Apartment Potty Training to go OUTSIDE
I am new to this wonderful website, forum and new to a sweet little Dobie named Miya Grace. I got her from a loving family who made their home... in a house! I make my home, on the 28th floor of a high-rise lol very different situation indeed! I have been trying to get Miya to understand that we go "POTTY," outside. She seems to be doing well during the day, she has a patch of grass outside the building where she likes to go and will take me there ( when she wants to move, rather than sit or lay down and watch the people/cars ) but I am finding at night it is becoming rather difficult.
I was told it is best to stop all liquid around 7-8pm, her dinner is usally given around 5-6pm. I try my best to keep my prosethic leg on and take her out for one last potty before bedtime around 10/11? I am finding that being, 10 weeks tomorrow, she still gets me up a handful of times during the night, which is fine! If I dont pick her up from her crate and carry her out to the elevator to outside (only at night) she will squat and start to pee in the hallway.
Does anyone have any advice on this? I am concerend how much longer I will be able to carry her for the fact she is growing quite rapidly :) Does anyone else make their home in an apartment and has to deal with going and waiting for an elevator / lobby before one can make it OUTSIDE?
