I adopted my female dog almost 3 months ago. She is a year old now. Her previous owners had her chained up outside (since she was 2 months old) without shelter and in the mud. She is not spayed yet, but I will be making an appointment for next week. She is doing very good on her potty training. Hasn't had an accident in at least 7/8 weeks. She let's me know when she needs to go out by circling and standing at the front door. But, she asks to go out every 30 min to an hour still. I was hoping she would be able to hold it longer by now. I'm guessing it's due to her being outside her whole life and was able to go whenever she wanted to. I've not been crating her either. Am I going to need to crate her to teach her to hold it longer? Thanks for any help with this.
