Help !!!!!!
I've heard Chihuahua's are difficult to potty train. Keep in mind he is only 11 weeks old.
"......after coming back in he sneaks into my 2 year olds room to pee !!!!!!!"
Is there a way to have your pup with you everywhere you go while you are at home? Like having him on a short lead and have the other end tied to your belt. That way when he looks like he needs to go, take him out.
While he is doing the deed praise him quietly ("Good boy" or "Go Potty"), not in an excited voice - it may startle him and get him too excited to go. You may get excited after he is completely done and make sure to give him a treat to help show your pleasure.
I'm sure you could find a lot more information online, especially since you wouldn't be the first person to have problems with potty training.
