Hello everyone.well I wanted to know if any of you could give me some tips on how to house break my puppy. When I first got her I trained her to use the pee pads (big mistake) well now that she's bigger they just stink up the apartment, so I wanted to trai her to go outside. Well I take her outside and the only time she will actually go potty outside is right as soon as I get her outta her cage in the morning. She will pee outdoors then, well I walk around with her and all she does is want to play out there so then I bring her in. Well she would run straight to the pad and go on there. So I would scold her so now she hasn't been going on the pad she has been going in on the carpet and she hides and does this. So now I have been trying to put her in her cage if she does not go potty outside but all she does is scream. I feel bad but she has ruined my carpet and I don't know what else to try. Also I have noticed that she got used to the freedom of the pads so she doesn't just go pee once in the morning or poop once she poops like 2 or 3 times and pees twice! And I take her out to try to accomidate that and all she does is hold it til we are inside!! I'm sooo frustrated!!
