Potty training my baby yorkie!
I have been training my puppy and myself to know when she has to go
potty! I am learning her potty signs
She sticks her little tongue out when she has to go potty.....and she runs around with this little tongue out....as if to say where do I go
so I immediately show her by taking her to her wee pads and she goes potty!
I give her lots of praise on her job well done
I have also learned to take her in the small bathroom and I shut the bathroom door with just her and me in the bathroom and she wonders around then finally goes potty.
I just stand still in one spot quietly untill she is done going potty. I give her praise each time she goes potty
This way she does not have full roam of the house at potty time.
This will work best for our harsh cold winters using the bathroom
for potty time.
she is so adorable!

What worked for me was feeding him at exactly the same time every day.. I set up an alarm on my phone to ring 10 before 7am and 10 before 7pm. "Culantro" started pupping and peeing right around those times and I moved him to the potty pad and praise him a lot! a lot A LOT!.. me and my wife would make a 5 minute celebration every time he did.
Is very confortable for all of us because we walk him not out of necessity but for pure joy. We still walk him almost everyday...
here is a picture of his little bathroom.
I bought wide short rubbermaid plastic container at walmart ($11.00), cut the edge on the front, and also I bought a screen for ceiling florescent lights at the home depot ($6.00) and cut it with scissors so that when he pees the hair around his feet won't get wet..
