Gracie on House-Soiling

GraceWhat a relationship-killer this turns out to be! Humans seem to be very persnickety about where we ‘go’ and where we don’t, but aren’t really good about letting us know what they want. How confusing! Just when we get a good spot going (under the bed, the hall closet, that bedroom nobody ever uses), all hell breaks loose! It’s enough to make me bite myself raw.

Sometimes, we figure things out on our own, but mostly not. As smart as we are, understanding the mind of a human can be just too much to handle on our own.

To help you help us, Barbara wrote a tip sheet that she hands out to some of the dog rescues and shelters she works with (some us lose our HOMES over this stuff!) and you can get your own copy of that here, free of charge.Download ‘Housetraining Made Simple’ now!

OK, sure, there’s not enough information here to help absolutely everyone, since each family is different and each dog is different. For more help, you can buy the most wonderful house training book in the world, “Way To Go,” by Dr. Patricia McConnell (Barbara’s read me most of her stuff, and she’s the doggiest human I’ve ever heard of!). It’s not free, but cheap, and has lots of great help for teaching your dog the rules of the house.
