    Hi all, I have a somewhat unusual training problem. It seems that my dog (8 years old Lhasa Apso/Maltese mix) is a little too well trained, and since a few years ago she will only go potty outside. While this is ordinarily not a problem, if I have to leave the house for a considerable period of...

    No matter what I do, I can't seem to potty train my two dogs. They're both 7 year old chihuahuas who live in an apartment and use pee pads, but tend to miss alot and cost me my carpet. Now they're even starting to go in places I never wanted them to go, forcing me to put a pad there. They came...

    Hi Everyone! I’m at my wits end I don’t know what to do. I have 2 rescue Maltese. One boy and one girl. My boy is great and I don’t have any behavioral issues with him. But recently my girl has me ready to pull my hair out! She’s always been a sneaky pee-er; instead of telling me she needs to go...

    Hi, I have a 12 week old Chiweenie (mini dachshund and chihuahua mix). I have had him for 4 weeks. We are in the process of having him pad trained because he is too small to go outside yet. Some days, he wakes up and he will use the pad in the morning including for peeing and pooping. However...

    I have a rescued hound mix that is approximately 3 years old, he was around 1 when I got him. He’s always been weird when it comes to pooping on a leash, and at times has gotten better. I work days and my ex worked evenings and would not work with him and he would rarely potty with him so I...

    Hello, My name is Izetta, I have an 8-year-old Yorkie Australian terrier mix named Terri. I have had her since she was a year old and adopted her. When she was younger I trained her pretty well considering I didn't know what I was doing. She has always been pretty good about not peeing...

    We got our Boston Terrier at 8 weeks. He’s now a little over 4 months and I don’t feel like potty training is going that great, but then again, I’ve never had a puppy before. He seems to pee a lot…I talked to his vet about it at his last visit and she said to limit his water, only leaving water...

    Theodore (Teddy) is 4 months old, and a Chesapeake Bay Retriever - I know, notoriously stubborn. He was brought home from an AKC-certified breeder at 8 weeks of age. However, Teddy is doing GREAT in regards to pooping outside. Hasn't had an accident in that form since he was 3 months old. Peeing...

    Hi all, it's been a while, but I'll dive into the question: We are going to be puppy-sitting my brother's 15-week old terrier mix puppy: Akira. Akira is a really good girl, but she's used to peeing and pooping in my brother's balcony. Here's the thing: I don't have a balcony. I don't have a...

    Okay, reaching out for some help. My CO is 8 months old now, and he is usually very good now at potty training. He does not "tell" me when he has to potty, but he just isn't a vocal dog unless he's on alert for a perceived threat. He doesn't stand by the door, or even sniff around for a good...

    We just took in an 18-month old collie who's so sweet! Her name is Nina and she's very healthy and up to date on records. Nina is very friendly, and while a bit shy she plays normally with our other dog. We're just having a few issues with her that we haven't had with any of our other dogs: 1)...
