well what i have to say is that if your dog goes to the bathroom in the house tell him no and give him/her a little tap on the nose, dont worry it wont hurt them just train them. but if they go to the bathroom in the place you want them to say good boy/girl and give little treat(cheese,meat,hot dog,or regular treat) thats all i have to say to you but if you have any more ?'s just ask me and ill do my best to help.
Wow. Ummm....I already give them treats as incentive to get them to go potty in their spot. I don't tap noses because that will make them scared of me and they are only four months old and haven't learned to depend on me yet. If I spanked them they would associate people with bad things.
well ok then if their only four months i would suggest waiting awile if you can because my dog was about..........1 im not real for sure she is turning four this year and i just cant keep track of time. but about your dogs do you have a fence in your back yard thats how we trained my dog we put her outside and if she did her duty we would give her a treat. If you can just put them on a leash and take them outside and make sure they do their duty and if they do give them love pats and treats, and allways remember to say good girl/boy. thanks
