hi all..well i asked about the peeing in the crate..now i have another one...she is now 11 weeks old..we have started letting her out on the chain to go potty...i have always walked out with her to show her the area i want her to go in..and she always has...so we have graduated to the chain to go out..someone is always watching her..she loves the outside..but we do watch her...but now i have caught her twice going poo poo on the deck!! sometimes she has peed on it..and i can understand her not being able to hold it to go down the steps...but the other?? she came up today just to go up there! what do i do...i didnt scold her because i went in to lay down my 3 year old in bed so i didnt catch her doing it! but it happened within maybe two minutes..i was out with her before i went in to lay down my daughter and the pup went down and in the yard to pee...but came up to go poo...so i am really confused...i cant be having her go up there...someone please give me advice!!! thanks
Do you by chance have snow on your deck? We live in Canada and during the winter frequently the dogs will do their business on the deck..to them..snow is snow. They do however never go on the deck during the non snow months. I have worked as a dog walker for the past 2 yrs and almost all the dogs I do let outs for will pee/poop on their decks in the winter if it is covered in snow. None of these dogs will do that when the deck is not snow covered.
i am from michigan...so ya i have had the snow...but i am trying to remember...i am thinking it was gone when she started it...my hubby keeps it shoveled good...but i guess there could have been...but i dont have any on there now...and she still will peepee up there...havent had her go poo in a few days....i am just having fun dealing with puppy things...i knew when we got her...(kids begged) i would be the one dealing with her...lol...but i am doing ok...anyone else have any suggestion???
