Or...
I have a Chihuahua who is 6 months old and being trained to use pads inside. I did it when my eleven YO was a pup with little problem.
The new pup WILL NOT use the pads. She treats them like most use there crate..sleeping and NEVER as a toilet.
After reading some of the posts, I get the idea that her early weeks must have been with a pad in her crate and that is why when she is shown the pad now, at best she curls up and goes to sleep on it.
My question is how do I reverse this process?
And no, As always, Chi in MD is not one who will easily go outside.
Please help...
Thx
Toffel

I was paper training my pup at the beginning. I bought a spray that encourages the dog to go in a specific spot. Maybe try spraying that on a puppy pad? I would only spray one so as not to confuse her. You could also try putting some of her urine and feces on a pad, if you don't want to get the spray. Having the scent of her own elimination may help encourage her to go on the pads.
Do you have a crate for her to sleep in?
