Hi, I'm new and got a Chihuahua in December and he's the 4th dog in the house hold and while the other 3 (different breeds) were a breeze to potty train, Ozzy at 4 months old will simply not house train and its getting frustrating
I take him out on a regular basis and after playtime, after sleep and after meal time and I can be outside as long as 40 minutes and he won't pee or poop which makes me think "Oh he must not want to go" come inside and goes on his pee pad
I've tried taking his pee pad outside, I've tried using training sprays you spray on the grass to attract them to pee there, nothing is working. Some days I'm lucky and he'll pee and poop as soon as he goes out and I reward him straight away with petting and a treat but then back to square one where he'll do it inside, its like he can't seem to remember or catch onto the praise WHEN he has done it outside.
Any tips would be helpful.
