    Arrow Puppy Lost Toliet Training.

    hm...Ok. Well here's the thing. Bonnie has started going to the toilet on the cement. She was trained for several months, certainly since we got her, and she's been fine ever since. Since we've been going back to school and uni, she's started doing it again. Now I know it's not because we haven't been around to tell her not to, because often in the holidays we would be away all day and nothing of that nature would have occurred. If I'm outside doing something, she obviously follows me around, but if she needs to do something, she'll just go where she pleases, and it's driving me nuts, because I have high standards! I always tell her NO very firmly and take her over to where she is supposed to do it. I don't want to have to retrain her, because she was doing just fine before. Also....um...the other day I saw her lift her leg. She's definitely not male, so I'm guessing it was just some little acrobatic move she was trying? She wasn't up against anything, just mid air....

    I've seen female dogs lift their legs, stand on their front legs only or just stand normally without squatting while peeing. I dont have an explanation for this, but I just figured that all dogs have their quirks

    Hey Striker, don't worry about her cocking her leg. That's not a problem. Problem is if she damned well then sits in it! Lol.

    Urine and faeces on cement are a yukky problem, and now she has probably started the smell-cycle of going there.

    Y1) You need to clean down the cement REALLY thoroughly. Not with ammonia or bleach or anything, but maybe a pressure cleaner or hard hose.

    2) Spray the concrete area with a mixture of white vinegar and water. Heck, if you've got a good sized bottle just pour the vinegar all over the concrete.

    3) If that doesn't work, try finding a shop near you who sell "Urine Off" or "Piss Off." They are both toilet-deterrent sprays that have been proven to have good success with stopping dogs/cats going in a certain area.

    All the best. Nothing worse than coming home to a dog who's crapped all over the cement driveway or pavers etc.

    Hm. Something I forgot to mention before, is that if Lou gets the runs (which she does often through eating grass), she annoyingly goes on the cement. It takes a hard hosing daily, which, apart from being disgusting, is an unethical waste of water. I don't know quite know how to stop her from doing this, especially when there are some bushes nearby (where she usually goes). Unfortunately, they are both starting to do .... ahem....'normal' ones on the cement. I caught her in the act today, and yelled at her harshly, which she hates, so that should discourage her from doing it there for a while. One of our family members says when she does it on the cement, she gets 'caught out' . I don't care. She can learn to do it on the grass or she's going to have to be tied up on the grass until she learns that is where to do it. How humiliating.

    Lady cocks her leg. I always get 'If she's a boy, why is her name Lady?'

    Hm, its a little strange she is going to the toilet on cement. Its usually done in the grass to avoid splash back. She obviously doesn't mind though!

    DA gave great suggestions.
