Pee Pad Help - Startled Puppy
Hello everyone. We just brought home our nine week old Chi. In the past, I have crate trained a dog to go pee outside, but have never tried pee pad training before. I have a pad in a litter box and tried to move him into it, mid-pee. I ended up startling him by picking him up. So he stopped peeing, wouldn't finish in the litter box and didn't finish peeing until I allowed him to jump back out. I have non-scented pee pads covering the floor. So I cut out where he peed and put the patch in the litter box. He has sniffed his pee there, but doesn't care. I also tried the Nature's Miracle spray, which reeks. I have also placed him in the litter box when I think he's about to go and he just wants to jump out. Nothing is working and I am open to any helpful ideas. Thank you for your time.
