Okay, here is a situation that I am in and I am sure that I will have, and want to get other people's opinion. Cassidy is 9 weeks of age, and is in the process of potty training. So, far, 4 accidents and counting for being in the house for 2 days. Now, I am crate training, and when she starts to go on the floor, I tell her no! and then take her outside, then tell her to go potty. When she goes, I praise her. (she seems to think that when she scratches the door, I take her to go potty...now she keeps scratching it to go outside for the heck of it.) The problem is, my parents have raised beagles and told me that I should not promote puppy pads, because there should be no positive enforcement for going inside. Well, it's rainy and cold here in Florida, and the last thing I want is for my baby to get sick. So, do I use the pads? What should I do? I also should mention that I am partially disabled and my fiance works all of the time. I will be doing most of the dirty work. I am trying to work on her about sitting, ect, but right now she is too worried about the smells. lol, that's why they say patience with beagles. Stubborn little creatures. So, tips and what have you would be great!
