My problem is a little different, since we have a big yard and Cazzie our Hav has been trained to go outside. Where our problem is similar is our new, 5 month old Coton, just holds it! Pee and poop, I can't get her to go! The vet said to tickle her tummy but that hasn't worked. I see her circling and sniffing, I put her outside. Nothing. She doesn't yet get a clue from Cazzie. At night at least, she has been whining and then DH puts her on the cement slab in front of the garage, which isn't ideal but is at least outside and she does OK. During the day, I keep her as confined as I mercifully can, but when she does go during the day, she seems to have chosen the wooden floor in the family room, always when I have my head turned the other way. She's fast when she does go!
I never had a puppy this old and I wonder how she formed her habits. The breeder said she was being let out and going on the grass. Not working here.
Sweet Chelsie Coton
