Help! I have a seven month old puppy who I have had for almost three months. When I first got her I took her out every two hours to see if she had to go to the bathroom. After a while I started taking her out at longer and longer intervals and she seemed to do fine. We would have the occasional accident in the house but that was to be expected. I never punished her, simply cleaned it up. when she goes outside I praise her and reward her, but sometimes when I take her out she sniffs around and then just sits down at my side. I figure she doesn't have to go so we go back inside. About 10 minutes later I find presents. I have tried to enforce the potty on command by saying go potty whenever she is going but it hasnt seemed to help. I would think that by now she would know where to go to the bathroom and ask to go out. What am I doing wrong? She is also crate trained and will not go in her crate so obviously the instinct is there. Please please help!
