I am desperate for some sage advice - i'm at the end of my tether!
I have two Chi's, one short hair 3yo and one long hair 5yo. I live in a flat so they have a big indoor toilet, one of those boxes with fake grass on. This is in a sun room, it has it's own door etc. My first problem is they do not 'ask' to go to the toilet, I have to guess when they need to go - if I guess wrong, they just poop on the floor.
When I do open the sun room for them to poop/pee, they use the box, great! But when I go and leave them in the shut sun room, they take to peeing/pooping all over the sun room - even next to their bed.
I've tried all the usual toilet training stuff, rewarding, priasing etc. But as you can see, 5 years down the road, they still haven't nailed it. I love the dogs, but resent them massively for having to constantly clean up their poop and pee.
All constructive advice would be much appreciated!!
