You must have patience. She will get it <a href="http://adzunlicbb.com">evlltuaney</a>. Try not to clean up her accidents when she is near in nature the mom cleans up the litter area, so she will think wherever you clean-up is okay to go. Take her for a walk after she exercises or eats(wait a while to see how long it takes for activity to bring on pee pee) then, time it so that you naturally have her out when she goes so that you can give lots of positive reinforcement.

You must take her out at the same time each day. Have you tried keeping her in a crate and then taikng her out to potty? I found a spray that I would use on the sidewalk and when I took her out she would do it there. If she remains in a crate all day, when you get home, you take her outside and stay with her until she does and then reward her (Good Girl) and let her inside again. This takes time, it will not happen right away. The puppy training pad I used ended up torn up by my other dog who thought they were to play with. But it has to be continuous training until she gets it. You must also get rid of the scent she has produced where she potties each time and there are lots of product to get rid of it. (visit petsmart or petsupermarket). Crate training is very successful but you must take her out for a walk immediately after taikng her out of the crate so she is aware that this will happen each time. Make the going outside a good experience so she will look forward to it. But do not give up on her and take her to a shelter too many are left there by owners who have given up on their pets ..when getting a new puppy, one must know of the responsibility that comes with this and be able to handle it. Seek professional help, if necessary. Good luck. http://akrgsmn.com [url=http://lnrzgma.com]lnrzgma[/url] [link=http://mteayztub.com]mteayztub[/link]

LOL, funny. I have three kids and one on the way in six years - I hardly know what a <a href="http://gnacklo.com">peroid</a> is, especially with breastfeeding. I will be using these as backup under some other pads after the birth because for me, postnatal is a terrible affair. I used cloth with my first and have to say it wasn't bad. She never got diaper rash and she was quick to potty train. My other two (especially my son) are fighting me on the issue so I wish I had used them the last two times.

I was one of the people who requested a free sample of the product and was satisfied with it. Purity 12 is so far the best I've ever tried. I strongly recommend it.
