    Ah Ha!

    Well if you're up for a challenge...you're absolutely right. Dogs are labeled as bad, but no one ever tried to teach them good. At least, if you and Robert try to make a go of it, you will know you did your best if it just didn't work. Is it possible for you to try the house-training suggestions? I'm not suggesting tying her up or crating all day, only if she does not go outside or after 2 hrs loose to teach her that she can hold it. If she's never been in a house, she really has no idea that she can resist the urge. Do you have a dog crate?
    I was thinking, If she's too much for you to leash walk, maybe a short tie out cable (say 10 ft) that you could hook her to right close to the door rather than holding the leash? Still stand out there to be ready to reward and unhook her as soon as she does her potty?
    Or, do you have anything you could fashion into a "pen" to put her in till she goes?
    Wish I lived up the road, I love a challenge too.

    K. Here's a couple links for potty training

    Leyla ! so nice to hear from you . I miss you much. I know being a mod . is a ton of work. hows the ol man? I hate shopping with a passion ! grocery, clothes, dont matter. I rather not.
    You kill yourself shopping walking through those big stores, pay way more then its worth, come home and put it all away, spend the time cooking it then POOF gone in 60 seconds and your left with another big mess. I cant wait for the day pizza hut or just anyone will start delivery in my area ! [​IMG]

    congrats danna ! I hope you love it !
    Mutt, thanks for the links. the ASPCA was very nice. while reading i thought if I take her for a walk and ask Robert to come with, in case I cant. maybe he will like it and decide he will give it a go. after I "decide" I cant do it. LOL

    Random thought: do y'all think having a boy dog around will be a better coyote deterrent than the girl dog?

    You're welcome granny. I feel a little stuupid. It took me a bit to type it all out and find my links to try to help you after I got back on, I hit submit, and this dog training dissertation of mine dropped onto the page right in the middle of a grocery shopping discussion. Awkward...I felt like a [​IMG] that should [​IMG] X10!
    Hi @TwoCrows [​IMG] Has it cooled off over there yet? It's a nice cool 98 here today. I would rather scrub the kennels with a toothbrush than buy groceries. (If I do that, I always fantasize that it's my ex-es). My own fault, I wait till there is nothing to make anything out of, then it's a day long project at the commissary and putting it all away.
