I need some advice with regards to a 12 week old puppy, a bichon frise, we have purchased over a week ago. At first she would eliminate immediatley when brought outside, now her behavior has become increasingly defiant only wishing to stay in the house and have accidents inside, even after being brought outside, given a command ("get busy") and given lots of praise and a dog treat after she does go. Much more frequently she is soiling her crate, she is given water in her crate but not food, she is in her crate during the night and for about 6 hours during the day. She is played with and adored from 3 - 11 pm everday. She is played with and adored from 6 am - 9am everyday. 9 - 3 pm is nap time, why is she doing this and why is she going backwards so speak, rather than forward in her training? How do I break her bad habit of soiling where she sleeps and drinks? Please help!
