Submitted by: Nicole Comments: Debbie Says: Hi Nicole, As soon as you get your little furry bundle of joy, take him/her outside to the area you will be letting him use for poo/podding. If you have a exercise pen/ portable wire 4 x 4 pen, this would be best because he can’t run off. Let [...]

I have tried everything to get my 8 month old toy poodle to quit using the familyroom as his privatwe potty room. We have used pads, which he uses occassionally.We have tried the go outside treat reward, which works some of the time. But he will not let me know when he wants to go out. Nor does he go when we take him out. He waits until he is back in the house and goes in the family room. I have another dog that lets me know all the time when she needs to go. But the new puppy just doesn’t want to work with us. Potty trips every hour or two don’t seem to help either. What can I do next?
