I hope you dont mind me asking a few dog related questions. To give a bit of background, On Sunday we got a Bichon Frise boy dog 21 months old. He came from a well respected breeder within the Bichon world who mainly bred for shows, not pets. Although she is now starting to sell the dogs due to her own health issues. He was on a raw food diet, slept in a crate with other dogs in nearby crates. We were assured by the breeder he was toilet trained. On Monday, we decided to change his diet as we didnt want to feed him the one she was giving. So we give the dry food recommended to me by Pets At Home. He seems to have taken to this ok. At night he sleeps in his crate but winges a bit, but then settles. The problem lies with his toilet procedure. I take him out first thing in the morning and last thing at night. My wife takes him out during the day. He has been peeing and pooing on the floor in the house, luckily its wooden floor so cleans up easily. A couple of days ago we tried the pads that go under the sheet on a child bed at night and he seemed to go occasionally on them. So, yesterday I bought the puppy pads, He hasnt once gone on these at all. I thought he would use these straight away as it has the scent that attracts. But this hasnt worked as yet. Although we got him on Sunday, and have dramatically changed his routine and diet, am I expecting to much of him to be toilet trained in our house? Should I be giving it a bit longer before becoming concerned? Do you have any advice that you can share please? Thanks, sorry for the long detail.
