I just adopted a beautiful female EB from a good friend of mine. This is the first dog in my total care in ten years. She is very laid back and wonderfully tamed. There is just one problem I am facing, she is four years old, two of those four she has been outside in a large pen with her brothers. But now she will be mainly an inside dog, so now I face the prospect of poo poo training. I am looking for some tips and advice.

Thank you :)

I'd just start from scratch with her...restrict her living space, take her out to her designated potty area after naps and shortly after meals...lots of praise...etc.

...hopefully, since I'm assuming she was housebroken at the beginning, it won't take her as long to 'remember' what's up...

Pictures?

one thing people got to remember dogs dont want to poop or pee indoors they relay dont just keep an eye on her and look for signs of her asking to go out youll catch on faster than she will let her tranin you :wink:

So you dont see her age being a factor for retraining her?
I think it could be an issue. Puppies are probably easier to housebreak that an adult dog, but it can be done. My only suggestion is consistancy. Take her outside every twenty minutes and praise her like there's no tomarrow when she does her business outside. If you catch her in the act inside, give her a stern "No!" and right outside. If she makes a mess in the house and you didn't see her do it, save your breath. Clean it up and move on. Be sure to clean the spots with a good cleaner to get rid if the smwll or she may continue to use that spot. Natures Miracle is good.

Best of luck, she's adorable! :D

Actually, she really looks like she is enjoying the comforts of your home.
IF she is laid back, then she is napping alot. When she wakes up,
immediately, ASAP, no pit stops, take her outside. It will not take too
long for her to get the idea. She is a cutie - Good Luck.
:D

THanks for all the advice. I have been doing that, she is a smart dog and I think she is picking up on it. It is more me then her on getting MY act together and not confusing her with what I want. Only problem now is I am working and I am leaving her alone about up to four hour in the morning (luch) four hours in the late afternoon until I get home, but I think we will work it out she is not rebelious. I have her in my guest bathroom (not crated) with a childrens gate, hopefully once we get our scheduale down we will be fine.

i once heard if a dog is an outside dog, and then becomes an inside dog, the dog will usually hold it for as long as he can before he goes in the house.

actually, that was the only way i could train my rottie pup (she's now 11) ..... after 3 months of always cleaning up after her, i stuck her butt outside for about a week, and have never had a problem since.... knock on wood.

wow, i can't believe my Roxy girl is 11 years old :shock: man does time fly
