We got home today and took her outside and got her to pee and poop in it. We were thrilled. We've taken her out twice since then and she doesn't really want to walk in it and won't pee again. We know she needs to go.
Are we pushing her too much? Should we go slower with getting her used to it? We just didn't want her to think if she waits long enough we'd give in. She's very stubborn.
Thanks so much!
Quite possible that she was in the chair too long the first time. Take it slow and make sure you praise her when she pees and poops in the chair. Try adding the belly belt for the disc problem which will help support the her back.
We are going to try just doing little bits of time in the chair for her. So she gets used to it. Then try focusing on the peeing and pooping. Thanks!
Keep using Good Treats for positive reinforcement. My boxer was very stubborn, put him in the wheelchair and went about doing something in the yard. Well he got bored just standing there and decided to follow me, I looked around and there he was wagging his tail!
