Default Help!!!

Hello. I have 3 chihuahuas. Lily is almost 7, Lexie is almost 4, and Slick is almost 3. We have a doggy door that we always leave open. During the day the dogs have no problem going outside to go potty. We crate them while we are away but at night we allow them to sleep with us because they are to loud. We leave the light outside on and a light in side so they can see. Some nights they go outside without a problem others they go potty on the carpet in our room. We have tried taking away water a little before bed and putting them outside for 15 mins before bed but they still keep going inside. Any Ideas?

You could try a few things, but they'll all probably interrupt your sleep to some degree. The easiest would probably be putting a pee pad down over the spots where they pee. They'll likely use the pads, and you can toss them in the morning.

Otherwise, you could try to crate them at night and work on their being quiet.

Other-otherwise, you could put little bells on their collars so they wake you when they hop off the bed, and you can personally take them outside to potty.

We use to use puppy pads when we lived in an apartment. They used them most of the time but I have 2 puppies, a beagle and a lab, who like to eat them.

Slick is afraid of collars and when we put one on him he won't move. I believe the people we rescued him from used them as a punishment or to hit him with .

And I've been thinking about kenneling them. thanks for the ideas.
