    Hey everyone!
    Sorry I haven't posted in a while! I'm so tired! This schedule is zapping me of any energy I have.

    Anyways,
    I need some help. I've housetrained dogs before and I am close to it with Hazel, but for some reason in the morning when I let her out to go to the bathroom it takes her like 10-30 minutes before she'll go #2. She doesn't pee in the house. I try to get her to go #2 before I leave because otherwise she will poop in the house. She just stands on the concrete and stares at me defiantly. I don't really understand. I don't have a lot of time in the morning. I have to leave for work at 3 am and I get up at 2:20 to 2:30 just to give her time to go. I've never had this much trouble before. How hard is it really? It isn't supposed to be this annoying. Grr...

    I am probably going to get a crate Friday if I can't get this taken care of.

    Any suggestions would be helpful.

    Thea

    Give her about 5-15 minutes of hard play before you take her out. Sometimes it just takes some stimulation for a pup to have to go. She'll also be worn out some and will nap better while you're gone - that much less time to get into mischief!

    Now, I'll give you three guesses as to how I know this! ROFL

    I agree with Renee,if we have a good play with Murphy(13 weeks) and then let him out he goes quite quickly.Mind you to be honest he has not had a single poo inside since we have had him.

    Good Luck
