    Default Advice PLEASE

    Hi everyone

    I need some advice .I have been looking fora dog fr a while now and I have found one .I am going to look at her today, ok so I have 3 young children and this pet is a small dog ,everythingsounds good .The only thing is the lady said she isnt sure how good is is at not peeing in the house .The owner said the dog sleeps inside at night and doesnt seem to make a mess but spends most of her time outside .The little dog s female and 10 months old .My question is if this little dog is not house trained at all how hard will it be to trian given the age of the dog?
    thanks in advance

    The current owner doesn't know??? What the???
    God, this dog will surely have a better time at your place!

    If she's able to make it through the night and not releive her bladder in the house, she should be fine.

    Once you get her, though, just go back to the basics. Your home and environment is new, the family is new, so make sure you keep taking her outside at regular intervals so she understands where you would like her to 'go.' Once you can ascertain whether she IS house-trained, just make sure she's got access to outside during the day.

    Just make sure this dog relates to your children well. All the best.

    Hi there
    Im so happy that you were feeling that way about this women ,I kinda think that she is a bit strange how could you not know if your dog is toilet trained .She also put me off till today to go meet the dog .her reason was she was in and out all day and wouldnt be home long enough for me to come .I have a feeling she needs to clean the dog up before we come .So anyways Im going to go and check her dog out if the dog is good with my children then in my car she goes to a better home I think lol

    thanks so much for your help I will be back to let you know how we go ,oh love the site

    Hi woohoo,

    Please be cautious! When you view the dog, listen to your head and not just your heart.

    I wouldn't necessarily be believing anything the current owner tells you, either. Check the dog out thoroughly and find out for yourself.
    Don't know why, just got alarm bells going here. Hopefully I'm wrong and the dog will be a little cutie and a perfect fit for your family.

    Yes, agree with all of the above. Make a head, not heart choice. Good luck.

    The more people I meet, the more I like my dogs.
