    Default Problem

    So Dora pooed on my parents bed this morning and when Dad discovered it ten minutes later he grabbed her and rubbed her nose in it - she was so scared that she peed herself. I was not there (was at work) but my sister told it to me gleefully.
    What can I do to tell him that it is not acceptable to do this and that it doesnt even work? I was so angry at him - how would HE like it if someone rubbed his nose in his poo?
    Sorry this is more of a rant.

    I don't know Masha I'm sorry - I'm in the situation where the only people who have any say in our dogs are myself and my husband and we're on the same page. Don't feel bad though - Charlie wee'd on our bed the other morning, all over it. I'm going to have to get our doona dry cleaned *ugh*
    Maybe you could show your dad some books or other literature that proves that rubbing noses in it doesn't work? Will he listen if you sit him down and calmly explain why it doesn't work and that he is only causing more problems for you?

    Hehe when my dad was a kid he had to share a bed with his younger brother (not much money back then!). His brother had a habit of wetting the bed. So one day Dad got so fed up he grabbed his brother and rubbed his nose in it LOL.

    I didn't even know it didn't work (then again, most of my family is pretty... "traditional" in terms of training methods)? The one and only time Leo pooed in my room, I rubbed his nose in it, and he never did it again. Not defending- just going on from my experience. I know that I wouldn't do it again since I know better -.- But I didn't terrify my dog like your father seemed to.

    Your comment makes your family sound almost... malicious towards Dora?

    My parents don't believe anything they read about dogs. My mum thinks that giving a dog affection while it's scared/fearful is the right way to go. She gives Dora affection at the wrong times - when shes barking crazily, when shes hyperactive, etc. I've tried to tell her that NO, this isnt right, but she doesnt listen.
    Mum also took Dora out for a walk the other day - yes, the same mum who doesnt give a **** about if Dora pulls in front or not - and did end up letting Dora pull in front... ruining what progress I ahd made It's frustrating - this dog was bought for me, yet mum and that man (who I refuse to call my father) insist on doing everything... wrongly.

    Sounds like you need to sort out your issues with your family before working on their relationship with Dora..

    Just my sister. Mum and... father are quite traditional about training as well. Thing is, I bet it WOULD work if Dad did it straight after she pooed, NOT ten minutes after. I've read that if you dont do it straight away, the dog wont relate the poo to the actual act of pooing.
