I let her out more times than I can count! LOL! I let her out after eating, playing, and any time I see her at the door. I let her out at least once an hour. The problem has been when I am not at home and she is in her kennel. I ended up putting a partition in her kennel to make it smaller and she has been fine. I thought I was being punished for a few days there! But she is doing just fine.
