Hi All, I have a 12 week old male bichon frise. I am moving to my own place in 2 weeks, and for now have been living with my sister, who has a 12 week old chihuaua. They got all great, except for the occasional territorial syndrome and rough housing. My bichon, Kobe, is a great dog EXCEPT for his potty training!! He used to go on the puppy pads with no problem, but for the past 3 weeks he wont go on the pads. We will be in the bathroom (where the pad is) for about 10 minutes, he won't do anything, as soon as I open the door he will run and pee/poop elsewhere. Lately, he gives me absolutely no indication that he needs to poop. I watch him very closely and in a matter of seconds, without any sniffing or circling, he will squat and go! I have read that bichons are very hard to house train but I need to cut this habit fast! He will be fully vaccinated in 4 weeks, at which time I can take him on walks outside, but for now, the puppy pad is all I got! Any suggestions would be MUCH appreciated!! Thanks in advance!
