I got a 6 months old Maltese and he has been with me for about a month. I am in the process of paper train him. I know it is a bit "old" to housetrain him and it needs more time and patient but I sometimes feel like "throwing" him away for his pee/poo problem :-(
I set his feeding time to to 6.30am and 6.30pm. He seldom poos after the meal. He poo in the midnight ! I caught him poo /pee at around 4am.. gosh... Shouldn't he be sleeping ???
What should I do to make him pees/poos in a much "normal" time? Help !
I place him on the newspaper in the fenced area whenever I saw him sniffing around or in the act of digging the floor. I use the command 'pee pee porty' and 'poo poo porty' each time I place him there. Sometimes he does pee and poo on the paper BUT most of the time he just lay down and sleep on the paper... Can I stop him sleeping on the paper as the paper is supposed to be his toilet ! How should I do that ?
