MC , letís make that a 1,000% not to potty train in the house !
All our Dobers have pretty easy to potty train till we got Mr. Business , a story from hell with him , someway , he got confused , I would let him out to potty , even go out with him and he would just goof around out there , open the door , he would run on a 100 mph , run under the dining room table and then bombs away ! You talk about a unhappy wife , you know the saying , momma not happy , nobodies happy ! This took forever to break , wife will , may disagree here , but I asked. Ali for help ! I let them out together to potty , of course Ali was , is a pro and does her deal as Mr. Misfit watched , then he had to smell it and then pee on it , that was the turn about right there , then in short order , he was good to go ! Thank God !
Question ! About where do you live , the reason I asked is , your getting the pup around the first of the year , right ? And trying to train a pup pottie training in the winter , if you live in snow and cold country that can be a challenge itís self ! These dogs are very smart and they pick up quick , take Ali girl , we got her in Jan , it was warm the day we picked her up , then somebody put us in the freezer , so I would put her little coat on her and we had made a hood to put over her cropped ears to protect them , then take her out , so fast forward , it only took a few days , Ali girl would be out in the house playing and I would ask her if she needed to go potty ? She would look at me , run to the office where her crate was , run in it and poop ! Lol sometimes both ! Then run back in and play , the little stinker didnít want to go out in the cold . I fixed that , I didnít ask no more , just grabbed her and out we went , lol
if You do live in cold weather country , and have her ears cropped , you will have to go very careful to N
OT get them frost bit , them little tender ears will freeze very quick .
We have been blessed with my occupation , donít make any money at it , but get time off ,so we were around to let the pup out threw the day , that really helped , I personal think it was a key in potty training , you walk in , let them outside and there teeth are about to float and they donít mess around , they potty , then right back in .
One last story , I promise
last year , the gal at the post office got a new lab pup , cute thing , she was so proud of him
then one day I had to go to the pickup area, ,she waited on me , I asked about Charlie , she said she was thinking of leaving out a few times to see how he got along , it must have been the look on my face , lol she then asked , you donít think so ? I said Charlie is a good boy , but your asking a lot from a 5 month pup ,I could tell she thought I was full of you know what ! She had trained her dog she said , I smiled and nodded , really it was a big smile .
Next day , Iím not kidding , the next day ! I heard her call my name , she came out front and said , I hate to say this , but you were right about Charlie , Iím sorry , but I could quit lmao at her story ! Well she tested Charlie , and only left him 20 minutes ! In that time , Charlie had found a tube of silicon , he had cut a hole in it , and ran threw the house , up on the couch and got it everywhere , then a couple pair of shoes , destroyed a leg on a table , and there was something else he got , now the funny part , I seen her last week , she just fills in here now and then , so donít see her , I asked about Charlie and then I had to ask ! Now that heís 2 or so , if he has free run , A big NO she said . Lol
Have fun with your dober ! They will test you and your reward will be for a life time ! Trusty me
