Need some help re: housebreaking pls
I'm seriously desperate here. It's been almost 7 months and Misha STILL isn't pad trained or housebroken at all. She sometimes pees on the pad if it's around, right in her plain sight, but if it isn't she will just pee wherever she wants. And even when it is right there she won't use it more than half the time. I find poop all over the house, I can't crate train her because she just pees and poops and then sleeps in it. I have to wash her every day because she's covered in it. I don't get it, dogs aren't supposed to pee and poop where they sleep but she's been doing it since I got her as a little puppy. I'm starting to feel like this is impossible, I can't have a dog that pees all over the place ... when she's sitting with me she will walk to the end of my bed and pee. Right in front of me. She doesn't understand anything -_-
I praise her like mad when she goes on the pad but she still doesn't get it. I even tried leaving pads everywhere and she won't use them. She thinks the world is her bathroom or something. I have to watch her every second she is out and jump as soon as she squats, and it's just not enjoyable having her around because she makes everything such a mess. I've never in my life had such difficulty training a dog. I feel like I've done everything, I don't know what to do any more ...
