Hi, I just brought home a new 3 mo old puppy. I have started to do indoor potty training.
I have a few questions:
1. My puppy does go on paper, but I am finding that I must have paper available in several places depending on where in the house she is confined. Is this typical? For example, I have papers in each part of the house or playpen that I confine her. Right now she does not have the run of the entire house. I have several areas sectioned off. Is this a good strategy?
2. Once she is reliable to use paper all the time, how do I train her to go outside too? By this I mean, how do I train her to let me know that she has to go potty outside? Can this even be done?
3. Since I do confine her sometimes to smaller areas because I cannot keep an eye on her while I am getting ready to go out, etc, I have noticed that she does not like to be in a small area like a playpen, and one that is not near me. She will cry and carry on the entire time I am not within her sight. She even has managed to escape some gated areas by pushing the gate aside. Is this typical? I find that if I am not in the room with her, she is not happy. How do I stop this behavior since I cannot always be near her?
