Poppy the Staffy is 3 years old and initially lived inside, was housetrained and she is the easiest dog I have ever had to train generally. She lived outside for a couple of years and is back indoors but we are having problems with her toilet training. The back door is open so she can go outside and when she wakes up and several other times during the day and evening we take her out.
We have just been outside in the garden for three hours and she has come in and poo'd on the landing upstairs. The back door was open so she could have gone back outside but she didn't.
How can we get her to go outside when she wants to go? We ignore her when she goes in the house and praise her when she goes outdoors but OH is starting to talk about her going to live back outside with the other dogs, which I don't want.
