    1. Depends on your vet.
    2. Depends on the school!

    The puppy schools (from my experience) usually cost from $100-$120, but some could be cheaper/more expensive. It varies.

    Can you give me a ball park figure?

    Masha - thanks for that info!

    Oh and Q # 3.... Poppy has only gone to the toilet once since we got home at about 7pm. We have take her out 3 times and she hasn't wee'd or poo'd! She is now asleep in our ensuite ... should I wake her and take her out again before I go to bed?

    Definately take her out before bed. When you put her out are you staying with her or just leaving her there? I can't do ballpark figures I'm sorry - we take our 2 at the same time so it's always just expensive lol. And I can't remember!!

    Just take her out into the yard where you want her to do her 'business' before going to bed. Stand around, do not play with her, talk to her or make eye contact. Just tsnad still like a staute - in other words be very dull and boring. Give here a while, but if she's not going to go, well she's not going to go! Lol.

    Vaccinations usually cost around the ball park figure of $50+. Some are more than others, some might charge you $68, some less. Look, it depends on your vet and the vaccination given.

    Same with puppy school. You are asking for a ball park figure that can range from one extreme to the other - as others have pointed out, the costs differ greatly depending where you live, who is running them, what they offer... .

    Good luck.

    Thats ok C&B Mum!

    When I take her out I am staying with her...standing on the grass and encouraging her to be on the grass too. She whined a bit the first time we were out on the grass but sniffed around then just sat down at my feet. Third time I carried her out, stood on the grass, placed her down, gave her a verbal command (I saw this in a training video, that if you say the same thing each time you want them to go toilet then it helps toilet train them) and she circled my feet then went back inside leaving me outside! Haha!

    Verbal commands are good (ours is "do wees") but it's important you only say it when she's actually doing her business for now, so she associates the word with the action to start with, then eventually it can become a command. Do as DA said - don't look at her, don't talk to her, don't move - and be prepared to stand there for a very long time. When she does go, act like it's the most awesome, exciting thing in the whole wide world! Give her HUGE "good girls" and pats or a treat.
