    @Tahli to toilet train mine I used to bring them outside every two hours on a lead to the same spot and give them a code word/phrase. I used to say do your puddles. Give them praise if they do and ignore them if they don't. Not like ignore them in a mean way but just don't react. Eventually we go to the stage where we would open the door and say do your puddles and they would run out and wee. If they wee in the house ignore them, don't let them see you cleaning it and use diluted laundry liquid. When dry I used to sprinkle area with soda bicarbonate.
    I want a doggie!! 🐶

    @Tahli - what Lolly said ... And also watch for him turning in little circles ... He'll do it just before he selects his spot to pee, scoop him up take him outside and wait till he goes outside (same spot is good) then praise him like crazy ... Can take a while cos you upset his rhythm by scooping him up but you get there in the end. Consistency and doggie brains will determine how long it takes - my German shepherd was onto it with 4 weeks, but she was a clever girl. My current cocker spaniel we got as a completely untrained adult dog and he's still unreliable - partly cos he's not that bright and partly cos he's just got a bit of attitude :-D. Good luck! Vinegar helps get the smell out ...

    Oh yes I forgot how naughty they can be. My max used to crawl into the fridge when I opened it up onto the bottom shelf. Plus they have razor sharp teeth. Maybe try giving him pigs ears to chew on as well or a really big bone. Just watch him with them though as he might still be a bit little. I used to give mine them and it kept them quiet for a while. I forgot about your wazza appoitment. I wish I was in Brisbane we could have met up. If my lining plays ball and I get to ET I might be there in June yet but I fly in and out on the same day. I can't wait to hear what wazza has to say for you I hope he offers you a great plan or at least a few tips and tricks.

He definitely helps with the washing, both creating it (today I'm washing 3 wool doonas from him peeing on them in the last 24 hrs) and pulling the lower hanging garments off the clothes horse. He wants to be held while I'm on the loo. Biting, chewing, barking, crying. He's ruling the roost.
    I rang the RSPCA to check out their puppy schools. I just need to work my qld dates out so I can figure out how to slot things together. I'm meant to be seeing Wazza on the 24th June. I'm also meant to be flying up to Noosa for a weeks holiday from the 27th June. I can bring forward my qld flight and stay in Brissy for an extra 3/4 days but 1.5wks is too long to leave puppy really.

    They were worth all the effort, the trauma, the near death experience and my current incapacitation 😊
