How are you cleaning up the mess? Are you using an enzymatic cleaner? I use diluted vinegar. Also, try stopping her if you catch her in the act. Are you using Pee Pads in the house? If so, she might be confused because she used to pee on the pads inside and now she has to pee outside. Don't get mad at her, accidents happen. Since she isn't reliable, don't let her out of your sight. Tether her to you if you have to. Take her outside every 20 mins. Take her outside if she starts sniffing the ground. Throw a major party when she potties outside. If she doesn't want to go, crate her for 10-15 mins and try again.
I have been using the enzymatic cleaner until about 2 days ago. I ran out and haven't had a chance to get more so I've used vinegar. We have wall to wall carpet, so even if I clean one area, she moves on to the next. We do not use pee pads. I have tried latching her leash to me, however she often just sits down and doesn't want to move. Makes it hard to walk around. Catching her doesn't work. She doesn't usually sniff around, just squats and goes. If I try to stop her by saying NO, or clapping or whatever, she just looks at us and keeps going.
Today while I was at work hubby said she only went in the house 2 times. However as soon as I got home she went 4 times in the house. I saw her doing it once and when I went to pick her up I found another fresh spot a couple feet way. I took her out and she went. I praised a lot and gave treats. Then when she came back in she went again. I again took her out. Again when we got in the house, she went again.
If she starts pulling on your clothes, ignore her.
I would love to.... but she is putting holes in them.
Potty training can take up to the age of 5 months. If you take her outside she may be too distracted with play instead of going potty. Try to take her in the same place so she can smell her #1 and #2
I know fully training can take a long time, but at this point she is going completely backwards. She goes more IN the house than she does outside. We always take her to the same area. Our backyard is pure mud right now, so we only take her to our small front yard.
how about teaching her "table manners" we always have a half an apple cut up for her while we eat dinner. She has to lay down in order to get it. We taught her table manners from the first day she was at home. I know some people say it is begging but I rather her lay down with us and know she will get something then fighting her whining while we eat. I also don't feel right eating while she is just looking at me and drooling.
We often feed her dinner while we eat. However she eats so fast that it doesn't matter she will be right back to us in a couple of minutes. I dont think I want to give her that big of a treat every time we eat just to keep her occupied. I'd rather teach her to go lay down. I dont want her looking at me and drooling, I want to teach her not to beg all together. Starting with not jumping at us when we have food.
