Help with house training and Barking!
I am so frustrated at this point. Rosie was doing well at some point but lately she pees and poops all over the house. She has the indoor doggie potty with the grass and did excellent with that. Now it's like she doesn't care. She could be right next to it and still pee on the floor. I can't take it anymore. I take her for walks, she's allowed outside, etc and she's still a hot mess when it comes to house breaking her.
Also the barking. Anytime she's in her crate she starts barking. She barks to be let out, but I try not to let her out so she doesn't think she'll get her way each time, but sometimes its so much that I just cave and let her out so she'll shut up. I tried the spraying her with water and saying quiet and that doesn't work much.
She had her spay surgery 1.5 weeks ago so maybe that's put her out of whack. But I'm out of patience and ideas.

I really don't have any advice as I am having the same problem. Gideon is confined to the kitchen and 1/2 bath and uses the potty pad when confined. But when I let him out he thinks the whole carpet is his potty pad,
I do make a point of praising and giving him Scoobie snacks, (Blue buffalo blue bits treats) Gradually he makes his way to the potty pad while he is not confined and we go a day or two without issue then it starts all over again. I'm hoping warm weather will help. He is so darn fast too. It's a done deal, you think you have been watching their every move then bam, where did that that pee spot come from. LOL. He sure keeps me busy.

When doing research I found that almost all small breed dogs are apparently difficult to potty train, and Yorkies is at the top of the list as that being true. For some reason they are said to be among the hardest to train.I think anyone who gets one, and does their research, should be aware they may have difficulties with it when getting one, and expect it.
dont get me wrong, im not criticizing you at all, especially when she was doing so good for so long at first. Im just saying its a fact according to my research anyway, that people out there, if they want a dog that is easy to potty train, shouldn't get a yorkie......lol. But if anyone knows what to do, im sure someone on here will. their is a lot of knowledgeable people here . Im sure someone will have some ideas. My pup is only 7 weeks old. were working on it, but im expecting a big fight.
