Hi all,first post! Hopen some1 has some helpful ideas....
I just got a 3 month old Italian greyhound from a friend.Overall,hes a great little dog! Ive already taught him not to whine and he knows when we go outside,its time to do his business.Unfortunatly,she never eally potty trained him so he still goes in the house as well,but thats not the prob,I expected that.The problem is that I crate him at night and she must have left him in a crate for very long periods of time because he has NO AVERSIONS to messing in the crate!
I take him out around midnight,when i go to bed,and get up at 5am to take him out again.I even creep around getting dressed so as not to wake him cause I know he will have to "go" the minute he opens his little eyes.
Is there any way to break him of going in the crate? Or do I need to start getting up at 3am?.......

i take him out bout every hour n a half during the day,at night he has to go at least 4.i might have to use the pads but was hoping to avoid it..... Just wish the girl i got him from would have taken the time to train him,hes a smart lil guy and would have caught on fast Im sure.

I dunno why my chihuahua does it lol.We took the pads away and she just started doing it on cloths and such-who knows....but I really wanted this pup to learn to go only outside.I do watch him pretty much constantly,follow him around the house and since we have an apartment Im always outside with him.Unfortunatly I cant stay up all night to watch him in his crate,I suppose its just gonna take some time (and a lot of carpet cleaning lol).

btw our chihuahua sucks she is still peeing in the dang house, even did it in front of/next to my bf and not on the puppy pad. Luckily we have tile so I don't feel like screaming lol She really is not learning, even when we praise her for doing it outside. ugh
Lol I feel your pain! Our chihuahua has come a long way but still has her moments.Ive heard they arent the easiest to train especialy when they arent puppies anymore.Margarita is 3 and just now being taken off puppy pads......
