LOL! We posted simultaneously.Bob Scott said:The image of the Standard Poodle is nothing what the real dog is. I think a well bred, sound one is a dog that could do pretty much what you want it to. JMHO!
If anyone does (and I don't :lol: , because I think it's a bad plan to train dogs to go indoors), can you PM Susan?susan tuck said:Does anyone have any housetraining tips for toy breed pups I can pass on to a gal who has two 12 wk old cavalier/pug mix puppies? They are crated at night & don't soil the crate. During the day, they are confined to the kitchen & pee & poop all over it. I suggested she confine them to a smaller area during the day, & also wahtch them more closeley & when they show signs of having to go, to put them on the paper, then praise them when they eliminate. She doens't think this will work, so I thought maybe someone on this board may have better ideas I can pass on.
Her goal is to have them use a litter box in the house rather than training them to go outside.
