Rosie's Mom again today. I want to thank everyone for their comments and good advice. This weekend was a success with Rosie's training. We crated her when we left the house and paid strict attention to when she had to go outside and there were no accidents. We also spent all day Saturday cleaning the carpets down stairs and they look and smell delightful so we are being extra careful with watching Rosie's every move. This morning, I had her outside and she went #1 and and then wandered around the yard a bit. She came in and ate her breakfast. Then I saw her sneak off to go down stairs. I followed her and caught her before she did anything but, she was certainly planning on leaving a poop down there so I took her right outside and she went in the proper place. I think she will need this type of attention for a while before she gets it right. I did crate her when I left for work this morning and she seemed OK with it - I know she would rather lounge on the couch all day but oh well.
Thanks again and I will let you know how it all works out.
Rosie's Mom, Kristy
