I have 2 Chihuahua, 1 male 2years, 1 female 11 months.
We have recently moved to an apartment and we are trying to toilet train them as indoor dogs.
we try and take them out 3-4 times per day, once first thing in the morning, once at midday, once in the afternoon and once before bed.
when inside, we have been getting them to use wee pads until we sort out a proper solution (have a porch potty type thing they are yet to use)
the female is good with the wee pads, she will use it 90% of the time.
the male usually holds it in to go outside, but when he does decide to use the wee mats because he cocks his leg it goes on the wall which is not ideal at all as it will ruin the surface over time.
what do people with apartment dogs to do deal with dog cocking leg against things? obviously outdoor is the ideal option but i need an option for them to do inside.
also I have a pet loo, how do i encourage them to use it rather than mats?
