I need help with potty training
I just got my little yorkie, Brodie, monday and when I got him the lady said that he was trained to use the pee pads. Well he won't use the bathroom on them now. Oh and the other day I left him in the bathroom for a couple of hours while I went to work and when I came home he had poop all over him and I couldn't figure out how he got it on his face....well today he pooped and as I was going to clean it up I noticed that he was trying to eat his poop!!! So what do I do???? How can I get him not to use the bathroom on the floor and use it on his pee pad..... and not to eat his poop while I'm gone?????

Welcome to YT! I have read a few times that if you put a little
crushed pineapple in with their food that it is suppose to make
it less appealing. I never had the problem though so I don't know
how the success rate is. Otherwise I have seen some that watch
the puppy like a hawk and when it goes poo they spray the bitter
apple spray on it and let them actually go for it and once they
have the negative taste experience they usually stop with that
bad habit. As far as potty training how old is your little one? You
have to understand that he is in an entirely different evironment
now and just because he was maybe potty pad trained at the
breeders house that mean nothing now. It takes patience, consistancy
and lots of love. Also if he is just a wee little guy you can't have
unreal expectations. It takes time...these babies are very cute
but they are a lot of work too. I know when we got Teddy I was
up with him every few hours taking him out just like he was a new
