Training the beagle

In Uncategorized by superdrewby5 Comments

A most important issue when you live in an apartment and have a dog is toilet training. Getting the dog to do her business in the right spot can be a frustrating experience.
Lucy was relatively easy to train in that she uses the downstairs bathroom as the place to go toilet. The problem is she goes right in the middle of the bathroom floor.
It means that we end up mopping up several times an evening (she is in office during the day and doesn’t go to the toilet until she gets home).
We have been trying to get her to go into the shower stall where it is easier to just turn the shower on to clean. Every now and then she has gone in there but almost always reverts back.
On the weekend at a Friends place their dog goes out on their balcony on plastic grass, so we decided that we would try this too.
So the first night we put the grass in the shower stall and covered it in some pee (hers not mine) and some puppy training spray too.
She totally ignored the grass and continued to pee right in the middle of the bathroom floor.
Next day we moved the grass to the middle of the bathroom thinking we could convince he to pee on this and then move it in.
Guess what?
She pees around the bloody grass!
All I want is her to pee int he shower stall, is it too much to ask?

    Keep trying, don’t give up. She’ll eventually give it a go and then praise her to death 😛

    Errr, Drew Darling, heard of getting her to do it on a walk? 😛

    Well then I think you need to teach her that poublic is the best place- has always worked for me 😛

    But you could take her somewhere secluded, or teach her to pee in the garden- am assuming you ‘mansion’ (Lol) has one of those 😛
