  • go out the same door all the time to the same area of the yard. if they have not gone potty in a short period of time they go back into crate for a little while and then try again. keep this up and soon it will happen fast.

  • My dog is older. I just want her to pee in the same area because it kills the grass. We don't use a kennel with her.

  • Take her on leash to the same part of the yard every time you take her out. Maybe even give her an identifier like Gravel or sand in places where she is allowed to go. She should pick up on it after a few days and head there on her own.
