It was raining when I woke up this morning. Doesn’t bother me, but it does make my dog want to stay indoors – even if he needs to pee or poop. So what are some good ways to get your dog to go out even for a minute?
Take him on a walk – My dog can’t help it. He loves his walks and has to pee on everything. This works every time.
Get a large umbrella – Step outside with her with a large umbrella over both of you.
Doggie Raincoat – If you put clothes or coats on your dog anyway, why not try a doggy raincoat? I’ve even seen them with little hats to keep the rain out of their eyes.
Indoor Pads – Yup, you can train your dog to pee indoors in specified areas.
Positive Reinforcement – This is my easiest standby. If he knows he will get a treat or even praise my dog is much more likely to risk getting his fur wet to run out and do his business.
Just a few ideas for those rainy days. Have fun and good luck!
