Just ry to be consistent and keep her crated as much as possible. I have to admit Chihuahuas can sometimes be a challenge to housebreak. All three of mine go Potty outside and also use Pee Pads indoors. Right now it is to cold to take them out...plus it is snowing. Just give lots and lots of praise! Be patient, it might take a while.

Hello and Welcome :hello2:

How old is your new chi?
Are you training her to go outside, potty pads or litter?

We love pictures here so we would love to see a pic of your all your pets and family.

Hi and welcome! :wave:

I had great luck w/ crate training..when I couldn't watch them, in the crate they would go. I took them out lots through out the day and night. I'm talking almost once an hour. It was tiring but well worth it. I have a chi and a shih tzu ..both known to be a little stubborn w/ house breaking but a have to say the crate works b/c my chi is 8 mths old and my tzu is 4 mths and I hardly ever have accidents.
