This is how I start training a puppy after they eat or wake up from a nap you take her to the piddle pad and give lots of praise when she gos. They also seem to need to pee when they get cold. Be patient she will get it. How close is her pad? If it's too far away she might be scared at night to go that far. If she is locked in the crate at night she just might not be able to hold it their little bladders are still small so you may want to get up a couple times at night to let her go.

I have to pee on a cold every night though I don't want to get up.........DH will knock you down in the mornings to get to the toilet........he will also huddle up in a cold ball and let you and he freeze to death but you will get no blanket in the night...........once he's asleep.........that's it..............you're on your own...........so is he........but he just adjusts..........

Has a dog with Parvo been in your yard? We had a dog that died of Parvo, and when we got another dog the vet said to wash the whole area down with bleach. If no dog with Parvo (that you know of) has ever been out there, and your puppy has started on her shots, I would think it would be okay. You should ask your vet about that. I do know that Parvo is a terrible way to die, so it is good you are taking precautions.

I would agree with Barbara. It is parks/doggie parks that you would want to avoid until all vaccs have been administered. Your back yard should be safe. Now a front yard might be a different story.

No Barb. No dog has been out there except for our dalmation we had over 2 years ago. She didn't have Parvo. I just read that Parvo lives in the grass and dirt and I'm terrified that Sam will contact it as she's been quite weak at the start. She goes for her second Parvo vaccines this Friday so I'll check with the Vet then. Thanks. In the meantime, I'm putting pads all over the floor but she keeps missing them. Argh!

The supplemental food she eats makes her go and go all day. I tried giving her the dry food a couple of times daily and that worked okay. There were not too many accidents. I hope the vet takes her off the supplemental stuff~it's expensive, smells nasty and gross to clean up.

I'm a germaphobic so I'm trying to deal with this as patiently as I can. Sigh!
