I am having some trouble toilet training my pup.
we have indoor cats so we cant leave a door open for her to get in and out which i figure would make the process easier.
She is mainly an outdoor dog but every time we let her in the first thing she does is pee. I have tried making loud noises to distract her from doing it in order to take her back outside to pee, but she is not distracted by loud or strange sounds. when she is inside i take her out every 45 mins to pee, she runs around the back yard for 1/2 hour and doesnt pee, she just waits till we are back inside and lets rip.
I have been using strong deoderisoers and disinfectants on the spots that she has peed to stop her from going back to the same place in the house.
I have tryed using puppy training pads inside the house and used smelly stuff on the pads that are meant to attract her to peeing on them but she ignores them.
I refuse to be agressive in training her as i dont believe in hiting her or rubbing her nose in it as some have suggested as i think that is just plain wrong, she is a pup and doesnt understand, if she is not learning what to do then i know it is me doing something wrong. HELP.
