Arwen got her stitches out (dew claws) out and after a few extra days in the cone, left her feet alone while the stitch area healed. At the vet follow up, vet remarked at how well and how fast the spay area healed. She has been cone free for about a week and half. And her full puppy hyper activity levels have returned.
The issue we are having, and I am sure this is human error, is house training!!!!! I am in puppy potty hell! We go out. She pees and poops, but we come in and within a 1/2 hour, she has peed 3 times in the house. Poop is no better, just not as often. I was teaching her to ring a bell to go out. She picked up on that, but then it became a game. We'd come in, and she would instantly ring the bell. So we go out again. This goes on until Mom gets fed up and puts the bell out of reach. If she did something each time, when we went out, ok. But she just wants to play.
Vet says to start back at the beginning. Obviously, I failed at the beginning. I have been working on going pee and poop on command. I use "fee" & "trall" which are German for fairy and troll. I will explain why another time. She will actually pee on command about 3/4 of the time and poop about 1 out of every 5 times.
OK... HELP!!!!! I need specific, spelled out what to do steps. I will not have another dog not fully house trained.
