Can someone please help me teach my 2 year old Jack Russell to use a Potty Patch? We travel with my boyfriend and currently, we are staying in the apartment side of a downtown hotel in a pretty big town that I am unfamiliar with. the only area where I can take my dog is 2 blocks over, in a church front lawn. however, at night, I refuse to put myself and my dog in a bad situation. so I bought her a Potty Patch from Petco, and placed it out in the parking garage beside our vehicle and take her there to potty. but she refuses to use it. after a week, I just now taught her that she doesn't have to be scared of it so she now finally will at least sit on it. I have also bought the training spray but that just seemed to make things worse. i've tried taking her out there, placing her on it, telling her to go potty, and since she doesn't potty, I bring her back in, place her in her crate, wait a half hour, and repeat the process and nothing!!!!! she will wait until I have to step out the door for a second or use the bathroom, or whatever, then she will go. I am hoping someone can advise me on how to get her to use the bathroom on the Potty Patch. I tried looking it up online but it seems that most of the posts are sarcastic and hateful with no help. i'm not irresponsible pet owner, i'm an over protective doggie momma that refuses to put my dog and I in harms way. i've been told my numerous people to not go out at night alone. however, the place where I keep the potty patch, out in the parking garage is close by, well lit and camera protected. so i'm in desperate need of some help because i'm tired of cleaning up messes and want my dog to be as comfortable as possible.
