Luna is driving me nuts!

First let me say I love my precious little pup. I really do! But OMG She is going to be the death of me. She is 13 weeks and more then a handful! I can not get this dog to use the pee pad OR go out side. She is in a pen that is 3x3 ft. It has her bed, food/water, and a spot for the pee pad. she will pee on the floor instead of the pad EVERY TIME. She has even moved her pad out of the way to get to the floor. I will take her out on a leash for 15+ minutes first thing in the morning and almost every hour on the hour and the second she walks in the door she pees on my floor What am I doing wrong????? Today she found the kitty litter......and ATE the cat's POOP I need advise, tips, and maybe even a strait jacket cause she is driving me CRAZY!!!!

How can someone that cute be so naughty? Sorry I can't weigh in on the potty training as it's been about 16 years since I've been through that but so sorry that you're having all that trouble. I'm sure someone will step in and give you some advice. In the meantime, though, she is very, very cute, especially with the little girl bow in her hair. Chin up

Sounds like you are doing everything right. She will get it. When she does pee or poop out side, make a huge deal about it.

I'm sure that those more experienced than I can give you some specific suggestions, but I can provide some encouragement. My dog is just about a year old now, and I remember that when he was about 3 months old I was about to tear my hair out. I thought he would never get the potty training thing, and was resigned to the idea that I would have to watch him every second until he was 2 or 3 (years) old. Then around 4 1/2 months, all of a sudden he got it! Whew! You are working really hard, are open to learning, and your heart is in the right place, so just keep at it. Trust me, it gets better (easier), and it's oh so worth it!

Once I finally found a treat that Brody wouldn't turn his nose up, potty training him got much easier. Pairing going in the right spot with a treat really helped with him.

She needs a space with no bare floor. Just the bed and a proper surface to potty on. After three days of success, then try enlarging the space, but only a little bit to start with. She has the habit of peeing on the floor. You need to eliminate this possibility, and develop a new, proper habit. Kitty poop is fair game if it's available. You have to think ahead of the puppy. Don't expect her to pee on a schedule. She's a baby and will go when it needs to come out. It's all about habit on a surface that they are used to for the purpose.

I started taping down the pee pad and that has helped a little. As far as the kitty litter...I was praying she would not find it. It is in a room that she is not allowed in but I let my guard down and left the laundry room door open. Live and learn.
