So I'm dogsitting for a family friend for the next two weeks. Since the puppy is not potty trained yet they did not want her staying at home; going all over the house; Or; being kenneled all day long. So anywho, I'm watching her, and trying to potty train her too. I'm more of a cat person, but I'm trying my hardest.
For awhile she was doing great; I would make her hit a bell on the bottom of the door whenever we were going outside to go potty; and give her a small piece of a dog treat when she would go; and i would praise, praise, praise. Also, when I bring her outside; and she doesn't go, I kennel her up for 10-15 minutes; and bring her out again; which worked before; but for some reason it isn't anymore. Now she is just acting up, I catch her in the act of going in the house; bring her outside; and she just tries to chew on everything. >< She continually poops in the same spot in the house, and it is just, irritating.
I've tried bringing newspaper outside; since that was what we used when she first arrived, and I just don't know what to do; Maybe those of you with more experience with dogs could give me some helpful advice.
It would be greatly appreciated.
