I don't know if I was totally angry with anyone but just.... sad. It made me think about things that were painful. I'm always second guessing and when someone brings something up that I know isn't correct I still ponder that fact. I am more angry with myself than anything. I stopped on the way home and got scented puppy pads... the ones that are supposed to attract them to do their business on the pad. We shall see....
I also wanted to add that you CANNOT train a dog to go inside and outside easily. You should pick one. IF you are training her on puppy pads, its very confusing for her when you get mad that she has accidents inside.
The girl is utterly confused right now. I would stay away from the pads if I were you and just train her to only go outside.
Also, don't punish when she makes mistakes. Just re-direct. re-direct. Re-diRect! Rush her outside as soon as you catch her going...I wouldn't use NO either. Its too time consuming and confusing.
I use "ahhhhhhh" rush to pick her up and rush her outside RIGHT THEN!!!
She WILL get it if you follow this.
