Do any of you pet owners have any tips? I live on the 7th floor in downtown of a big city. And when I was housebreaking my puppy, she couldn't make it down 7 floors to go to the bathroom, and the elevator is on the opposite end of the building. So she started peeing in the carpeted hallways of the building because she couldnt make it. So obviously that didn't work.
All manner of puppy pads failed, as did those spray that are supposed to attract them to pee on. I tried those doggie litter boxes, but she thinks the pellets are dog food and tries to eat it.
The solution I worked out: she was trained to go to the bathroom on my large cement balcony. And so I've been cleaning it up every since. And she STILL can't make it down all the floors, but at least now she'll go int he elevator (!!!!) or in the parking garage.
Now that she's a year and a half old, I'd like to try to work out another solution, but I dont really know what or how.
Is it harder to re-train an older dog? Do any of you live in similar conditions? What is your solution?
