Sigh.... So I know it's only been a few weeks, and maybe I am expecting too much but I feel like I've been doing my best to house break him....
The days I am home he goes out every couple of hours, after he eats, after him a Jones wrestle around, after he wakes up from a nap, if he goes to the backdoor I let him out... needless to say he goes out a lot, I am treating him just like a puppy! But still constantly is having accidents in the house. They are little, small amounts of pee, small amounts of poop (very loose)... Am I expecting too much?
And tonight, I am going over to a friends house so I put him in the crate like I normally do, and he is freaking out. Of course I am not even acknowledging it, and I am just going to let him freak out, but why is he going crazy? For 3 weeks he was perfectly happy about the crate, heck he would go in on his own just to sleep or relax, now this...
I just feel so frustrated. I've never had this issue with any of my other fosters and maybe that is why it's killing me. He's my first "terrier" though also, and I've always said I am not the person to own a terrier because I feel they are pretty Stubborn and "bull" headed... Well that is my personality too, and the two just don't mix.
Do any of my terrier owners have any advice for me? Anything at all, even if it's just words of encouragement...
