Hi I am new here and I have a six month old chihuahua. She will normally hold it until we let them out, ( I have two dogs the other one is trained) and then she will do her bussiness. My other dog sits on the matt when she has to go out and I am trying to get my chihuahua to do the same!!! Any ideas on how I can do this??? Please help!!!!!
There's not much chance of training the chi to do exactly the same thing as the other one does. Each dog develops their own preference for how to let you know they need out. While your one sits on a mat, the other might come to the door and scratch, or come stand in front of you and shuffle it's feet at you. There are literally hundreds of ways your dog might let you know it needs to go out. Dogs are each individual and you cannot expect the exact same behavior from your chi as the one that sits on the mat.
