So we got a puppy on Sunday he starts puppy preschool in 2 weeks but I have question that maybe some other dog owners could help me with.
He is an outside dog he has his bed and dishes on the undercover back patio. He will go out on the grass to do poops but he keeps doing wees on the patio.
We are so used to cats but we never had any issues with our previous cats they literally always used the litter box so this whole dog thing is new territory for us
Any ideas how I get him to do all his toileting in the yard rather then on the patio?

With our puppies we were told at puppy school to reinforce the correct behaviour, but not make too a big a deal out of the incorrect behaviour, unless you caught them in the act.
So whenever we noticed the puppy was about to pee, we would quickly pick them up and run them to the grass, then when they peed, we'd give them lots of praise and a treat.
When we discovered a wee on the floor, we'd just clean it up and not make a big deal out of it, as we were told that the puppy wouldn't be able to make the connection between the old wee on the floor (they would have already forgotten about it) and being yelled at.
But if we caught them weeing on the floor, we would give a loud, sharp "No, bad puppy". Then take them outside.
Hope this helps!

The other tip we were told was to take them onto the grass each time they were fed or had a drink, and not let them back on the floor until they had done a wee / poo. This way it established a routine for them, and you got a bit mre control over when and where they went to the toilet... There was a lot of waiting around with that method though!

I always say "wee, wees" even if they poo. As adults now when I say that they automatically go outside and wee/poop. And as a post above said, after meals, straight after and drinks take them to do a wee/poop. Positive reinforcement helps as well, good boy/good girl. That's what helped me.
