some hunts now and then.. Usually they hunt the outside cats. They both find them and howl away!!! Too cute!

    Well I just wanted to update you on Daphne. She has been doing very well. Hardly going in the house ( Maybe 2 times a week) She lets us know that she needs to go. She has been really, really good! I am happy with her now.

    To get her to stop jumping on family members (and others who are in the home FREQUENTLY), when she starts to jump - take a step back and turn away. Like everything else, you must do this everytime she starts to jump.

    For company coming into the home, keep a leash by the door and before you open the door, put the leash on the pup and make her sit. This one is harder, because you need to keep her in that sit until the company is in the door. Then keep her on the leash until she relaxes about someone "new" being in the home.

    I need help! I have an 8 week old cocker spaniel, and I don't have a clue how to train dogs, lets just say the house doesn't smell very good. Any tips, anything?

    I'm very sorry I just now saw this post. Please feel free to pm me in the
    future if you need any help.

    There are a couple of good books to buy, one is called The Art of Raising
    a Puppy and it is by The Monks of New Skete.

    Are you crate training? This is the best way to housebreak your pup.
    There is a product called "Nature's Miracle" that really helps get out
    odors from accidents, you want to make sure to do that otherwise the
    pup will return to that spot over and over.

    Vigilance is key to housebreaking, and remember your tiny pup's
    system can't hold anything for very long, I think the rule is 1 hour
    per month of age. So, your pup should be taken out every couple
    hours. After naps, after eating, after play, etc. I think you get the
    idea! And do not expect your pup to just go out alone, pick the pup
    up, carry it out to the spot you want it to go, put it down and tons
    of praise for going.

    Oh, and don't use any products containing ammonia to clean up
    after your pup. Since there is ammonia in their urine, that will
    make them think it's a spot for them to "go" also!

    Buy lots of chew toys. Play with them a lot, a tired puppy is a good
    puppy!

    Good luck, let me know if you have any other questions, and post pics!
