My 7 month old Isabelle is pretty much potty trained. I mean that in the sense she doesn't have freedom when we aren't home (she's in her crate, but never potties in there), but when we are home the accidents are only once or twice a week on the carpet (I do use Nature's Miracle so her accidnets are never in the same spot). I believe the accidents she has are while we are sleeping or in a loud room and we can't hear her hit the windchimes we hung on the door for her. We've tried training her to bark before she goes out, but can't get her to pick up on that. She's not much of a barker unless she's in serious play mode. Does anyone have any suggestions? I want to try getting this downpat before the new puppy joins our household in 2 1/2 months.
