    I use the same word for both. And when Frosty was tiny, I'd hang round outside with her despite the barrage of mozzies until we got both.

    My word was sh'tnapiz - covers most everything except an upchuck. It does make my neighbours giggle.

    You do need to be boring and don't practice anything while you're waiting. You could maybe do something the dog can't help with like watering all the pot plants and keeping an eye on puppy, or a bit of weeding the garden - beware the puppy who likes to help with the digging though. Or now's the time to catch up on some dog training podcasts.

    So I think I figured it out! Something the vet said on Monday night at Puppy Preschool and what Poppy did this afternoon just made it CLICK!!!

    We go out, say "Quick Quick", she wee's, we do huuuuge "Good Girls", pats and treat then come inside, a few minutes later she wonders off, we go out to find poo's!

    So this arvo we did the first half BUT when she went to wonder off we went outside again! And ta dah!!! She poo'ed!!

    The vet mentioned that puppies have short attention spans! So we are taking her out, she wee's we make a big deal come inside and its only THEN she realises she needs to poo too!

    Just had to share my revelation!

    Sorry! I thought you already knew that or I would have explained it ages ago!

    I usually stay outside until Batty does both, praise him lots for the wee then wait and be boring again until he poops.

    I have a cheats way of telling when he needs to poop though... His tail kinks a little about 2.5 inches down Every single time about 5 mins before he really needs to go his tail will kink!

    So glad you've had it click though!

    Something that really set it in concrete for Batty was having Rosie around, hopefully the combination of both Batty and Rosie going outside for both will help it sink in for Poppy?

    Haha! Silly me! I guess I just didn't think!!!

    I hope having the two older good influences helps it sink in for Pop's! It can be like an intensive poo'ing school! Haha! Although she has been pretty good lately! OH said he left the the door open all day for her and she went in and out as she needed! No accidents inside!

    Max was 5 months today - how quickly time flies!!! I'm also still having toilet training problems. In the mornings he's great. We go out for "wee wees" and "poo poos" and he usually does a couple of each within about 10 mins of being out.

    The evenings are hit and miss. He'll duck behind the sofa and before I can stop him he'll do his wee. Tonight though, we were outside for nearly an hour after his walk (which we do as soon as I get home from work) and he wouldnt go so I assumed he'd been before I got home. Anyway, soon as we walk inside wees and poo's on the floor!! He's been outside most of evening now playing but I'll sit out with him before bed to make sure he goes.

    I now have a spray bottle filled with a mixture of vinegar, wool mix and water to spray on his accidents as soon as they happen. The mop hasnt made it into the cupboard for a while lol

    The key is to get him outside BEFORE the accident happens. 5 months and he's still not toilet trained is a bit of a worry, I must admit.
    Do you know what to look for when a pup/dog is about to go to the toilet? Are you watching him every second he's inside?

    Right now I have 4 puppies inside the house all asleep on the dog bed surrounded by carpet.

    The second they wake up they will be led outside. Because of their age they are guaranteed to need to go the minute they wake up.

    I'm doing this because one is about to go on a plane.

    The key to toilet training is not to let them in unless you want to watch them.

    I'm sitting here typing and they are a few feet from me. The second they get up it's all out.
