chihuahua puppy doesn't want to go out in the rain :(

well winter seems to have struck the UK now and its raining a lot. We were doing ok with house training my 13 week old chihuahua cross when it was sunny but he hates going out in the cold and wet and I don't know what to do to keep up the house training (he goes on the grass in the garden). If its raining he just runs straight back in and really resists going out.

We have a large tree and bushes that provide shelter from the rain but he doesn't wan't to know.
any ideas or do I just keep up trying to take him outside? So far I have been stood in the rain for 50 mins at a time with treats, he refuses to go and spends the whole time trying to make a dash for the door to get back in.

Dogs typically don't like the rain because it carries sound very easily. This hurts their ears because everything seems louder than normal. I would suggest either setting up a small tarp-covered, or alternately, if you can wait 2-4 weeks and pay $54.99, you might consider Mutt-Muffs.

I have a chihuahua puppy also about the same age as yours! I posted a topic about a week ago over the same issue. He is doing really well with potty training but we had about 3-4 days of rain and it set us back a bit. I just follow him around like a dork with an umbrella and sometimes he will go but he had a few accidents.

He's a cutie!
