I have 7 month old male chihuahua named Cheeko and we need help! I have had him since Febuary when I started pee pad training him right away. Needless to say its not working..... and its 4 months later. I have spent hours upon hours sitting with him at the pee pad getting him to pee or poop and than always rewarding him with a treat. I asked the vet and she said he is fine just to be patient because they are hard to potty train. Most of the time he will just pee wherever he wants to right in front of us, its getting to be a huge problem because he has completly ruined most of the carpet. Everytime he pees/poops we take him right back to the pee pad and tell him "bad dog you need to pee here!!!!" I have never had a chihuahua before only bigger dogs that have gone outside to pee and they whine and whine at the door to get out. Another thing I have been doing is "crate training" I have a small crate that use to have a pillow inside it but yet again he just peeed all over it and it was beyond the point of washing it so i threw it but he will pee in there and just lay in it...... this is strange and i need help im at my witts end with this dog!
