Hi folks, Just after some toilet training help. Ive trawled through the internet but cannot find my specific scenario and so am just after some help. I have a mix breed 20 month old - I think he is a mix of chihuahua, jack russell with daschund colouring. He hardly ever poos in the kitchen at night but does sometimes give the table and chairlegs a good spray. The other dog we have is a 4.5 month old jack russell bitch. She wees and poos anywhere and everywhere in the kitchen. We lay down mats but she tends to cover those and if she doesnt find a clean patch on the mat she will just go anywhere. She is also playing with her own poo! lovely I know. They both have their own crates, though mostly sleep together at night and the crate doors are left open. I'm thinking now about crate training them overnight but wanted to know.....will this work? My plan is to feed them around 17:00 - 18:00, let them out around an hour later if I dont spot the warning signs beforehand, and of course let them out should they seem to indicate they need to go then let them out at around 11:30, midnight-ish for a final time. After that, cage them until around 7:30 in the morning to which I will open their crates to let them out and reward the toilets. I do reward the young puppy treats when she goes outside now anyway but then should I be treating my older pup if he does it all outside too? Will the younger pup learn from him also? I only ask because our vet told us we shouldnt be treating him going outside as its like rewarding an adult for going to the toilet. I think the older dogs problem is he just is used to be able to do it whenever and wherever he wants. Being in his own bed may just encourage him to hold it until hes outside. I may start to take away the mats at the back door also as it seems she knows to do a very small wee and get the treat. then ten minutes later will do another on the kitchen floor. And one final thing. We let her out, wait in the garden and she will maybe wee and maybe poo. Sometimes shes out for 10-15 minutes and as soon as were back in the house, and turn our backs shes done a poo inside. How do I combat that? Thank you in advance, you people are brilliant!
