Thanks...I am gonna work on that bell training this weekend.  :thumbsup:

She hasnt pooped in the house so I guess that's good.  :laugh4:  They did say that her being in the kennel for 2 weeks might have made her "forget" her housetraining, they also think she was left outside in a pen most of the time at her old owners.  :veryangry:  I know it's not her fault, it is just very stressful and frustrating when you are used to having dogs that are settled.

A little dab of peanut butter on the bell works great to get them to ring it!

I am sure Abby is having an adjustment period and is nervous also.  That could make her have to pee more.

Also , you might want to pick up the water at night .... If she is not in the creat at night , and has full access to the water that may be part of her problem .   

Ditto on the kennel at night ......  She may cry the first night , but just ignore her . She will get it real quick that you are not going to respond .  You can also put  a blanket over the kennel which helps .  I put one on when my boy is in the kennel at night . 

If her UTI test is neg. then I would start from the basics .... pick up the water at 7 , put her out as late as possiable for you .    She will not die of thirst , and you might find out she can hold it all night and you can get a good nights sleep . ;)

Good luck

Thanks for all the advice. She does have access to water until about 10 pm when we go to bed. I will try taking that up at 7pm.   :thumbsup:

I mean she holds it for 4 hours at a time while I am at work and she is in her crate...so I know she can do it!  :inquisitive:

Just thought I'd update on how Miss Abby is doing with her housetraining.

She is now only getting up maybe once a night if that! Woo Hoo! And she is now letting us know when she has to go out by doing her little pee pee tap dance.  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I bought the bells (which were not easy to find!) and will start the bell training tomorrow!

I switched her to Canidea and her poops are now firm and regular and she isnt pooping as much as she was on Merrick! Another Woo Hoo!  :laugh4:

Hooray for Abby!  I knew she'd get better as she settled in.  I bet Al is happy too!

Did you ever get the results of her urine test back? Just wondering how it came back!

Yeah her urinalysis was fine, no problems.  They suggested that if she continues to have accidents in her crate then get a cysto done (sterile urine catch) for culture to rule out any issues. Trying to hold off on that for right now...I still think it is not a medical issue.
