Happiness Is...

A Puppy that will Poo Outside!


The I-am-soooo-guilty Look

Ever since we got the new puppy, I have had to change the newspaper in his crate AND clean the kitchen floor all the time because although he DOES pee outside, he seems intent on pooing in his water bowl, hard to reach crevices in his crate and yes, on the kitchen floor (this is one time that i am thankful that we have NOT put in the new kitchen floor laminates as yet ).

So you can imagine my shock and delight when I brought him out this morning and later this afternoon....AND HE POO'D OUTSIDE IN THE YARD....BOTH TIMES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can you just see me doing my Snoopy Happy Jig right now?

good luck with the "potty" training. we were lucky when we got ours that he was already a year old and knew how to do all that. :)

Oh he's such a pretty puppy. Does he have 'big pretty brown eyes'. Ok I'm dog person but I'm not home enough to have one for my own.

Hello Doc,

I as well work in the professional field of nursing and medical.
You have a nice site, hope you can visit mine, when you have a chance.Http://cntrybleu.blogspot.com, and my Country Doc website on my blogroll you'll find..
Just a note, I had the tag board,and it kept giving me ticker ads, (popups), annoying. So I took the tagboard off. They are nice to have, I am still trying to find one that doesn't come with popups.
Regards,
Bleu

Your puppy is cute! Now that you said so, I can see that he did have a guilty look in the photo! Do you have a name for him?

Congratulations! That is a monumental step for a puppy! The puppy is absolutely adorable :).

My dog Petey took forever to train to poo outside. I was about to give up when I got Randy. He saw Randy go outside and started copying him!

Congrats on your cute puppy finally taking you off of inside poo patrol! Jeff

how old id your puppy? i use to train my puppies by putting them in a small bathroom after they eat especially and at night with newspapers all over the floor. after the puppy goes on the newspaper the next time you feed the puppy take the same soiled newspaper outside and put it where you want the puppy to go. stay out there with the dog and keep taking her near the soiled newspaper. if you take the papers around the very edge of the bathroom and take them away and leave a soiled newspaper on the other papers .keep decreasing the papers a little at a time in the bathroom each night . during the day while you are home have the paper outside that is soiled in the same spot. be sure to take the puppy out after you feed her.

Hi Letti, Nice dog. I wouldn't sweat it. She'll come around. I have a Dalmation-Husky. She was house broken in under two weeks. When they are young try to get her outside about every four or five hours. Thats about as long as a young puppy can hold out. The older they get the longer they can wait. Get your pup used to doing its business outside.

Be thankful you didn't have to train three dogs and no not all at the same time lol now that would be IMPOSSIBLE!

CJ said...

How cute!
I've got mine going too. She has an "oops" every once and a while but she's getting pretty good at going out too.

That's funny to do a snoopy dance for your dog's poo...

hee, hee
