Paper means Pee!

Zeus is doing fairly well. He still gets whiny when one of us (mostly Jay) leaves him in his crate or pen, even if the other (mostly me) is still in the room. If we are both there, all is peace. However, Jay has to go back to work and that means I'm on puppy duty.

Today, we went for a quick potty run out front, he squatted and then got interested in ice and a dog down the street. I needed to work upstairs, so upstairs we went. Our washer and dryer are upstairs just after the stair landing, and a paper towel had drifted there quite innocently. Well, Zeus was raised to piddle on shredded paper, so he sauntered over to the paper towel and -- produced more pee! I corrected him (without shouting or kicking or being mean) and out we went again, where he -- yes -- PEED again.

Our puppy is made of pee, curls, and dog biscuits.

  1. "How to Housebreak Your Dog in 7 Days" is the best book I have ever read to housebreak your new puppy. It has worked on three dogs (for us) and I have given it to numerous others.

    My second half of potty training theory is you are only close to being done, when you find yourself crying. "I took him outside for half an hour and NOTHING. We came inside and one foot inside the door, on the carpet, EVERYTHING cam out! (tears ensue)" At that point you are about two days away from success.

    Congratulations on your new child!
