    Tahlz, don't worry about my dogs, they're happy, healthy well trained dogs

    I don't think i am a lazy owner because of the technique i use. A lazy owner would be somebody who doesn't train their dogs at all and i spend ALOT of time training my dogs, and i am very proud of the way they have turned out, i have one very well behaved pooch

    Everybody has different techniques and methods they prefer to use. There is no wrong and right way as with anything in life.

    Lala - Trust me, i have never used any other method in toilet training any of my animals. whilst i put there face in it i say 'outside' so they learn to get outside to do their business. The day it doesn't work, will be the day i stop. Nobody has to agree with me cause that's life, but hey, i'm being honest with what i do. Love it or leave it

    I wasn't saying your dogs aren't happy because I bet they are but if you are so willing to put tons of effort in to training/doing things with your dogs, why aren't you willing to do a nicer way of toilet training? Why do you choose to do the harsher/nastier method?

    Because i use what works, and that is what has always worked for me. I don't think it's nasty, they don't go walking around with urine or pooh on their faces lol, it's a quick whiff up the nose. Seriously do you think if you go around in circles enough i will change my mind? Just accept it and move on in life

    I will never tell anyone what they should do, but one day you will get a sensitive dog who will make the mistake. And when you do what you always do , you will destroy this one dog. As large as newfies are they are very sensitive..if someone did that to a newfie puppy they would loose all confidence. I agree that some dogs can handle it quite well. Just like a lot of dogs can handle other stuff....but there is those sensitive souls who would not cope, even the once.........

    Ok, so, if it isn't nasty, I'm sure you'd be willing to do it to yourself or a child? It's putting urine near a dogs face or rubbing it in the dogs face. By the sounds of it, you just shove their face in it, not rub it in, thats better at least bit it's still disgusting.

    Fair enough, thats what you want to do but it's sad you don't think it's a filthy thing to do.

    The other way works to and you are being kinder to the dog.

    I'm thinking if you used my method - you wouldn't ever have any mistakes when the door is open. Frosty has always gotten this right.

    So no punishment (or reward) for going outside, but some punishment for going inside - which probably isn't understood unless you happen to catch them in the act - is a slow way to toilet train.

    I admit toiletus interuptus did have a profound effect on my dog. Ie after the second one of these, she'd sit at the back door and bark to get my attention to let her out. I didn't scold her, I just yelled oi, grabbed her and carried her outside as fast as I could.

    Tahlz, you have no right to judge me with what i do, get over yourself and off your high horse. It is not disgusting, they never walked around with sh!t on their nose, they are indoor dogs (unlike your own) so the last thing i would want is them sitting on my couch with it on their nose! Good god!

    It is a form of training that i use - plain and simple, you don't like, don't read!!

    I don't have mistakes when the door is open, they are fully toilet trained.

    We did have trouble with Rexy when both me and my Mum had gone back to NZ for a week, we returned and my mother went straight on a P&O cruise, as soon as she came back i shot of to Thailand for two weeks I made the assumption it was because he was uncomfortable as his routine was all out of whack (not enough excercise, different feeding times etc) and he couldn't understand what was happening (all the comings and goings) when i did catch him the one time i saw him do it, i did not put his face in it because he knows it is wrong. I told him 'NO' 'OUTSIDE' and that was that, all was back to normal.

    I'm not on a high horse. I find it disgusting because it is. I know they don't walk around with sh!t on their nose.

    Um, first, my dogs are inside/outside dogs. Read properly. My dogs would prefer to be outside while I worked. They CHOOSE, did you read that, CHOOSE if they want to be inside or outside. Do your dogs choose to get their noses shoved in their urine? No. My dogs are not forced to be inside or outside, they can make their own choice. Some days they hate being inside so how is that fair to them when they are panicking to be outside and sometimes they panic to be inside, so, I let them in. The only time they are forced to stay outside is when I am in the house but thats because of my mums rules, not mine.

    That would be unfair to force them to stay inside/outside if they didn't want to.
