    Update. Last night when I went to bed I was feeling hot, so it occurred to me to open the door a bit. So I left it open about 2 feet, next thing I know, Inca has gone outside and laid down on the side deck.

    I heard her come back in a couple of times, wander around the bed checking us out, then she went outside again.

    Lol. How ironic.

    Thanks all, feel much better.

    I'm so glad it is all working out. She is figuring out for herself that outside is more comfortable for her, but still has the opportunity to re-assure herself that she is not alone.

    One of the big benefits to toilet training the big breeds is that their bladder can hold a lot more, they don't care if there is wet grass on their bare tummies. Etc.

    Thanks for that comment MAC.

    I've never in my life seen a GSD puppy at this age go as long as she does between urinating!

    lol if she's anything like my big boy, she'll follow you and sit right in front of the cuboard you need to get into then move to in front of the fridge, then in front of the sink. I swear Griffen does it just to annoy me.

    Glad to hear things are going well.

    She's still pretty bad with using her body-weight against the bathroom door if I'm in the shower or on the loo. And as we are renovating this house and all the new internal doors have just gone on, that's NOT a good thing.

    Hubby joked yesterday that I really should just go to the toilet outside, then she wouldn't carry on. Smart-arse - just cause he could if he wanted to!

    That will get better of course once she has gets used to little periods away from me each day.

    Gemma was the same and considering the amount of water she drank it always amazed me.

    Having said that the whippets are pretty good too, by four months old they go the entire night and I still have to kick them out of bed in the morning (especially if it's cold) because I'm thinking any minute now they are going to bust.
