Default Brand New Puppy & First Time Chihuahua Mom

Hey,
I just got Chico, he is 3 months old and goes on the peepad 80% of the time but he is having a little bit of trouble going poo on the pad. He went this morning all by himself and I was really impressed, but he also went poo on his bed in his crate😮. Everyone on here seems so great with chi's so any advice would be great. I reward him every time he goes on the pad.

Another thing Chico loves to do is bite! I know he is teething and I have bought him lots of toys but I'm afraid he will create this bad habit of biting everything and everyone in sight! Any thought?

Thanks for all your help!

Dogs are pretty smart. If you reinforce the fact there are certain things (toys) he's allowed to chew on every time he tries to chew on the couch or something, he will learn quickly. When you catch him chewing on something he's not supposed to, just give him the toy he's allowed to chew on. He's still a baby when it comes to potty training & there will be some setbacks, mistakes. It's important to always praise him when he goes on the pads.

I'd take some little poo and take it and put it on the pee pad, so when he goes over to see what it is, you praise like mad when he sniffs it! He'll get the message. Good luck with him.

Edie doesn't like to poo where she pees, so I bought two dog litter boxes. She prefers to poo on the one that's farthest away from where we are.

I read in a training manual that dogs like new toys best of all, but that they get bored after five or six presentations of a toy. So to keep Chico interested in chewing toys, you might want to pick up lots of different toys (they can just be a different colour, apparently) and give them to him one or two at a time. That way he'll always be super excited to play with chew toys and might be less interested in the stuff he's not allowed, that's there all the time.
