Training to Eliminate Outdoors
My five-month-old shepherd puppy won’t go to the bathroom outside. I rescued her at two months, and she is paper trained. I’ve tried to use soiled and regular paper outside, and I have kept her outside for six hours and have walked her with other dogsall to no avail. Do you have any other suggestions?
A couple of quick tips: Take her to grass or dirtto a dog, these surfaces are similar to wee wee pads. Keep a loose leash and turn your back. Dogs don’t like people hovering over them when they go to the bathroom.
You need to remove the option of eliminating indoors. If your dog hasn’t gone to the bathroom after being outside for 15 minutes, take her back in and put her in a crate or a small area. Take her back outside after 15 minutes and see if she goes to the bathroom.
