ty yes that is what i was thinking... i have a friend in brazil and most dogs live outside there and she told me that they train them to go in one section of the yard (i was thinking since they are outside dogs they treat one section of the yard as sleeping/playing and the other for potty) of course my future dog will be an inside dog but i still would like to make clean up a little easier!!Take him there on leash for a few months first maybe?
great thank u; any ideas how big i should make the area and and what would be a good fence to use??take him to the same spot everytime it's potty time.
you could fence off an area for the dog.
so glad to hear this worked for u; :waveysorry my son wanted me to add the waving guy, lol) anyway, i like that u had a "name" for the spot, i wouldn't have thought of that!!Yes, my son was 4 when we got our puppy and we didn't want her going where he played so from the very start (8 weeks old) we took her to the very back of the yard along the fence line. It helps to "name" the place (or it did for us) We just called it "the back". If she tried to go elsewhere in the yard we said "not here" and brought her to the spot and said "in the back". As a young puppy we carried her there and just stayed there( on leash ).
She picked it up pretty quickly. After a while we could just let her out and say go in the back. After a little longer she just knew.
that is a great idea thank u!I would make it min 3m by 3m.
I would teach also the command "go potty", so he goes potty when you want him to.
by the front door would make it easier in the snow! wow, i don't think of these things! lol!!We did the same from 8 weeks of age and on.... we always did and still do leash walk them to the area of the yard that's theirs to do their business Ive just always said go pee or ya gotta poop ! lol
Its only about 20 -30 foot from the front door. And it is much easier for cleanup, and there are no surprises elsewhere in the yard We didn't give the area a name though and thats a pretty good idea
We have two Goldens ..it is part of a large stone covered area so approx size for each dog is 8'x8'. They each have their own section.
