    I know we don't usually agree but bloody hell Clea I'm with you! The one time I ever saw my nanna rub an animal in it's poo scarred me for life, God knows how the poor cat felt!
    Peta did it occur to you that Boss doesn't poo in the house anymore because he's afraid of your reaction?

    And Masha, protect this dog from your family! Especially the sister who gleefully views this stuff.

    Little story

    There was a man who bought a puppy. The puppy pooped in the kitchen so the man got mad and threw it out the window. Luckily they were on the ground floor. The dog pooped in the kitchen again the next day and the man repeated his action. He did this for 5 days. On the 6th day the dog pooped in the house and jumped out the window.

    Food for thought?

    I think Peta was being sarcastic.

    I really think that it was not the right time for to get a dog. Did you know the stand your parents were going to take? Did you know this was how they would be training your dog? Did you know that they were going to interfere?

    I think you need to be respectful but you need to talk to your parents and set them straight on where you stand. Do you pay for everything to do with Dora? Will you be paying for any vet fees? If so then she really is your dog and you need to state this.

    I had no idea that my parents would take this stand. I talked to them before we got Dora and they seemed to agree with me... apparantly not any more. I pay for everything I can... food, treats, collar etc. Everything but the vet.

    It didn't teach the dog ANYTHING...except there is a reaction (out the window)...to an action (poop the floor)!

    Dora poop on bed (action)...pee after having nose rubbed in it in fear (reaction)!!!

    I really don't know what to say - you are between a rock and a hard place. At the end of the day they are your parents but Dora is also your dog. You are going to have to work out some way to mediate this otherwise your parents may get sick of the stress and therefore perhaps rehoming Dora.

    I don't understand..Just to clarify, do you approve or disaprove of the action? Not judging or arguing, just curious.

    Look...I might come across blunt here, but I need to say this.

    Maybe it is not such a good idea to keep Dora there. It is obvious it is creating problems and those problems will be detrimental to Dora, because she will pay the price for them...if you understand. Dogs feel energy and pick up on our energy. If she is in a household where she is not wanted...she can feel this...she can pick up on the negative energy.

    If it is not a united, happy household for Dora...then I am sorry to say this, but not in HER best interest to be there! I have to say...I have some issues with a young person being solely responsible for the training and socialisation of a puppy.

    I am not saying this to hurt your feelings...I am purely thinking of this from Dora's point of view. How can she ever become balanced and happy, if she has to put up with that garbage?!?
