A person i was talking to recommended "housetraining pads" and i went to my local garden centre and i found them. I just wanted to mention them here because they work wonders!
You all know i'm having a hard time housetraining little Louie and these pads come with a special scent to attract the dogs. They are plastic squares with tissue-like stuff in the middle so the pee doesn't seep through to the ground. My mother is so relieved!!
You do the same as you do with newspaper - gradually move towards the door. But i went out for a while after putting it down and when i came home i was shocked!! Louie went on the pad !!
