Potty Training/Crate Training

Post by Money » Wed, 21 Sep 2005 01:51:37



I recently purchased a 4 month old English Bulldog, female.  While she is
an awesome girl in terms of temperment, etc, she does not know when or
where to go to the bathroom.

I've gotten a medium sized crate for her, put the divider up so she only
has room to turn around and lay down.  I take her for MANY walks, but she
just wont go.  Then, when we're in the house, she does.  Any suggestions?

Also, any helpful bulldog tips are always welcome too.

THANKS!

Sorry, but my suggestion is the obvious one: Patience, stay with
her until she goes, no matter how long it takes, and reward her
when she does.  The next time will be shorter.

That'll condition the dog to NEED many walks a day.

Quote:

Dogs won't relieve themselves in front of
their owners if they've been PUNISHED for
housebreaking mistakes.

Quote:
> >   Then, when we're in the house, she does.

That could be an attention getting device OR
it could be that they won't relieve themselves
in front of their abuser.

Quote:

Yeah, FORGET EVERY THING these lying dog abusing
mental cases tell us to do to our dogs.

Quote:
> Sorry, but my suggestion is the obvious one:

The dog won't learn to relieve on himself
on commmand in two minutes flat, like that.

Quote:
> no matter how long it takes,

Takes WON DAY to housebreak a dog, matty.

Quote:
>  and reward her when she does.

And bring IT back inside immediately so
IT can finish relieving hisself.

Quote:
> The next time will be shorter.

Not if you return inside as soon as she goes...

Oh, well we wouldn't wanna be UNFAIR to HOWER dogs

Dogs HOWEsbreak INSTINCTIVELY at four weeks
of age, matty. Actually three weeks, but they
can't CON-TRAIN themselves to make it MOORE
than a few feet away from their livin area.

Quote:

No matty. Dogs SHIT their HOWESES ONLY for TWO REASONS:

1. THEY'RE SICK.

2. THEY'RE UNHAPPY.

Quote:
> the dog doesn't live in the house because

Dogs MESS their HOWESES on accHOWENT of they're
EITHER SICK or UNHAPPY, matty. If the dog AIN'T
SICK HE DON'T WANT TO BE THERE and THAT'S HOWE
COME he SHITS IN THE BOSS'S HOWES, so PUTTIN IT
HOWET is a REWARD, not a PUNISHMENT, matty.

bizby40 GOT THE SAME PROBLEM, matty. REMEMBER?
Her husband is abHOWET ready to THROW HER HOWET
with her *** dog. She's SLEEPIN IN ANOTHER
ROOM on accHOWENT of she's takin the dog HOWET
ALL NITE LONG and locks IT in a box and ties IT
to a leash attached to her belt when IT AIN'T
LOCKED IN A BOX JUST LIKE HOWE she was TOLD TO
DO by you and your LYING DOG ABUSING MENTALLY
ILL PALS, matty.

THAT will DISAVAIL the dog of DEVELOPING SELF CONTROL,

That's a WHOLE LOTTA WORK, FOR NUTHIN, matty.
DOGS HOWESBREAK INSTINCTIVELY if you don't
***WITH THEM like HOWE you do, matty.

DOGS ARE NOT BUILT TO BE LOCKED IN BOXES and SCHEDULED.

You mean, they'll NEED TO CONTINUE THAT SCHEDULE.

THAT'S INSANE.

AIN'T THAT GONNA VIOLATE YOUR CONSISTENCY, matty?

THAT'LL MAKE THE DOG ANXXXIHOWES, matty.

You'll be standin HOWEtside FOREVER, matty.

You mean TEACH the dog that he can command 100%

THAT'S AN OXYMORON, matty. HOWE can you SAY THAT???

THAT'S INSANE. It'll take abHOWET TWO HOWERS to
HOWEstrain ANY puppy by simply doin EXXXACTLY
OPPOSITE of HOWE you abuse dogs, matty.

That so, matty? DOGS ONLY MESS THEIR HOWESES
when they're SICK or UNHAPPY, matty.

Hey? You know what? It's LUCKY that YOU ARE A
PROFESSIONAL DOGGY DAY CARE PROVIDER and TRAINER.

Ain't that correct, matty? DO YOU NOT HAVE A VESTED
INTEREST in MISLEADING people so you can SELL THEM
YOUR SERVICES, matty? Does your doggy day care center
have LICENSING PERMITS and INSURANCE as a BUSINESS,
matty? DO YOU DECLARE TAXES on your INCOME, matty?

You're a FRAUD A LIAR A DOG ABUSER A COWARD and MENTAL CASE.

Think so? PERHAPS she should TRAIN her dog?

LIKE THIS:

  lyinglynn writes to a new foster care giver:
  For barking in the crate - leave the leash on and
  pass it through the crate door.  Attach a line to it.
  When he barks, use the line for a correction.

 - if necessary, go to a citronella bark collar.

Sorry, I don't have any bulldog tips for you.  Make sure she has
enough room in her crate to lie down stretched out without being
squashed.
So she's not peeng in her crate but when she's loose in the house?
Dogs sometimes don't feel confident enought to pee and poo outside and
prefer to wait until they are "safe" at home.  If you've not had her
very long, she might still be feeling unsettled.
Watch her like a hawk when she is not in her crate , keep her tethered
to you if necessary. Don't tell her off if she has an accident inside
, praise her if she goes outside.
 Clean up any accidents inside with an enzyme cleaner to remove any
smell of urine, chekc with a black light for any accidents you might
have missed. HTH
