My DSD moved in with us the first of the summer. She brought her small dog with her. Before DSD moved here, Nilla had not had any structure whatsoever. She was left alone all day and sometime until late at night, or my DSD would take the dog with her where ever she was going. When DSD was at home I really do not believe she worked with Nilla. DSD used these puppy pads for the Nilla to use (DSD said that Nilla would use them for peeing but not pooing). I think Nilla is about 6 to 8 months old, part yorkie and pom. I have not house trained a dog in many years, and when I did it was with a new puppy and i took about a week off work to do this (usually crate training). I have asked DSD to research housebreaking and to get some structure in Nilla's life, well it is not happening. DSD will be going off to college and I need to get Nilla housebroken. Please give me any of your tricks, advice, anything to help me get this problem under control. I really like Nilla and have grown very fond of her and do not want to have to rehome her. My DH's advice is to put her in a kennel outside.
