Zoey & Ziva going back to basics
At the advice of our trainer, Zoey, Ziva & I are entering a WAY fun adventure of 're-potty' training! Oh the joy! Basically they are going in stripped down crates for now, will gradually re-introduce beds or buy Kuranda Beds. They will be in their crates for the most part then taking them out to new potty area (litter box) every 30 minutes and twice during the night (can we say F-U-N?). Gradually as they become more reliable they will have more freedom, and right now will get free/play time as a reward for going potty like they should in their new spot. If they don't go potty back into their crates they go for 15 minutes. I just can't take any more peeing on fabric, clothes, beds, carpet, rugs etc. Rob is about ready to rip both his and my hair out lol. He is ALWAYS the one that finds the accidents with his bare feet, poor guy. He is worried we are going to have to replace the carpet when we move. They will also get a few hours of 'desk' time at night & on my days off as they both hold it pretty well when they are on my desk.
Their new potty spot at first will be in a large storage container so they can't 'trot' off the potty pad as we are going to gradually get them used to going potty on the litter. That's what we had to do with Miss Zoey as a puppy as you'd put her on the potty pad she'd walk off it a couple feet, squat and pee right where she was. I feel like I have a newborn puppy! So much fun! Wish us luck, I will post our progress here.
Will keep track of our journey here.
Thank-you Sugarbaby for my awesome siggie!
