Hi, I have a silky terrier that was given to me from my mother. There are a couple of things she does in the house that i dont like. The odd thing about it is shes potty trained but for some reason she goes outside but poops inside. I take her outside alot so she can take the time and go but she doesnt. So im having a problem w/ her because i would hate to have her stuck in the bathroom while im sleep so i let her hang around the house, which make me wake up to poop all over the house. So what can i do? Also it was told that she was fed house food not dog food. How can i get her use to dog food? I love this dog and i want to keep her but i cant keep on picking up her poop in the morning.
The answer is crate training. She will not poop in her own bed, and she is obviously only doing it in the house because she is left to run free. As far as food goes, pick a very high quality food, like Innova Evo, Eagle Pack Holistic, or go raw. At first you could mix a little hamburger or chicken into it, with maybe a spoon of mashed taters. She will not starve herself, although she might turn her nose up at it at first. Persevere, and she will come around. Good luck with her.
