Just brought home a seven-weeks old GR eight days ago. I'm trying to toilet-train her using the newspaper method. I even swabbed the top layer with her urine. It doesn't work even though I catch her in mid-stream and carry her over to the newspaper. She prefers to return to the same spot to poo and pee despite having used a few household cleaners/disinfectant to treat the spot.
I learnt that dogs will still be able to smell the scent of their poo/pee despite having cleaned the spot thoroughly. What's needed is an enzymatic cleaner such as Simple Solution's Stain & Odor Remover or Nature's Miracle.
Does anyone here know where I can get these locally? Perhaps something similar? I visited pet stores at Ikano, Taman Megah and MV-Mega Mall but couldn't find any. Appreciate some useful pointers. Thanks.
Hi, i'm not an expert on dog, i just have 1 precious one..., just want to share my experience with you, dog when they are young, they tends to do business everywhere, we need to be patient to their habbit :) ofcourse training is still needed but when they grow up (about 1 yr old), they will automatically potty trained. taking care of puppy just like taking care of a baby :) just treat them like a baby, then u will be more patient :) good luck
