@Tahli to toilet train mine I used to bring them outside every two hours on a lead to the same spot and give them a code word/phrase. I used to say do your puddles. Give them praise if they do and ignore them if they don't. Not like ignore them in a mean way but just don't react. Eventually we go to the stage where we would open the door and say do your puddles and they would run out and wee. If they wee in the house ignore them, don't let them see you cleaning it and use diluted laundry liquid. When dry I used to sprinkle area with soda bicarbonate.
I want a doggie!! 🐶
