Our miniature dachshund is now 6 months old! She's cute but she is very defiant. She knows where to potty outside and does so most of the time.

When we put her in her laypen to play with toys etc she pees just a few drops on her blanket. Even if she just went outside. We walk her to her playpen as well. Any advice? she just whines in there not plays ever.

Please help. We cant play her for 5 hours a day frown We do sometimes but not every day. She needs to learn to play by herself at least half the time??
