We rescued out adult aussie/husky mix, Remmy, from the pound last weedend and we soon figured out she wasn’t potty trained yet. So, I read through my dog training book and searched on the internet, and came up with this “crate training method”. My dad bought her a good sized crate and this is the first day of crate training.
What the book told us to do it keep her in the crate throughout the day, exept for letting her outside every hour. (I take her on a long walk everyday after school too) When she eliminates outside I praise her and give her a treat. Then I take her back in the crate. I’ve been keeping track of the times she’s peed/pooped outside today and I will do this everyday this week until I can see a pattern and predict when she normally goes. If I keep this normal schedule up how long do you think this training will last until she has become potty trained?
Also, she has this problem whenever she gets excited (like when I wake her up in the morning or when I come home from school) a few drops of pee lands on the floor. Can potty training stop this too or is it a different problem?
