FAQ


I HOPE OUR LITTLE HINTS HELP YOU.  LET ME KNOW BY EMAILING ME.


Q:  WHY DOES MY PUPPY URINATE WHEN I COME HOME AND HE SEES ME FOR THE FIRST TIME?


A:  HE IS EXCITED TO SEE YOU AND USUALLY WHEN YOU SEE HIM THE FIRST THING YOU DO IS MAKE A HUGH FUSS OVER HIM.  THIS EXCITEMENT CAUSES THEM TO "HAPPY PEE."  YOU CAN HOW EVER CORRECT THIS PROBLEM BY SIMPLY IGNORING THE DOG OR PUPPY WHEN YOU FIRST SEE HIM ALLOWING THE DOG TO CALM DOWN.  THEN APPROACH THE DOG IN A CALM MANNER AND PET THEM SLOWLY.

Q:  HOW COME MY PUPPY GOES OUTSIDE TO THE BATHROOM,  GOES AND THEN GOES AGAIN WHEN HE COMES INSIDE THE HOUSE?

A:  PUPPIES WILL HOLD IT FOR A LONG TIME, GO OUTSIDE AND DO JUST ENOUGH TO ALLOW THEM TO RUN AND PLAY COMFORTABLY.  THEY THEN WILL COME IN THE HOUSE, RELAX AND COMPLETE THEIR BATHROOM DUTY IN YOU HOUSE.  THE WAY TO CORRECT THIS PROBLEM IS TO ALLOW THE PUPPY TO CONTINUE PLAYING.  ONCE HE STOPS PLAYING, WATCH TO SEE IF HE HAS TO GO AGAIN ONCE HE SETTLES DOWN.  GIVE HIM A FEW MINUTES BEFORE YOU DECIDE TO BRING THE PUPPY BACK INTO THE HOUSE. IF HE GOES AGAIN, THEN YOU KNOW YOU HAVE TO WAIT THAT PERIOD OF TIME ALLOWING HIM TO COMPLETE HIS DUTY.

Q.  WHY DOES MY DOG RUN AWAY FROM ME WHEN I CALL HIM? 

A.  YOU'RE PROBABLY CHASING OR TRYING TO CATCH THE DOG WHEN HE COMES IN CLOSE TO YOU.  IN HIS WORLD, THIS IS A GAME HE PLAYS WITH OTHER DOGS.

Q.  WHEN I GO TO PUT THE DOGS LEASH OR COLLAR ON, HE RUNS OFF WHEN I GO TO GRAB HIM.

A.  YOU JUST GAVE YOURSELF THE ANSWER.  YOU ARE VIOLATING THE TRAINING RULES WE SET.  BREAK THE TRAINING INTO PHASES.  RECALL AND PET YOUR DOG BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT TO PUT THE COLLAR OR LEASH ON HIM.
