Morning, We just recently moved into a new house and training Roxie, my Yorkie, to go outside and potty. She gets it sometimes but not all the time like we would prefer she does. Is there an eating habit she need to be on to help this work a little better, me and my husband work but we take her as early as 4am, he will take her out before her leaves (1pm) and the kids will take her out once they get home (5pm) and then I will in the evening. We were told to feed her during the day and stop round 5pm, and this would help. She does have some accidents in the house though, we noticed she is trying to claim a spot but we want to break it before it get out of control. We have had Roxie since 2011 and she started out in the house being potty trained and did an excellent job. Any advise from anyone please, I want to keep her going outside.
Hello Roxie's mom! I couldn't help but notice that your baby has my name too. By now your baby is all grown and I am sure you've dealt with the potty training really well. But let me just share my experience with my dog, Fluffy. She's a shih tzu poodle. We had issue with her claiming a spot in our house when she was still a pup. Tested my patience for some time but eventually she outgrew it. Potty training her did took us almost three months! To think that's more than enough time than our previous dogs. But as the saying goes, all is well that ends well.
