I know that housebreaking is probably one of the most asked about questions but I just can't seem to find any information on my problem. My situation - I have a puppy that is just over 3 months old and was rescued. I think that she was removed from her litter too early and was never taught to keep her sleeping area clean. In addition, she was kept in a kennel and never allowed outside to poop and pee and therefore doesn't seem to mind doing it in her crate now and then laying/playing in it. Since I've had her, we've made great strides and she is able to make it through the night. My problem - while she knows that she shouldn't be going to the bathroom inside the house she still has not made the connection to let me know when she needs to go just after the fact. Its been a little over 2 weeks that I have had her and working night crew has allowed me to take her outside every 30 min to an hour, after playing and after eating just as all the books say but she still manages to have an accident quite often. She is very smart (has already learned sit, stay, laydown and wait) but she just doesn't get this. Does anybody have any ideas on how to reverse her thinking to let me know that she needs to go potty instead of the fact that she already did? Thanks for any advice.
