Thread: How Do I Teach Her to POO Outside??

  1. #1

    Default How Do I Teach Her to POO Outside??

    So I asked about this at Puppy Preschool last night and didn't really get an answer...

    Poppy knows her toileting cue word as the cue word for wee's only! I guess unintentionally we have said it when doing wee's more than when she does poos. I think this is cause she wee's more than poo's! Lol!

    Anyway I have only 'caught' her pooing outside once since the weekend and said the new poo'ing cue word then. But how do I 'catch' her pooing outside more often? After I fed her tonight I spent AT LEAST 1/2 an hr outside with her. I ignored her, then I walked around on the grass hoping she would get the hint. She wee'd but thats it. We came back in, 2 mins later, surprise surprise theres poo on the tiles!

    Any ideas on how to encourage more poo'ing outside?

    With Batty I'd take him outside and stay outside until he did it. There are still days where he'll take the garage over the backyard too...

    I know it's frustrating and annoying (and caused endless arguements with hubby and I) but you really do have to stay outside with her until she has done both. If you don't see her do it you can't use it to your advantage.

    It's a pain in the butt but she will get there! She'll also have a good teacher here with Batty, he does get it right 95% of the time, I've learnt how to avoid him having the opportunity to go

    Worst case scenario, I can re-employ Rosie. She's a brilliant teacher for puppies!

    The longest I was outside with Batty was 2 hours. Sometimes playing can move things along a bit too so get her to run about for 5-10 mins with you in the backyard when she doesn't want to go then stop, calm things down and see how she goes. Hope this helps!

    Yep, leave her outside for longer. watch her at intervals, once she has done a poo outside, go out and give her lots and lots of praise! Then immeidately let her inside.

    get the picture, Amy? Just keep doing it.

    I thought that might be the answer! I was DETERMINED to not go inside until she poo'd out there but the mozzies started biting me and after Puppy Preschool last night I am COVERED in bites and didn't want anymore...I don't react well to them!

    Perhaps I need to employ the stand and ignore method? I was coaxing her onto the grass with treats and then practicing our "sit" and "come" so I guess that distracted her.

    Widdle widdle here means either wee or poo, whatever needs to be done. It is so cute, I say widdle widdle when they have been inside a while, let them out and they squat in perfect timing at times....like synchronised swimming.

    Di, that sounds adorable!

    Amy, Aeroguard tropical strength will become your best friend! I even have to spray it all over my feet.

    It takes time, consistency and patience for them to get it right every time.

    Our word is "do wees" for wees and poos. And now, they completely associate "do wees' with "mum and dad want us to go outside and do a wee/poo". So, for instance, at night we say to them "ok, time for bed, so let's go do wees" and they go to the door, wait to go outside & do their thing then come back and run and sit outside the gate at the bedroom
