I recently adopted our 2year old pitt from an animal shelter and we have been having issues with her using the bathroom in the house even if we are home and taking her out regularly. Was wandering if anyone had any suggestions on what i could do to get her to go outside?

I recently also adopted a pitt mix and he is 2 years old. He had never lived in a home before at first he just went anywhere he wanted including right in front of me. I just strongly told him no and moved his face towards where he went. I would take him out as often as possible and give him treats anytime he went outside. Now I have had him about 1 month and he is fully potty trained so I would recommend giving lots of praise/treats everytime she goes outside. Also block off as many areas of your home as possible and crate her when you leave until she learns not to go inside.
