I didn't want to spoil Dottie's birthday thread with a complaint! LOL! She is still far from being housebroken. I just don't understand it. I have two other small female dogs and I had no problems with them. I started her with crate training and she did fine when I took her outside, but still didn't seem to mind going in the house. When the warmer weather came I let her play outside more thinking that she would learn to prefer going out there. Well, instead she prefers going ON THE PATIO! Yep, right smack in the middle she will squat and pee and she poops everywhere on the patio too! To say that I am frustrated is an understatement. Anyone have any magical cures?
