The Boss has been having quite a time recently helping you humans understand your pets toileting habits! So I thought I would give you some insider knowledge and give you a dog’s eye view on PEE and POO.
It’s not a big deal to us but it certainly seems to be to some of you humans….you want us to do it outside… then you want us to tell you when we need to go,…..you want us to do it in the same place all the time but some of you don’t want us to do it in the garden at all… then you want to feed us for doing it…phew we are confused.
I have a pal called Henry he is a Basset Hound now Henry is quite partial to an occasional mouthful of horse dung …. why not let him …. he really likes what the horse has been eating … seems really sensible to us dogs.
Can I let you into a secret…we dogs couldn’t care less where we toilet so if you humans want it outside we need to learn this. Try and be patient with us we really don’t understand why you shout at us for doing it inside and some of my pals have had their noses rubbed in it … What’s that all about?
Some of my more nervous and timid pals will leave a present (The Boss’s expression not mine) in the house near a door or a window when left on their own. Now they are not being naughty but they are scared with too much space and when they put their scent down it helps them feel safe to go to sleep. If you humans let them sleep in their own crate the toileting would stop. We dogs don’t like to mess our beds.
Now sometimes it is just plain old testosterone that acts up! My pal Jack is going to have lots of little Jacks one day so he likes to scent ALL over the furniture … keeps other boy dogs away… That’s so easy to sort but you won’t have any little Jacks around of course!
Puppies as you know I find a nuisance sometimes. They just want to be around you humans getting fussed and don’t want to go out on their own. I would let them eat outside and throw their dinner over the grass you will soon find they are much happier to do their stuff out side.
Why do you humans give puppies food for doing the toilet? They will toilet anywhere if they are going to get fed!!!!
So there you have it … a few tips about toileting from a dogs perspective
Hope it makes sense and helps you understand us better
