I have a 16 week old pom-chua 4.4 lbs of love. However, we can not get him to potty train, we tried the bell, the pads, the crate. He spends 8 hours a night in his crate, NO messes we take him out in the am, he does all of his business, then we take him out constantly, and he comes in and hides and poos and sometimes pees on the mat others not, he even peed on his bed in his crate, what to do?? we are so frustrated,, we love this little guy, but we need him trained,, he is in obedience class and does well, EXCEPT for potty
I would try an x-pen, and take him out after every meal, and after a sleep. It's one way to keep him in one place and yet still have a little room. You might want to check with the vet to make sure there are no physical problems, although unlikely, if he's holding it all night! Good luck with him.
