I've been working on training the fluffs to use pee pads instead of being outside trained and it's been going pretty good this time around. Right now i have two pens set up with a disposable pee pad in a tray so they can't tear it up and then a washable pee pad that covers the whole are that way if they miss the one there is the other. I put them in the are and set the timer for 15 minutes and if they have pooped then they can stay out if not back into their crate for 60 mintues and this is what we do all day and just rotate. My question is how do i get them to go into the potty area by themselves when they have to go? Instead they wait for the timer to go off and then i'll say ok Noelle lets get in the area. If they have to go before the timer goes off they will potty in the kitchen. There out because they pottied like they were supposed to and i try to keep an eye on them, but there are times i'm not apparently. Should i set the timer for less than 60 minutes? I'm not sure what to do and how to make it their idea to go in the designated area to go potty. They do well when placed in designated area , but just don't seem to get it that they can go in the area on their own to potty. We have been doing this going on three weeks now.
