Is there any "right" way to train a sheltie to potty outside? The problem I am having, is our breeder used puppy pads (as well as random time outside) for pottying. My fiance has trained her puppy with puppy pads (Im not a big fan of this because of the smell and it just doesnt seem right for a dog to potty inside). Either my Kiko (our sheltie) doesnt seem to want to potty on her puppy pad, unless she is in her crate. She gives to signs that she knows its there when she is running around, even though she used the puppy pad while we were picking her up and she watched our older puppy use it. Of course I take her out 30 minutes after she eats for 10 minutes (she wont potty) so I take her out an hour after she eats for another 10 minutes (still no potty). Then we will come in the house and like 10 minutes later she will have an accident. I tell her bad girl and set her on the puppy pad but she just hops right off as happy as could be?
