Hi, My name is Peg and my husband and I are Golden Retriever lovers. We have had 4. Our oldest just passed away two weeks ago and we had an opportunity to adopt a 7 year old female. She is not leash trained but is doing very well learning. Our biggest problem is getting her to go out to pee and poop. We feel like we are walking for miles and even then she might not do anything. We have a large pen area where all our other dogs went out to relieve themselves. She will only stand there and not (never) do her business there. She will go in the yard on leash but like I said much walking around is needed. For instance, she did poop this morning and pee but it is now 7pm and she has not peed again. Getting worried. Only had her 4 days. I know it takes a lot of adjustment for her to leave her family after 7 years (and 3 litters) to join a pair of retired folks like us. She is not an active dog and we figured she would fit right into our life style. So far, so good, except for the outdoor business which is frustrating the heck out of us. Our 14 year old that just went to the Rainbow Bridge could/would pee/poop on demand. We got her as a puppy at 8 weeks. Help.
