The bathroom she is in is right next to the room we are in. She can see us, we talk to her, play with her over the gate. We dont have a yard to play with her in at the moment. We just have a small area where she goes potty. Our back yard is a mud pit and we cant do anything about it until the weather gets better. It is always way to cold and or rainy outside for playing anyways. Where we live it rains almost 9 months a year with very little breaks. We do play a lot inside, but she'll stop in the middle and just pee with no warning. One days she pee'd inside probably 8ish times in a matter of 15 minutes, plus a few more times outside. Everytime we took her out we thought YAY.... then she'd come right back in a pee again.
I guess I never quite experienced that. Once Bella peed, she was done for a while. As SMBC mentioned, I gave her a treat reserved just for potty time. As I mentioned above, she will usually do what she needs to do to get the treat. I still do it the same way at nearly 8 months old. Even on our walks, I encourage her to complete her duties before we start, and throw the bag of poop in the garbage can in the park.
