Re: [wibbly] Help!!Help!!My MS Pee Poo Everyway!!
[In reply to]
i am new in this forum, have been browsing to get some feel on what is it keeping a small dog. i am having my 2nd adopted dog (from SPCA) now after the first one passed away 2 years ago. they are both mid size dogs, i allow them to sleep indoors. i never had the problem of needing them to pee / poo in the toilet. what i did was to train them to go out to do their business and expect them not to discharge anything during the night - or else will get a big jerk on their skin on the back of their neck (i learnt this from dog training books, and it is good way of saying "you did something wrong). so far not issues.
I am considering my first toy dog now - M Schnauzer, are mini dogs able to do the same as bigger dogs? i.e. no pee/ poo during the night, pee and poo only outside the garden? I can arrange to let them out every 2 to three hours. or is it a norm that everyone train these dogs to pee in toilet?
also, just to share, one of the books i have read (long time ago) taught me to use the word "BAD!" rather than "NO!" as the scolding word, as it is more forceful. i find it very good, my two dogs are behaving well. I don't pamper them, but i love them like hell!! just don't show - exactly like those stern fathers on movies, heh...
