Thanks fergus, do they work for doo-doo too?
I want her to go outside, not in the house. Could I put the wee-wee pad outside? I don't want o encourage her to do any business inside. I have to go out for a little while today and get the kids some new shoes. I dread what I will come home to. I am keeping her in the kitchen while we are out, and I understand she can't hold it yet, but eventually, I hope her bladder size strecthes beyond 10cc's! She's been pretty good with piddles, you don't have to guess when she'll do that, just take her out, and it's a guarantee. Of course when she poops in the house, there's usually a little pee with it. But, what I can't figure out is her bowel habits. I took her out for a long time today, knowing she goes about 8-10 each am, but after that whole long bit, she came in to poop! And poop is not cute! I have to get this handled, since hubby will not be nearly as patient as me. I have forbidden him from touching her or even yelling at her in a mean way! Maybe I am being too soft? I just want her to feel comfortable (but not that comfortable) as a member of the family before we get serious. Is that a mistake?
I don't want her to be scared of me, so how do I admonish her for this? MY son said today, you have to show it to her and say BAD DOG! I don't know, it seems so mean! I KNOW sticking their nose in it does nothing! Some say it even encourages them to eat it! GROSS! My other dog learned from her mommy, our other dog! So, I have never had to train a dog before. I think I'll go surfing to find out more. I am open to any suggestions!
