Hello, I have an 8 week old Jack Russell puppy and she is really doing well since she moved in with me a few days ago. I have made her a den inside and she can walk out to the laundry where I have her food & water. I also have a dirt box further away so she can go to the toilet.
I have been lucky to be able to catch her sniffing etc before she goes to the toilet and I take her to her box or outside. Occasionally I miss her and she might wee in the wrong spot (inside).
I don't expect her to be house trained properly for sometime yet and I think she is doing well so far but I do have a problem when I take her outside to do a pooh. I decided I don't want her poohing all over the place so I picked a spot outside on the lawn and scooped up all her previous poohs and placed them all there and some sand from garden. The first couple of times I took her there it was fine and she will still wee there no problems but now she refuses to pooh there anymore. It seems she wants to pooh in a different spot each time.
I would appreciate any help on how to train her to pooh in one spot. I praise her when she poohs or wees in the right spot but if in another spot I just don't do anything, I don't scold her or even say "No" as I don't want to scare her.
