    To me, it has being a bit like forever. I've being wanting a dog for three years now, and now that I've finally got her, I'm gonna embrace it. These short nine days have passed just so quickly that it seems as if I've had her for so much longer.

    Is she solely your dog or do you share her with Alice?

    She's solely mine. I feed her, I walk her, I take her out to pee, I play with her... parents and sister (Alice hates her, remember?) do nothing.

    Haha. She wasn't so perfect in puppy classes. Was too scared. She only got less scared towards the end. It's still good though... considering this is her first week seeing the world

    THis was just sitting in a circle (humans on chairs, dogs on floor) with the trainer telling us how to properly teach a dog to sit and stand. She also gave us lots of info about crate training, house training, socialising, Kongs

    boss is a inside dog. He is blue heeler. He can go outside whenever he wants, we leave the slide door open. I reckon its good that he is a inside dog cos wen go to visit our olds, he knows how to behave inside the house

    Yeah, limits & boundaries, & what if your dog needs to go to the toilet & no one is there to let the dog out, either your dog will toilet in house or be constipated for hanging on so long.

    By the sounds of things your poor dog sounds like it lives in a concentration camp. I so feel sorry for your dog.

    ohh thats right your just 1st time dog owner & another younger adult who thinks they know it all about dogs..ffs grow up & freaken start treating dogs with some bloody kindness & compassion...
    I do not agree with the reason Masha gave, but I don't agree with you Aussie Floyd either
    I happened to live in an apartment most of my life - until now, when I do have a fenced yard (not all that big). Even now, when in summer I have all doors open, and when my dogs are free to go wherever, they prefer to be inside even if I'm not there. I do believe that other people who have indoor dogs take their dogs out regularly and apartment life is not a prison life if you adjust your lifestyle to your dog's needs. My dogs do not even do their business in my yard, but ask to go out. They will do it if I tell them to, however, sometimes I stay up very late, so even if they had their late night walk I take them out back and say "Ok, do a wee-wee", so they do it (with hesitation). I don't see the torture in having your dog inside.

    I also ensure that someone can come and walk them if I have to stay late at work or be absent. When my late dog got old and sick, we'd put a toilet area for her, and later she'd wear a nappy because she became incontinent. And yes, even an old 14 years old dog learnt how to use an indoor loo.
