I have a morkie, and she will be a year old in June. I got her in september, and we thought since she was a little dog, we could just train her to use the doggy pads indoors. She was using her doggy pad up until we moved it to the kitchen. (it was previously on our living room carpet, and we were afraid it was soiling the carpet) She suddenly stopped using it. Is it because we moved it so abruptly?
We’d also like to start training her to outside. We’re gone from about 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. during the week, and she doesn’t have a doggy door. Any suggestions?
Thank you so much :]
the best way i have found (after potty training a yorkie and a great dane) is to put them outside every 30 minutes, or after they eat, drink, play, wake up etc, and make them stay out there until they go, walk them around, etc, they will go, then praise them. do it every 30 minutes like clockwork even if u have to wake them up, they catch on fast, i have potty trained 2 puppys like that within 2 weeks, and 1 was 5 weeks old when i got her, the other was 6 months with no prior training. if ur not home all day, then crate her while ur gone, it will be a mess when u get home, but theres nothing else u can do if u dont want ur house a mess and smelly and stained, she will learn eventually if she doesnt wanna be crated anymore.
Yes moving the pad right to another room was too fast for her. And she probably thought you had given her a permanent spot after all this time. You can buy her a doggy litter box to put the doggy pad into. This will save your carpet and its easier to move.
I adopted a pad trained 6 month old and it took me removing the pads totally before she agreed outside was better. Mind you this was after 2 months of treating her like the other dogs and expecting outside to be the place to potty. I haven’t had experience with morkies, yorkies or maltese’ but my chihuahua could be similar in attitude. Good Luck
Hi, I understand that you are looking for some advice or resources to help fully train your dog or fix behavior problems. If a professional dog trainer is not an option at this time, or if you want to trt training your dog on your own (a great way to bond), I’d suggest you https://bitly.im/aNBr2
A friend recommened it to me a few years ago, and I was amazed how quickly it worked, which is why I recommend it to others. The dog training academy also has as an excellent home training course.
crate her when you’re not home or have someone come 1 time to your house. take her outside and when she goes praise her and use whatever motivates her(toy/food) for reward. when she goes add a word like ":get busy": or ":potty":. put her outside often and u might want to keep her on a leash in the house for a while when u train her to prevent accidents. good luck.
try some news paper coz u dnt wanna spend money out n it dnt work becoz of her age and just try n put her out side as much as you can n tap her nose not hard just to let her no that its bad every time she wees in door. but if she wees on the new paper or outside give her a treat to let her no that she did gd
hope i could help x
