Hi. I wrote earlier about our new little girl and crating issues (no go there). We did doggie day care for about a week and a half. May have set ourselves up since there she could go whenever and wherever she wanted. Trying to housebreak her home now with her greyhound brother. Gable is awesome and knows the ropes. Annie keeps having accidents during the day despite having a dog walker come midday.

 

We walk at 5 am and another after bfast before I leave for work at 6:15. Dog walker comes at 11:30 ish and I am home by 4. Granted it has only been three days so I imagine there is a learning curve. Please tell me Annie will learn.....

Can you restrict the area she stays in? The smaller the area, the least likely she will be to make in it. It is only three days, so give her a chance.

 

With housebreaking, I like to take them out every two hours, then three, four etc, until we work up to a longer time frame. That being said, I am still working with a girl we have for two months now. I have found girls to be a little more difficult than boys. Maybe just in my house, but, that has been my experience.

I've had Brandi 3 years. She's still a problem. What has helped is eliminating UTIs, switching to raw which means she drinks less, giving her Vitamin B1, sometimes rescue remedy and lavender oil and being strict about schedules. Much of Brandi's is separation anxiety. We cope with it because she goes on tiles or a towel provided, it's only once a week if that now (down from twice a day) and she's adorable.

 

Also, make sure your girl is warm enough. Brandi needs to be rugged if it gets below 21 degrees C.

It is not too long a time--they certainly don't go out whenever they want while at the track!

 

If you haven't already had her checked by the vet, please do so. You need to rule out any medical issues such as a urinary tract infection!

 

And yes, confine her to a smaller space. Dogs will instinctively not soil their "den."
