I'm fairly new on this forum but I am so glad I found it!
I've had my little 12 week old chi for 2 nights now, I am SO in love with her!
Her potty training isn't going too well at the minute.
She sleeps in a smaller crate in my bedroom at night and she settles well and sleeps through the night. she did poo in her crate as it contained her bed and 1/2 of the crate was newspaper.
I take her downstairs in the morning to her bigger crate for her food and water. Before having her food and water she had a wee on the paper in front of her crate I gave her lots of praise for weeing on the paper. BUT A few minutes later she did a poo on the carpet! she won't poo on paper
I would ideally like her to go outside to go toilet but its freezing outside and if I put her outside she just cowers on the floor all cold. She doesn't know what to do.
Am I babying her too much? Should I be teaching her not to use the paper at all.
I have to keep my eye on her at all times as she went behind the sofa to go for a poo yesterday! Its exhausting worrying she's toileting everywhere.
I love her to bits and I want to teach her the right way.
Any advice would be great thank you so much xxx
