I brought home a 3.5-year-old female named Penny about a week ago. She was raised at the breeder's farm and has had three litters already. She is now spayed and seems to have been adjusting well to her new suburban life. The breeder told me she was "crate trained," but I need advice on how to train her to potty outside. Right now she ONLY pees in her bed. Whatever bed I provide her, whether it's a round "upholstered" dog bed or the pad in her crate at night, she pees on it. The ONLY thing she doesn't pee on is a folded bath mat she sometimes rests on in the den. While I've gated it so she's mostly in a tiled den/kitchen and she's not just randomly going all over the house, she even peed in her car seat. I've tried retraining her by placing a pee rag outside and leading her to it, but she never does anything. On short walks she will sniff around but never squats. She has pooped outside successfully when I left her in the small fenced area immediately after eating. I took her on the third day here to the vet for a check-up, and he said she looks great. Tests all came back normal. She's been such a sweet dog. I would appreciate any advice on what I should be doing to help her change her habits to go when she's outside.
