    DefaultHousebreaking issue...

    Hi! Bunny is 4 months now and doing great! We can leave her in the kitchen no problem, she realizes this is her "home" and will not eliminate in there...however, she still doesn't realize the rest of the house is our home, too. She thinks if she has to go, she can just use the playroom, or the hallway....how do I help her realize the WHOLE house is not a potty? Thanks!

    Baby-gate off the areas of the house that are off-limits so she won't potty there. Continue to use the crate and the kitchen as 'good' areas and take her out often. Consistency is key, coupled with not giving her too much freedom before she's ready. Set her up for success, not failure.

    Easier said than done! Our place is quite large, and we have several large doorways that would require the expensive bigger gates. And of course the place is all carpeted. : (Gotta love military housing!) Last time I trained a puppy DH and I were newly together and our place was tiiiiny...I mean, 300sqft so it was a lot easier!

    tether her to you when you can't 100% supervise or crate when you can't supervise.

    Check online. There are extra-wide baby gates available. J&J Dog supplies maybe??

    Or, stick to what Dani says...
