I have a 3 month old yorkie and I'm having an incredible hard time making her potty outside.
I know the best way is to crate train her but once you put her in the cage she starts yapping so loud the neighbors can hear her from inside their house.
If she pottys in the floor I tell her no and put her outside but that's quite pointless considering she already did her business.
The worst part is, when she first wakes up, I put her outside. I continue to put her outside every 45mins. But she does the same thing, she goes outside, stays outside for ~15mins, come back in and INSTANTLY find a place and potty.
I also know to watch the "signs" of her needing to potty, and I do. But sometimes it's hard because she will wander around aimlessly sniffing, and that's exactly what she does when she has to potty, starts sniffing.
I did not have this much problem out of my shih zu and he goes to the potty outside everytime no problem. Every dog I have had, has never had a problem. Obviously they took a little bit of a work, as all dogs do. But I have been trying for 2 months to potty train this puppy and she just absolutely refuses.
I love this dog but if I can't get her to potty outside, I feel that I'm gonna have to give her to someone else. I have 2 kids, one being small and I can't worry about whether or not their going to be playing in dog poo in their room when I'm not looking...
