I need some help, I have a 14 week old lab/shephard cross (more shephard). She has Bern puppy pad trained since 8 weeks old and has done amazing. I have been trying to transition her to outside and having a very difficult time. Last week I took her out back or on a short walk frequently and stayed out with her for an hour around her normal pee times (after eating, playing and sleeping etc). She would not go outside, I would be out there with her for like an hour. I then bring her in and she would instantly squat on the floor where her pads would be. I would stop her mid pee or poo to take her outside(thinking she would finish outside) and npthing. I would bring her back in after another 45 mins and she would try to go on the floor again. I have tried taking her pee pads outside for smell and nothing. We took her camping in our motorhome and she NEVER peed in our motorhome and peed outside fine. How to I get her to go outside now that we are home. I even take her out with my other dog and nothing. She will hold her pee till she is inside.

With a dog like that, I'd load the dog and, make sure I had all day, if need be, to get the dog going outside.

Give her as much salt free meat broth as she will drink - it's going to be a good amount. Take her outside, wait for her to pee - she will have to eventually, she can't hold it forever. Priase and reward her for going outside. Wait, she will go again, probably 3-4 times before she's safe to go inside again and, yes that might take five or six hours. Praise and reward her every time she goes outside. She will get the idea.

After that, in for 2 hours, out for 30 minutes, in and crated for 5 minutes, out again for 30 until she goes. She does not get house privileges until she goes outside, then she gets 30 minutes and, crate for 15, then out to potty again. Always reward and praise every time she goes outside.
