|I think Gus and Grace mean every 30 minutes while you are there. When you are not there, Tuna is in the crate where she is good with not going potty so no worries.
I would like to bring up something that I have found with a lot of my clients. (I am a behaviorist/trainer and I think yours should take a hike, I'm sorry you've already got money in on that.) Most of my clients with potty training issues keep food out all day long for their dogs. Once dogs are on a feeding and watering schedule the potty training issues go right out the window. Dogs should be fed twice a day according to their weight, you can usually find the right amounts on your dog food bag. When it comes to a watering schedule, give a bowl of water after every walk or playtime. The chewing action actually causes a bodily response to deficate and urinate in dogs so after her meals is the best time to take dogs out (10 minutes if not sooner for the beginner). Also, keep on that 30 minute potty break between meals while you are home, and if you are not home, in the crate she goes. If you are out of the home for numerous hours a day, a dog walker is necessary, unless you can go home on your break to let your pooch out. Hope this helps.
