Puppy peeing in garage

August 24th, 2010, 10:41 AM
I have a mixed breed puppy :pawprint: that is 8 months old and I had her 98% potty trained and we moved to a new house. At our old house she had a doggie door that went straight outside. Now at the new house it goes into the garage where she can go through a man door to get out. The problem is she keeps peeing and pooping in the garage. She rarely has accidents in the house and won't go when taken outside. She simply waits until she can go out the doggie door and into the garage. How do I correct this behavior? :shrug:

Well, my guess for something to try would be when you are home close the doggy door. Make her come to you and ask to go out and then when she goes reward her with a party :crazy:. She needs to be eliminating while you are with her so that you can express your pleasure at her choice of spots to go. I would say at this point you should be greatful that she is at least going into the garage!
