I have a 9 week old Beagle named Bella and I have had her for nearly two weeks now.
When we got her from the Breeder she was grass trained but because we have a big backyard, I'm not comfortable to let her outside by herself until she is bigger. We have two litter trays with puppy pads and newspaper in it, one in our bedroom, one in our rumpus (we share with other people so these are the only areas in teh house she can go unsupervised). She rarely goes into the trays, even when we put her scent on tissues in there. and when she starts to get in the habit she loses it when i change the newspaper. I want to get her in the habit quick, because she is pretty smart.
a second issue is that she bites a lot. i know she is teething and she has toys she can chew on but i can't hold her any more and have to watch her with my niece and nephew that i live with whenever they want to pat her. she also bites at our other pet (we actually think she learnt off the other pet first) and its starting to pee her off. my hands are getting covered in scratches from her and i need my hands because i work in a jewellery store where your hands are used to display items from time to time.
She wakes up at 5am! both her and the other pet sleep in our bedroom on their own bed, but she wakes up at 5am whinging. My partner works shift work and I have university as well as a job so we enjoy our sleep. We have tried to put both animals in the rumpus, but they whinge when we shut the door on them of a night time. We put enya on and even put a heater in there on low. they have a hot water bottle in bed too so they're a tad spoilt in that sense.
I just want to sleep, and make sure that my dog doesn't bite me when I toilet train her. I can't afford to take her to a puppy obedience school just yet.
