6 month old Boston Terrier Still Not Potty Trained
Hello. I have had this Boston since she was 7 wks old. I have two other dogs, one big & one tiny & thought that watching them go outside, on their schedule would greatly benefit the Boston, so at 4.5 mos old, I stopped using the crate & started allowing the Boston to stay out so she could get on schedule with the other two dogs. Big Mistake! Every Single Day I come home to pee & poo in the house, even though I leave her outside for 20 mins in the morning before I leave for work. I don't feed her in the morning, but normally one of the other dogs has a small amt of kibble or the cat has some in the bottom of their bowls. She eats whatever she can find! I've never had a dog that was a bigger pig than this one! She Never used to use the bathroom in her crate, so I KNOW she CAN Hold it for the time I'm gone if she wants to. I'm gone for about 6-7 hrs. She'll even go to the bathroom with me here at home. She WILL NOT let me know when she needs to potty. This dog Never whimpers or makes a peep at the door. I got her in spring & the back door was open a lot more often then as the weather was soo nice & now that it's boiling hot & muggy outside, the door is closed & the air is on. I fear I've ruined her! I'm going to hang some bells from the back door handle & try to teach her to nudge them when she needs to go potty but I need more help than that for this dog. If there's a rug in my home, she'll pee on it! She has even peed on my bed, after going out to potty for 15 mins before turning in!! When she poos, it's Not by the back door where all dogs go out to potty, she goes by the Front door! This pup's sister lives next door with a family member & they are having the Exact-Same-Problem with their puppy. HELP!
