Potty training 6 year old chihuahua
So I adopted my adult chihuahua last year. She is 6 years old now. Her owner before had a doggie door which as far as I know she used. She has been such as a pain since I have had her....she has peed on the carpet numerous timessage. It became less a sand less as she got more comfortable with the house but she continued to have accidents. I bought her a crate in hopes to train her however don't thiblame it was properly done because she pooped all over the crate the first time I put her in it. Never tried it since.
So I just moved out into amy apartment by myself and bought her a doggie door so she could go potty outside. I have a pretty large backyard for an apartment yet it has no grass. Anyways she uses her doggy door frequently, even throughout the night. The problem is when I go to work. She has been peeing on the carpet and ruined one area of my carpet. Im not sure if it's the cold weather causing her to no longer use her doggie door? I even set out pee pads and she uses them sometimes but today for example she peed right next to the pad rather than on it....I work 8-5 and come home at 12 for my lunch hour to let her out, but apparently it isn't enough...any ideas on how I can get her to not pee on the carpet? Any suggestions would be much appreciated..thanks
