I picked up my puppy 2 days ago and its been really stressful time for us and the dog.
Based on the advise we were given, we were told to keep him in the bathroom until he is toilet trained. We used one of those scented pads which the dog used properly for the first day and a half.
We would praise him everytime he used it. Now however he seems to not use it, but use any space in the bathroom except the pad. I've gone into the bathroom to catch him just sitting there on the pad. So for some reason he thinks that its his place to sit now.
Also the dog seems to be okay at night, I try to wear him out so that he sleeps through, but wakes up crying around 6:00am.
He is suffering a fair amount of seperation anxiety (to the point where I cant even lock him in the bathroom) - he is now just running out the second I try to close the door. Which is sad because thats where his bed is (for now).
Anyway advise will be greatly appreciated.
