Re-house training a 3 year old dog
I recently moved from a house to an apartment which has no backyard (we are upstairs with just a balcony) and my dog, who has lived in a house with a backyard her whole life-she's 3.5 years old, is having difficulty knowing where to go to the bathroom.
I tried buying sod (live grass) for her to use, bought a "potty patch" (fake grass), and tried walking her in the mornings and nights when I know she has to go. Thing is, she has never gone to the bathroom on walks before. This has never been a problem due to the fact that she would always just use the backyard as a potty.
Any ideas on how to solve this? I've tried the pheromone sprays and nothing seems to work. She's a Pomeranian mix, about 11 pounds.
ANY help would be appreciated. She keeps pooping in the living room and my roommate is not happy.
