New Puppy....Need Advice
Hello to all. We are now the proud owners of a 4 1/2 month old Hav named Lacey. She has acclimated beautifully to our home, but am getting a bit stressed with house training. I am familiar with the ins and outs of the process, but do have some questions. We have had Lacey for a week now and have had 6 accidents. Not terrible I guess, but I think I was expecting a bit more success, since Lacey is a bit older. She does not and did not previously use wee wee pads. I find that she does not always tell us when she needs to go, so we are very much on top of her. What I am curious about is why she would pee outside and then in about 30 minutes need to pee again. This is when she usually has the accident, since I'm not really expecting it. Has anyone else experienced this with the Havanese breed? Could it be a possible urinary tract infection? She does excellent during the night. Crate is always dry, and she doesn't wake up to go out. Suggestions?
