A friend of mine at work took possession of a 8 week old female Chihuahua x foxie which she is keeping for her mum for 6 months.
She has had the pup now for 2 months, is a great dog owner who cares very much for animals, the dog is mainly inside.
This little dog wees and poos EVERYWHERE all the time.
Apart from the floor, she poos in the car, in her water and food bowls, up the walls and more recently on a visitors foot.
My friend has always taken her out every half hour, and after I suggested she crate her at night and through the day when she cant watch her, she did so but as she is unable to afford a crate..used a cardboard box which was quickly shredded.
She is really trying very hard to train her by taking her out ALL the time and praising her when she does something, but she usually dosent and waits till she goes back inside.
Im not even sure if a crate will help as if she goes in her food bowl, she will have no qualms going in the crate which is what she did in the box.
I have never heard of a pup that poos up walls and in water and food bowls and wonder if anyone else has had a pup that does this, she is 4 months old now and its just getting worse.
She also has her own pup that is 8 months old and was perfectly toilet trained by almost 3 months old with very few accidents till then.
I wonder if anyone else has known a pup that has such discusting toilet manners?
