Where did Matilda come from? Have you had her since she was a young puppy?
Chat shows you as being offline. I will change to question and answer mode and when you are next online you can answer my question above and we can take it from there
As for your questions, Matilda came from a petshop in the West village, called Le Petit Puppy. She is chip installed, is registered with a pedigree club other than AKC, forget the name bec all the papers are w my ex boyfriend whom I had to leave in a hurry.
The woman who owns the shop deals with with the same breeder for a long time and I've met many people who got their babies from her on the streets of NYC, all totally satisfied w the cuties.
the Pedigree certificate hasn't arrived yet, but the owner said her dad was a champion (of what I don't know) there were 4 puppies in the litter, 3 girls one boy. she was confined to a playpan in nyc and has a cosy sherpa bag which is her favorite place to hide (go home Matilda), so that's home. I got her 0n the 4th of september and when in the city she did her her pees and poops 90% on the paper. important to add thar the a couple of days after we got her my ex put her on thje coffee table and she jumped and broke her front paw. the cast prevented regular walks and has been a hindrance to early housebreaking, because we were asked by my vet to curb her movement. Doesnt help much because the moment she's out of confinement she runs like a the energizer bunny, smiling and kissing everyone. she also barks sharply when she hears the movement of people in the adjoining rooms, is terrified of anything big like tyhe broom or hairdryer or even the her brush.
please get back to me I'm waiting for you online
Because of the broken leg the vet had asked me to try and keep her inactive, so we started on the wee wee pads.now she had the cast changed to to a soft but thinck bandage and I saw the last xray a week ago, and she is better but not fully healed.
I kept the wee wee pad just in case, but am taking her out since she runs like crazy (doesn't bolt off and always keeps me within sight) but I figured since i cant restrain her I might asd well tyake her for long walks. she never poops or pees when we're out.
would be all good and doable,and It's just what I did with my now dead angel Pomeranian Freddy (he died of a massive heart attack 2 yrs ago 1 month after my husband died of cancer at age 38.
Freddy was the the most cherished dog at the Good Dog Society, and he brought a woman out of a come. he was very zen, always smiling and had a rare but deep bark. His passing at 6 and a half was devastatating to me and the patients he served at Mount sinai hospital. Matilda is very different.
She is far more hyper, she barks in a shrill sound (a lot) and when I leave her alone to go for a moment she wakes up the whole whole house, where I rented a room to escape an obsessive ex boyfriend. We are now in Woodstock NY and I brought her with me when I left midtown NYC 2 weeks ago.
I never used peepee pad for Freddy, he learned by positive reinforcement to only eliminate outside. I taught him in 2 days.
He also came when I called, he did everything perfectly and I don't choose to compare Matilda to him, since its unfair, but the little girl is not an easy case. she is a bit nervous and jumpy, and she tinkles lightly when she meets anyone new, all of whom she wants to kiss and play with.
then I walk her, she does nothing, comes home and poops and pees anywhere. I just removed the pad, used the enzymatic cleanser all over the floor.
BTW, she eats raw food twice a day but has water available always.
I thought this could put her on a poo schedule
ONLY PROBLEM W CONFINING THAT SHE IS SHARPLY VOCAL AND I SHARE A HOME W STRANGERS TEMPORARILY, HAVING HAD TO MOVE AWAY FROM AN OBSESSIVE ABUSIVE BOYFRIEND.
ID HAVE TO BE SITTING CONSTANTLY NEXT TO HER PEN TO NOT ANNOY THE HOUSEMATES.
AS FAR AS THE ELIMINITING GOES, I KEEP SAYING AS WE GO OUT, GO PEEPEE, GO POOPOO, AND THE ONLY TIME SHE DID I FUSSED AND PRAISED AND TOLD HER WHAT A GOOD GIRL SHE IS.MATILDA POOPOO OUTSIDE, GOOD GIRL, TREATS AND KISSES.THAT WAS THE MEMORABLE OCCASSION!!!!
IN TRUTH, BACK IN NYC,SHE WAS ELIMINATING 90% OF THE TIME ON THE PAD,BUT SINCE MOVING TO THE COUNTRY, WITH MANY MORE NEW PEOPLE TO GET EXCITED AND DISTRACTED ABOUT, PLUS A FAT DOG AND CAT WHO ARE LOCKED UP IN THE OWNERS ROOM, SHE HAS LOST HER MANNERS.
