Panicking - Potty Training
We just brought home Gumdrop - 8 weeks old. She's super sweet and adorable (aren't they all???). She's doing great, but I'm also taking her out every hour, and also getting up every 2.5 hours in the night to bring her out. I'm exhausted, but I want this to work. I've never had a Chi before and after reading the difficulty everyone is having with potty training, I'm panicking!!
I've never had trouble potty training dogs before so is it just the breed? My vet says no - a dog is a dog - they just have smaller organs so digestion is faster, and the tiny bladder can only hold so much. They basically have to go pee more often.
I don't know what to believe.
So I'm hoping someone can give it to me straight ...
Are Chis un-potty-trainable??? It seems like all I read are negative training stories. Can anyone offer a success story?? I would love to read one and learn what you did to have your efforts succeed.
