So let me give you an idea'r of the situation. Yes I live in a condo. I have a green belt right off the flight of 30 stairs. You enter the condo and there are 15 additional stairs (penthouse floorplan). The book says if you have a yard (iam considering the greenbelt the "YARD") train your pup to go in her potty place in the yard. If you live in an apartment type setting to train them to use their puppy toilet till they are old enough to go out. Approx 3 months. This is where the dilemna comes in. Do I try and run the Vega down the 45 or so stairs and get her to the potty place outside? Or, do I train her to use her potty place inside ( a sod roll or a puppy pad with grass and soil rubbed in for smell. And then take her out when she reaches the appropriate age? My other concern is that there are other dogs and I was told not to take her out where there will be other dogs till she gets her first boosters. Does this hold validity? Or is that only for Dog parks and such? Rasing a pup in a condois a new thing for me so just want to get some feedback. I am also concerned that yeah she may not poop or whiz on me while I am holding her and making a break for it as she will not be in a still state, but there is a possibility that she may not even care and let loose out the caboose.
