Smile Puppy unable to hold!

My puppy is now 7 months old and pretty much trained. She always asks to go out and even if we fail to notice her she holds it. These last few days we have just weaned her off the playpen completely and she is very well behaved. However this morning, whilst the humans were in deep conversation, she was asking to go out but the humans couldn't see her (due to the layout of the house) and she simply gave up and squatted ( doing a poo) and that was it.

I just thought I would add she has a bad tummy at the moment and the clocks just went back ruinin her scedule let me know if you think it's normal thanks

Totally normal and as you said the humans were distracted so it's not really her fault! I would say your doing everything perfect!

Would love to see a pic or 2!!

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

I agree. It's not unusual to have a lapse or two well after toilet training is complete.

I'd have to agree that if she was giving the signs but you weren't looking....that an accident here and there is normal.
