Training for inside and outside - how?
I live in the city and decided to train Ellie to use a pee pad in the house OR go outside when I took her out. I ended up finding the UGODOG, use it with a pad, and thus the inside is very easy for me.
This allows me to take her out for a walk or to play, but I have no specific schedule I need to follow and she simply pees and poops indoors - occasionally outside.
She is now 6 months old and "mostly" trained to the pads.
I'm now faced with a problem I didn't anticipate. What happens when I want to bring her to other people's houses? I don't want to arrive everywhere forever with my dog and a wee wee pad - and most of my friends wouldn't appreciate it very much either.
Any ideas about how I might get her oriented toward the outside? She seems not to be very interested at all although she loves to go for a walk, meet other dogs, etc.
I would like to be able to have her continue to use the pads in my house - but know that you have to use "outside" when you're in other houses.
