Serious Potty-Training Regression
Help! Just 5 days ago Mochi was running to her ugodog to pee almost 85% of the time. All of a sudden, she stopped going to the ugodog to pee completely. So I went back to square one of training and now. Whenever I think she is about to pee, I lead her to the ugodog.
Sometimes she goes in the right place, and I praise her profusely. When she doesn't, I put her in a time-out for about 1-2 min. But it's not working! She has peed when she was lying down, no warning. And last night, she actually peed ON ME. I don't know what I'm doing wrong and am almost at wits end. I don't think it would be so bad if she wasn't doing so well and then regressed so dramatically.
In the morning when I KNOW she has to pee, I put her a few steps away from the ugodog and nudge her in the right direction and she always goes in the right place.
Does anyone have any suggestions for me, please?? She is 3 1/2 months old, so yes, I know she is still young. But I just have a hard time believing that she peed on my lap - I was sitting on the ground so she could have easily gotten off.
Oh, I should add that she IS good about pooping. She will run across the room to poop on the ugodog. Why not pee?
