I understand it may be awkward to give advice as I am actually a dog sitter and the puppy is only with me until Wednesday but the constant cleaning up every morning is hard work. Have a little 3 month old boxer puppy staying, she's gorgeous and been no trouble at all. Apart from her toilet training. She has never weed outside the house. I have managed to get her to go for poos outside during the day and give her lots of encouragement. But during the night it's a lot harder. One of the reasons for this is because I take her over the field during the day. But when it gets to 5pm it's pitch black over there. Nowhere else seems to work. I attempted to take her out back on her lead even though I knew it wasn't going to work. My garden is very narrow and small. She just spends the time being distracted and picking up things she shouldn't. I walked her on the roads last night but she was scared and distracted and wouldn't toilet. I feel embarrassed to say that I didn't attempt to walk her tonight apart from out the garden (she didn't toilet). I'm tired and have to be up at 6am to walk her, as I do a paper round for an hour in the morning. I do feel it's progressing. I have tried to stick to the owners routine. She eats 4 times a day.
