I am at home today. The weather outside pretty much is less than wonderful. I am doing my best to house train our new dog, Chynna (ch-eye-nuh).She is about one year old and we adopted her from a local vet. I know I need patience, but going from "never been soiled" carpet to accidents from our new furry animal family member is trying me greatly. As I said, it is raining outside and I took her outside 30 minutes after she ate her morning meal and "nothing!" Why will she not "do her business" even when the grass is wet?
We do put her in a crate when we leave the house. She gets to go out quite often, but she seems to enjoy soiling my art studio floor. I hate to gate the access because she may choose another area of the house. I really would like some pointers. I asked a friend via Facebook and he told me to be patient and reward her with sugar cubes when she does go potty outside. So, with this said...do you have any pointers for me? Is there some special trick? I have read ideas online but I am wondering how long this process will take?
Your attention to this little matter is greatly appreciated!
