I love my yorkie and all but she makes little messes around the house.She goes outside, but as a puppy,her previous owner let her go around the house on newspapers.We have tried to train her and for about a week she was good but she went back to her usual bad habits.What should I do? Please respond. Thanks!

Confine and contain. I would start over from scratch as though she was a new puppy. Freedom in the house is an earned privilege. Mine still don't have free access to the house when I am not home. I don't want them to hide an accident and me not catch them in the act. Illness is a different story of course.

I pad trained my puppy. When I first got her it was horrible I couldn't keep her on the pad and I had to sat with her until she used the pad and she would still jump over me and run all around the house. So I finally bought a babygate for $9 at walmart and locked off a corner in my apt. And I would put her in it every hour and let her stay there until she pee or poop. When I couldn't watch her I would put her in her crate. If she been in her crate for 2 hours I would then take her to her pad until she uses it. And at night also I put her in her crate, say I go to bed at 10:30pm I would get up at 12am and put her on her pad...and then put her back in the crate after she uses it. She finally got the hang of it. It took me about 2 months because I also work so I couldnt stay home all day and train her. But I got her when she was 1 month old now she is 3 months almost 4, and I can now leave her wandering around the house and she go to the pad by herself, but make sure you give her a treat EVERY time she uses the pad and say GOOD BOY/GIRL...It works

I agree with MikaTallulah... also, feeding on a schedule is helpful too (if you aren't already )
