Question:

Don't think I'm crazy - my boyfriend & I seem to have successfully trained our 3 mos old puppy to "sit" & "lie down" and she isnow learning "play dead", but she is not completely housebroken!

At first i thought it was a fluke, but she can really do it. is that possible? can a puppy learn this fast, even if she can't hold her bladder yet? We used food treat as rewards for her tricks, but use praise & not treats for potty training. Maybe treats shld be used since it seems to work? what do you think?
