Help on Paper Training PLEASE!
I recently adopted a six year old mini dachshund, whom I was told was paper-trained. I have been closing her off in the kitchen area each day while I am away, leaving her bed, food, and a wee wee pad in there with her. When enclosed in the kitchen, she goes on the pad 100% of the time. However, whenever I let her out of the kitchen for exercise or what not, she does her business elsewhere, instead of returning to the kitchen to go. She does this the very minute I look away. I have been trying to train her by allowing her to sniff the mistake and then placing her on the pad, but now if she goes elsewhere, she just runs back to the pad, as if that was what I was trying to get her to do. Any ideas? I prefer paper training as I do not have an enclosed yard.. and she is also very afraid of the outdoors...
