Re: HELP! My dog has excitement pee

While I totally agree that the dog needs to get out more through the day (I don't even like to see dogs stay indoors all day), I think there are a couple of things you might do to help this dog. You say the dog is not house trained, but the other owner did not have a problem, this may or may not be...

Re: HELP! My dog has excitement pee

I would second trying to find a dog walker or friendly neighbor to take her out once or twice while you're at work to see if that helps. Like people, dogs have differing bladder capacities. I know a dog who won't pee outside if it's storming, and will wait up to 24 hours to potty, but that's not ex...

Re: HELP! My dog has excitement pee

Was very polite considering what I would have liked to have said :wink: Because a dog can doesn't mean a dog should. Yes, I understand that but I'm a new dog owner. Ive only had my 1st one for 8 months now so if I'm coming here for help its because I really need it. Not for sarcasm. Oh and if that ...

Re: HELP! My dog has excitement pee

Assuming this is genuine, and for anyone out there just reading, it is not acceptable to keep a dog crated for this length of time, and I am really surprised you can't understand why she pees when you get home. Please reorganise her life so that she is taken out at least once and preferably twice d...

HELP! My dog has excitement pee

Hi everyone. I recently adopted a 3 year old Maltese from a family that didn't have time for her. Thing is, she is NOT housetrained so I crate her during the day until I come home from work which is about 9 hours. My other dog who is 2 yrs old I let roam the apartment because he IS housetrained. Now...

Re: My dog wont eat his dog food anymore

How much kibble do you feed him a day, how big is he, and how much does he get in training treats? We always mix in a bit of "people food" to our dogs' kibble, to keep it a bit different and to keep them from getting bored with their food. Leftover meat meals, rice, etc. It's not much - about a qua...

My dog wont eat his dog food anymore

What should I do. He' got used to his "treats" like hot dogs, bacon etc. Now when I put out his regular dog food he isn't eating it. How can I get him to get back to eating his dog food???

Yes, I'm learning this as a new dog parent. I'll leave it simple with him and just take him out.

Re: How to train a dog to potty indoors AND outdoors

You have a lovely attitude of not wanting your Jack to suffer anything needlessly! But as long as Jack is healthy and potty breaks in extreme weather conditions are kept to a safe and reasonable time limit, I wouldn't think being outside for potty breaks would be detrimental to him. Charley and I h...

Re: How to train a dog to potty indoors AND outdoors

In summer, too, you just have to limit the amount of time you're out there and find a nice shady spot for him. I feel like you might feel as if he needs to be protected like a newborn, which I understand. But he'll be fine as long as he isn't exposed for too long. In bad weather, if he seems like h...

Re: How to train a dog to potty indoors AND outdoors

Thanks for the replies guys. Yes, I know I'm lucky to have a dog that is housebroken. I just wanted to give him another option in real bad weather but I dont want to confuse him into thinking going in the house ANYWHERE is ok either. Ok, well I'll just have to invest in a big coat. I'm also thinking...

Re: How to train a dog to potty indoors AND outdoors

My Charley sympathizes with your Jack - he does not like going out in rain/snow!!! We have a big pine tree in our yard, and on really bad days I carry him out under the tree so he can potty in relative protection from the elements! :lol: I recently read about someone setting up a greenhouse out on ...
