Help me please! My 2 year old Yorkie is completely pee pad trained ó when Iím home. When I go to work she doesnít bother getting even close to the pee pad (can see her on camera). I work and wouldnít mind kenneling her while Iím gone but she would need to be kenneled at night while we are sleeping too. I donít want her in a kennel 17 hours a day! What can I do? Please help!

A kennel is the best option or limiting her to a very small room.

Can you gate her in a small area in the home? I keep mine in the kitchen and they are very comfortable.
I tried kenneling when I first got Thumper but he and his brother would pee in the crate. I found they preferred to be gated where they had some room to roam but not the entire apartment.
I find my two dogs will revenge pee when I step away from the apartment (like when I go to the laundry room or take the garbage outside)
Also I find that they are calmer when they are together. If I take one to the vet by themselves they are not happy and will pee and poop away from the pads. They need to be together and they are fine.

These little guys have minds of their own. When they're happy, they're very happy but when they're not happy WATCH OUT.

I have to agree with aweitzm1 in gating them in a small room perhaps the kitchen, I don't like closing them in a bathroom tho.

I agree with aweitzm1 as well. Providing dogs with a small area will be better than closing them in a kennel or cage that is small to stretch their legs. What's more, Yorkies are always energetic and need a large amount of exercise every day. So, I housebroke my pup and don't close him within the fence after training.

I agree with everyone else... gate in a small area, either a room or you can use a corner of a room with an x-pen or baby gates.
