Puppy who won't pee outdoors in the rain!

What can be done?

I spent ages standing in the rain outside with 8 week old madam today, and she refused to pee. The minute we got indoors she peed on a blanket, she ran indoors so fast it must've been quite desperate! - I was still walking through the door with my umbrella as I saw it happen!

Yesterday went so well, with dry weather we could keep the door open and there was only one accident all day long.

But I can tell she HATES the rain!

My last puppy also didn't like the rain but she would at least go quickly then rush back indoors! grin

Is this just a matter of patience or is there a technique I'm missing here?

Both our "ruffie tuffie" staffies were like this, though they did have the capacity to hold it in for hours. They were quite happy to wait until 11am in the morning to go out if it was raining.

Large covered cat tray outside the back door, do you have a porch.

Sheer ignorance was the only way I got through to my (also very wimpy Staffie). I stood in the garden for 30 minutes with her the one day in the rain to get her to wee outside. It worked though now, if it's raining, she legs it under the overhanging hedge really quick and runs back in lol

Glad I'm not alone!

I think I should have not given up so easily. Sigh.

I just fell for it.

Probably because I wanted to go and pee inside the house like she did!
