This past Monday we "adopted" a rescue dog from the APA. She was listed as a 1yo terrier mix but appears to be a (mostly?) Rat Terrier that is still cutting back teeth. Does anyone here have any tips on house breaking/other training? She won't be used for hunting and we're in the process of getting permits and bids to fence the back yard. Also wondering on a good brand of dog food; the APA gave us a bag of Pedigree dry food but she will only eat it if we mix it with a little warm water. She has had at least two previous owners as well as running loose for a while so we're dealing with trust issues. She takes a lot of coaxing to get her to go outside even though we're walking her on a leash. We're not giving up on her so any and all tips will be greatly appreciated.
