Training Adult Rescue Dog to Poop or Pee Outdoors
I brought home a spayed female 2.5 year old Beagle/Mountain Feist mix 7 days ago; she was a stray -- thin, but otherwise in pretty good shape when they found her. She is extraordinarily loveable (typical for Mountain Feists) and clingy. She peed a little on the rug the first day; I did not scold her, merely took her outdoors. After a 20-minute walk where other dogs have marked, she peed a little more. I drove her to the dog park where she peed a QUART (she's 20 lbs) and pooped. Next day, despite frequent long walks, nothing. In the evening, I took her to dog park; pee and poop in abundance. Have purchased pee sticks; nothing. She is not peeing or pooping in the house -- just "holding it." Suggestions, please. Thank you.
