I've got a 14 week old Poodle puppy, I've had her for about a week. The breeder said that she was used to going on newspaper, and when I brought her home I put a puppy pad down along with some newspaper in my room (where she sleeps). Ideally I want her to go to the toilet outside - which is always accessible, but I am not quite sure how to get there. She'll go to the toilet a few of the times I take her out a day, but occasionally she'll go on the puppy pee pad, or worse, in my flatmates room.
I'm wondering what to do, I need to watch her more, I know that, but is having a pee pad inside actually working against me by allowing her somewhere to go inside? Should I just change this to outside only? She doesn't go to the toilet at night, only in the morning and a few times during the day, so I could just take her out more often, and keep a closer eye on her. What do people recommend?
My flatmate seems to think that I can show her where she went to the toilet and get cross at her and take her outside, but I don't think she would understand this and don't think this is a good way to do it, what is right?
