Hello, everyone.. I just got my first dog, a siberian husky. His name is Nicky. Just got him like a week before. He's around 2mths old. Now the major problem is the pee and poo problem.
Need some advice here!!
He is confined to my house's kitchen area(indoor). So, what i planned is to train the fella to do his stuff on the newspaper. So, i put the newspaper at a spot for him to pee and poo. In the 2nd day, the fella managed to pee on the newspaper and i quickly praised him for his good job. I think he got what i meant so, for the subsequent few times, he managed to do his job there. But that lasted only for like 1 day,after that the fella continued to pee and poo everywhere.
So, now i have to place newspapers on a few major spots that he has peed and pooed before, hoping that he will do it on the newspaper but he seemed to do it everywhere. Now i have to place the newspaper on 3 spots. Sometimes he managed to get to it, sometimes not. I tried to praise the fella again when he succesfully got the correct spot, but that didn't work quite well. He still do it everywhere.
I read the few threads on toilet training, they said that it will poo after they wake up, 1/2 hr after their meal and before they sleep.. but mine is quite different. That day after i gave the fella his lunch, i stayed beside him for like a few hours, but the fella still din poo.. After i left then only the fella pooed.. and its kind of like dinner time d... I tried to bring the fella for a walk after meal, but still he prefers to do his stuff after the walk. How do i make him to poo during his walk? (There's a backlane behind my house, so i always take him to walk there)
I planned to buy those spray where it can cleans away the odour on the floor. Is that effective??
