Am I a failure?

Here`s another great article:

Hello, first time puppy/dog owner here. I recently adopted a Pembrock Welsh Corgi puppy (Flynn). Growing up, I always wanted a dog but never had the chance because my dad was allergic. Recently moved out in my own, and since I am a teacher and being quarantined, I thought that it would be a great time to get a puppy since I can spend the next 3-4 months with him.

Flynn is your normal playful nippy puppy. Flynn is crate trained and can go literally the whole night without having accidents. But anytime I take him out of his crate, even watching him diligently, he always seems to pee or poop on the carpet. I am trying to bell train him and he know that ringing the bell means going outside, but he has yet to understand that the bell means bathroom. I can go days without him having accidents inside and when I begin to think that we are making progress, he would then have all of a sudden pee and poop inside.

I keep expressing for advice from my friends who had puppies and they all keep just bragging about how “my puppy was potty trained within 4 days, a week.” I know potty training can go on for months, but I don’t know if I’m doing anything wrong. I have had Flynn for almost two weeks now and he is about 11 weeks old. I realize he is young and a baby, but I don’t know what else I can do to help push him along the potty training route. I feel like a failure cause everyone keeps telling me that their puppy has learned so quick doing the same thing I’m doing, and I just don’t know what to do. I keep taking him out every 1-2hrs/after nap, ringing the bell with his paw saying “bathroom,” wait until he pees/poops/15mins, give treat and positive reinforcement right after he pees/poops. The only thing I’m struggling is recognizing the body signs for him ready to go.

Any advice would be great. I just want to make sure my puppy is growing up into a mature/playful dog. As a first time dog owner, I don’t want to be a failure as a parent.
