His crate didn't come with a divider so I've put his plastic carry box inside, it blocks off about half of the crate, and happens to be as long as the crate is wide almost exactly.
This morning he started barking at around 7am, took me a minute or two to realise he'd need to pee, so I came downstairs, opened the door and saw him coming down from being on top of his plastic carry box, didn't think much because I've seen him climb on it and pull it over when he's agitated.
took him outside, he sniffed around for a bit, no pee. Took him straight back inside, back to bed for both of us.
My mum gave him breakfast and let him out, and when I got up, I looked in his crate...
And I noticed that what he'd done, was climb on top of the box, stand on it and pee up there! I didn't even know he'd physically be able to do that! there's a little well on the top where the handle is and it was full of pee. As annoying as it was because it meant taking the box apart and cleaning it, I thought it was really funny and clever, bless him
|When you must go.......you must be creative.|
|that IS funny!|
amazing how smart they can be when they want to do something, isn't it?
I am amazed that my boy can go ALL night - no accidents
but all day long, unless we stick to a strict schedule, before you know it, oops!
can't wait for him to outgrow this.... but then he'll be a big dog. so for now, I'll
deal with it
and I guess getting up and walking is good for my fibro anyway, right?
|George has been with us two and a half weeks and I think we've had one or two nights sleeping through. when I put him to bed I sit with him until he falls asleep then I creep off like a fool as not to wake him. Otherwise he will bark for ages. He normally does wake up and bark when I leave but only for a few seconds. Last night he didn't even stir |
I used to do that too when I took him out in the night for a pee, but now I just put him straight back to bed and leave, no talking, no fuss. He will bark, but will settle right down. That's made it so much easier for me. Plus my mum feeds him in the morning so it means I can get a little bit more sleep
So, toilet training night wise, not so bad atm. Daytime is a different story. If we're outside, he knows that in order to get back in, he needs to toilet. And I'm getting better at reading him but there's still an obscene amount of accidents in the house
Anyway, today, we all woke up, had breakfast, then I pulled his box out to take him to the vet. He'd peed on it again I guess he's not yet great at holding it.
that visit will be his last time in his box. He'll be too big very soon!!
