Is there any trick to help housetraining along?
Maybe I'm not doing it right?
Gimli does fine at night when he sleeps with me but if I put him in the gated bathroom he pisses on the floor during the night. Granted I have a spot of news papers where I'm trying to train him to go should he need to with a house training spray so maybe he smells it and just goes anywhere in that room?
I apparently can't catch all his "I have to potty, Mommy" signals yet so he has at LEAST one accident a day. I need to find a bell so that we can start on bell training.
Any suggestions would rock!
Singed a stressing out new mommy.

One thing that dawned on me and slightly concerns me as to interferences to potty training..... The people that owned the condo I live in before me had a dog and I have the same carpet. While I know it has been cleaned with a cleaner and I have spot cleaned it, there are still stains from the previous dog. I also have had my boyfriend's dog all over my condo since February, but not once did he eliminate inside, except once when he threw up in the living room.
Could lingering sents of other doggies, particularly potty/marking scents, be confusing my lil Gimster and making him feel he has to mark different places?
Does any one have any tricks or product suggestions of what I could do/use to clean up my carpets and bathroom to maybe get rid of the other dog's scent?
