I am up and bored and very excited about my new guy coming to live with us!! I need some helpful advice from some vets!!
You said Eli was potty trained at 6 months? So how long did you work with him? Wrigley came here at 9 weeks. He definitely does a good job holding his poopies but I must keep a belly band on him because he still isn't telling me when he needs to potty (I watch him and let him out every hour but if he decides he needs to go - he will start to squat and I'll need to say "no no" and then hurry him outside - which tells me that the concept hasn't completely sunk in yet). He is about 16 weeks now. Does that sound okay?
I don't think he had anyone working with his potty training before he came to me (I mean proactively).
I will say that he is very good about going potty outside when I let him out though. Always goes right away.
