Question by 2474jav: My little yorkie, “sidda” won't potty train!?
Sidda is just over 3 yrs old and we for the life of us, cannot get her to consistantly “go” outside. I work from home so I let her out every 1 1/2 hrs…sometime she goes, sometimes she doesn't. It could be beautiful, rainy, or snowy and it depends on if “she” feels like going. She'll stay out for 20-30 min. running around chasing birds and then come right in and go on the carpet! I am starting to resent her a bit. My carpet smells and I have tried the potty pads…no good. I have tried treats…no good. I tried a cage..no good, altough someone told me the cage might be a little big for her (She went in there too!) I've checked with the vet and their are not problems there, I have no clue what to do and I am considering selling her but we have grown to love her but now, like I said, we are resenting her and not paying as much attention to her because we're mad at her. Please help! Thanks

ok first remember she is a dog. a dog who's breed is nortorious for being hard to housetrain, because 1. of their small bladders 2. of their stubborn terrior nature.
but nip the resentment in the bud now, or she WILL pick up on the negative hormones you give off-dogs can smell them. and it may make her urinate more because she has NO clue why she's making you mad, and she'll “submit” by urinating on your rug more.
get a potty spot for her inside the house, this is what alot of yorkie owners have to resort to. it's like a cat using a litter box, but this is a special mat for dogs like yours. there are sprays you can buy to help her go on that mat only.
oh and if she's peeing in the cage, stop it now, the whole purpose of cratetraining is to teach a dog how to hold their bladders and if they learn going in there is fine then you have no hope if you want to try again in the future.
first teach her how to just go to her “potty spot” on the mat. tell her to go every 3 hours at first. but a yorkies bladder is not able to hold it long. your best bet esp if you are not home all day with her, is just get the special potty place inside for her.
