Hi everyone! As I said in my first post, I'm used to crate training and teaching a dog to go outside. I am a first time Chi owner, but have done a lot of research to know that Chi's don't like the winter or rain and will end up going inside. Which is why I'm trying to learn how to train him on a pee pad inside a litter box. My guy is 9 1/2 weeks old. I live in a part of the US where we have all four seasons. Right now, it's Summer and because I'm doubting my indoor potty training skills, I'm wondering if I should train him to go outside. I know I have seen posts where owners do do that, putting on shoes and winter gear on their Chi. My question is how is your's potty trained? If he/she does go inside - on what? Pee pad, litter box, grate? How did you potty train, step by step? Thank you so much for your help!
