Hey all. My first post here! So we've had a rescue from Puerto Rico for about 2 months now. We live in Brooklyn and it's much colder than PR
so the weather might be an issue, but here's the deal.
She was great in a crate and peed on pads when we got her initially like a champ. We tried to get her to go outside for her necessities but she's a bit fearful and there are tons of loud, distracting and disturbing noises in our part of town. She eventually soiled her crate a couple times and we thought, ok let's put her in the bathroom with pads and a bed. At this point she still.wont go to the bathroom in front of us anymore and only at night.
We had a trainer come last night and said we have to leash her to us and take her out frequently or put her in the crate. She didn't go to the bathroom outside despite 10 outings from noon to 10pm.
We put pads down in the bathroom and closed the door and she went on the pads.
I don't get why she regressed but what can I do to reinforce going outside and not inside? I know I have to remove the pads but I can't have her holding her bladder for more than 12 hours because she doesn't want to go outside yet or in front of us.
Any help is much appreciated!!
