    Default Afraid of go to the backyard at night!!!

    Hi,
    My pup Lia, 9 weeks old, is potty trained in the backyard, but at night she's afraid to go outside to pee. She is a little bit afraid when playing outside and pees inside at the door.
    How can I manage that?
    (she can't go at the street because of her vaccinations)

    go outside with her. She's so young!! At this stage you should really be going outside with her and praising her every single time she's gone potty immediately when she squats. Good Luck!

    We had to get a security light put up that was strong enough to light the whole garden. Before this Murphy would just stand and bark at nothing!

    He started to toilet in the house about that time so we're having to start training all over again. He is a big chicken really

    My guys will sit and stare out the doggie door if I've forgotten to turn on the outside light. Neither of them will go out in the dark.

    I was having the same problem. It was quite funny actually because I couldn't figure out why the boys wouldn't venture into the back yard in the evening. One night when Cody was having the runs, I was up at 4 am to take him out to prevent a major mess in the crate. At the same time my fiancee apparently went to the bathroom and turned the light on, it light up the whole backyard because a window faces that direction!!! Cody rushed right out and did his business. Now every time I take them out at night I just turn all the lights in the house on

    It would probably just be easier to get outdoor lighting installed, but hey. We just moved in!!
    I love my Wesley, Cody, Zoey & Stewie
