    But you are right to keep Poppy and him supervised or separate at all times.

    I think I read in another thread that Poppy slipped up with her toilet training?

    This could be because things are a little unsettled at home at the moment with visitors. We are all such creatures of habit that we actually need to break these patterns a little bit so dogs learn to cope.

    I know I moved the box in the kitchen that the puppies sleep in one night and it upset them, now every couple of nights I move it to another spot, still within the kitchen area, they are used to that now.

    I put the puppies out an close the door behind them while I get ready for bed, turn off lights etc then open the door and let them back in. This is saving me from standing out in the cold waiting for them to go to the toilet. But like the others said every opportunity you get to reinforce the toilet training is a must.
    Very true MAC! They left yesterday thank goodness but perhaps she was still a bit out of sorts since we had gone away for the weekend and then they had come too!

    I like the idea of putting her out for 15 - 20 mins before we go to bed. I was worried about how we would go tonight waiting around for her to wee BUT I will also make sure I start saying her cue word when I do see her going and praise her a lot after it just like I did when she was smaller!

    You've got some great advice Amy, but also remember that dogs are no different to humans in that sometimes we meet people that we simply don't like. There is nothing wrong with that, but it IS important that any dog is taught to behave itself in this situation. Personally if one of my dogs didn't like someone then I wouldnt force them to interact with them. I'd let them find somewhere to "escape" and let them be.

    Thats good to know GAG!

    She did escape to her crate for a bit but then came looking for us. I really do think it was a case of her not feeling okay about his behaviour! The sudden movements, funny noises, loudness etc!
