Hello, so I have a new 10 week old Dachshund puppy. She is wonderful and when we got her from the rescue they told us to use puppy pads to train her because she is not allowed outside. So that's what we have been doing and she is doing pretty good with it. I would love to train her to go outside instead but she is so tiny and it is so cold outside I am not sure this is the best thing for her. I would love some opinions. Also she screams at night for like 20 min in her crate before going to bed and sleeps in her crate right next to our bed on the night stand. I assume this will just get better with time. She has a puppy play pen for when our schedules over lap and we are not home so she can play and she loves that much more than her crate. She pees and poops in her crate every night like 3 times and doesn't wake us up to take her to the puppy pads so we ended up putting one in there and we eventually wake up and smell it but I don't mind waking up and potting her but do I let her do it on pee pads or start taking her outside. I just wanna do what's best and I am confused, it has been so long since I had a puppy. We also have a 7 year old plotthound rescue who is potty trained.
