My Morkie (maltese & yorkie mix) puppy has successfully used potty pads since we adopted him at 8 weeks of age. Recently he is going on the rugs throughout the house without any attempt to use the pad. Despite encouraging him to use the pad he doesn't.
Secondly, I have used the pads since he was a small pup and didn't do the outside thing because of the cold weather and his small size (1.5lb) when we first got him. I then began working outside of the home and I am gone 10 hours each day so I stayed with the pads. Is it too late to train him to eliminate outside?
If you can help I would appreciate any advice I can get. Thanks!
