Hi! I adopted a two-year-old shihtzu mix two week ago, and we're having some big potty issues with her.
First, she won't pee unless she's completely alone, making it impossible to reward her when she does her business where she should. I have the feeling she was probably treated poorly when she relieved herself in her previous home, and I have no idea how to fix this.
Second, we're letting her outside every so number of hours in hopes of preventing an accident, but she just stands by the door the whole time and waits until we let her back inside without doing anything. Instead, she goes in the middle of the night in the house.
And tips as to how to fix this???
