Hi all, Just got my first puppy and I am very excited to start training. Andi is a Wheaten terrier right out of the litter, just over 8 weeks old. I was looking for some advice on potty training. I am training her using puppy pads just outside the back door on the deck (decided to not start off inside so, hopefully she learns inside is never ok). At first it seemed quite easy, I took her out and she went on the pad (I'd do a click/treat), then I would let her stroll around the deck for some exercise. However, now she seems feel like the rest of the desk is the best place in the world, and no longer seems interested in doing her business. She'll sit a few feet from the pad at the end of her leash and whine to go explore. If she doesn't go, I bring her back in after a few minutes. However, she'll often go on the floor inside 1 min later. It's seems like she has to go, but is too distracted outside. I had read contradictory advice of this issue. Some people said don't bring the dog right back in right away (because she'll learn as soon as I go, I get put back inside and learn to delay her business). Whereas others said, no fooling around, it's just about potty and then back in. I suppose each option can lead to a different kind of struggle. I wish I could go back in time and not introduce her to any other part of the deck...but, what's done is done. Any suggestions for getting her to focus on what she is doing and stop going inside?
