Potty Behavior Question - advice needed!
Hi everyone! So, Teddy has been with me for a week now. He's amazing! I've noticed a couple idiosyncrasies in his potty behavior, though, that I would like help/advice on.
Number 1 - He will not pee on the pad if it is in a holder. I got a holder for the pad so he won't move it and he just peed on the floor next to it. So, do I just forgo the holder and hope he doesn't tear up the pads?
Also, how do I get him to go back into his x-pen on the pad, when heís out playing in the house?
Number 2 - He has not, and I think will not, poo on the pad in his x-pen. In fact, he has never gone poo in the house, anywhere since Iíve had him. I caught him one time, get into position on my living room rug and I immediately took him outside. Problem is - I work and I have had someone coming for a lunch time let out, and he's doing great, but I'd like to have some comfort in knowing he would go poop on the pee pad in the xpen if he needed to. I am thinking maybe all the praise when he goes outside has made him think he canít go inside! Anyone experienced this or have any thoughts? Thanks so much.
