    Default Any Suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

    Fiona has house training down as she is now 15 months old. i got her when she was 6 months old and had to start house breaking her. My problem is that she stands in front of the the front door and if I don't see her, she does her thing right infront of the door. i can't put in a doggie door. If I see her, I let her out and she goes on our lawn and I still praise her and throw her a party. But if I am in the kitchen or the back room, she just stands there in front of the door until she can't hold it. She won't bark or anything. But she does bark and tries to talk to me, when she wants to play. I am frustrated. I do let her out and walk her 15 minutes after her breakfast and dinner.... Any suggestions will be so welcomed!

    This is gonna sound crazy, but it worked w/my Bella. I tied a bell on a string & placed it on the doorknob. When we would go potty I would ring the bell, and eventually Bella learned to paw at the bell when she needed to go. I had to use enough string so she could reach the bell. Good luck...

    Hi I would suggest potty bells http://www.petco.com/product/117413/...t=OnSiteSearch . You can teach her to paw the bell when she wants to go out. That would be my best suggestion. If you have a rug by the front door and she has peed on it make sure to use something like Natures Miracle to clean or remove completely until she has learned to use the bells.
