Hi all,
My daughter has Bearlas baby 1/2 sister, The problem is i got Bearla when she was approx 11 to 12 wks old, they got Misty at 6 months old. I had absolutely no problem housebreaking Bearla due to age and my own experience with GSD.

I have tried everything to help them housebreak this demon, and she just wont have anything to do with it. My son in law will take her for half hr walks and she will hold it until they get home and in the house. He takes her right back out and places her poop where they want her to go, my daughter has experienced the same thing. So have i.

Despite praise, treats, etc and even taking her out with my daughters Chihuhua or out with Bearla and our pit, Misty just will not have anything to do with it. I think she spent alot of her time in the puppy barn or kennel where she was born, but our breeder did have her in the house alot so im at a loss. She actually holds it. If my daughter goes out, she breaks out of her kennel and will leave a path of destruction and poop everywhere.

Misty is starting obedience training tonight, they are using parts of the amichen training and nilif but still this demon will go crazy unless her big sis is there to keep her in line.

any advice?

I'd rather be hated for who i am than loved for who im not. An old shoshoni saying about loosing someone you love, MY HEART IS ON THE GROUND, NOW I MUST PICK IT UP AND MOVE ON

Do they have her on a leash for the potty breaks. I got Raya at 8 months old and it took her a while to be comfortable enough to pee when give the command on leash, we are still working on the poo on leash on command.

Take her where she can run and play when it's potty time.

I've never seen a pup 'hold it' if they are exercised when it's time...

And find a crate she cannot escape. As long as she can find her own spot away from the crate, she'll do it.

Good luck.
