    well u are the one saying that Boss is scared of me. At the time it worked. We only had to do it once. So yes i approved of it at the time but after being on this website i have learnt some things about training a dog..

    At least i have the guts to state what training methods we used with Boss and i know they are different but its worked with him..

    like i said before people train their dogs different ways... not every dog is the same, the same goes with human....

    I just asked a question.

    And Masha, I really hope everything works out for you and Dora. I know you are doing a wonderful job training her, but if your parents aren't..Well...What Clea said.

    Yeah you did...What's your point?

    I think this thread needs to focus on Masha and Dora.

    I have always not rubbed nose in but taken them to it, nose near it so they get the scent and a NO. Then the dog has been taken outside. Ideas change over time, just because someone is old school does not mean they are bad. Whilst I do not do it I do think it gets the point across. Many people do unknowingly try to calm a pet when they are afraid, this is a natural human reaction. If you can find more articles on the net..not opinions from people, maybe the weight of argument will sway them.

    Baby rearing has changed a lot over time and many ideas are outdated now. Ask your mum did she do baby rearing as her own mother did or did she pay attention to new books and ideas that had come about since her mother raised her. Link it back then to dog raising and she may listen.

    I'm just wondering how we can prevent a repeat toileting mistake from happening.

    I spoke to one lady at dog training who was having trouble with her dog crapping in the house, and I asked her what she did, and she said "rubbed the dog's nose in it" and I said "how's that working for you" - because it obviously wasn't, the dog kept crapping in the house.

    What I'd be worried about here is that Dora will poo there again and your father will be rightly - angry again - I'd be mad as hell if my dog pooed on my bed.

    So Masha, you need to take steps to prevent it from happening.

    How did Dora get into parent's bedroom?
    Did Dora get a morning walk?
    Did Dora get breakfast?
    Did you make sure that Dora did a 1 & 2 outside before you left for work?
    Where does Dora go when you're at work?

    Do you have your own bedroom?
    Can you get a Crate for Dora and keep her in your bedroom when you're at work?

    For starters - I'd make sure Dora got a 30 minute walk and goes to the toilet before you go to work and no breakfast - to reduce the chance of her needing to go to the toilet while you are at work.

    If you can, have a crate for Dora somewhere safe from the sun etc, and put her in there while you are at work. It's not ideal but it's ok to crate a dog to keep it safe while you are at work, and they should be able to hang on for 12 hours or so, but if Dora can't at least she won't go on your parent's bed.

    I'd be offering to do all the washing up (I HATE washing up) for a week (or something that would please your father) to atone for Dora's indiscretions.

    The crate is a great idea, Hyacinth. Thing is, Mum think's its cruel, no matter how hard the trainer from puppy school tried to convince her the opposite. Dora pooed in the morning before I went to work, so I was surprised that he pooed again one/two hour later. My parents insist on giving her full reign of the house (yet again, they dont get that this is my dog, and Id like for my rules to apply) so that's how she got in their room. Since Im only 15 and I work at maccas, they're short shifts, 3.5-4.5 hours, so most of the time someones at home with Dora to take her out.

    Masha

    The whole deal must be so frustrating for you.

    Did Dora get a walk in the morning too?

    Trouble is after you go to work - the only person left to let her out is your Dad and they don't get along so well, so Dora needs to be really enthusiastic about sleeping.

    Do you get your way if you chuck a big screaming yelling crying temper tantrum? Because I'd be considering this right now...

    Me too.... especially since you're probably too young to move out!

    Masha do your parents go to puppy school with you? Could you get the teacher to have a word with them??

    Mash, I am probably even older than your mum, I thought a crate was cruel too, till I realised it is really only an inside kennel, door left open mostly or closed only at times for security. Try the words inside kennel.
