Yes! I have read books, websites, talked to friends, vets, animal gurus and have come to the conclusion that my dog is the ant-book dog.
Here's what I mean...Everything the books and articles say that puppies should and shouldn't do Gracie does the exact opposite. Go figure!
Before I got Gracie I read a book on Shih Tzus, countless articles on potty training, crate training, how long to leave her in the beginning and the list goes on and on. I wanted to be such a good puppy owner...FAIL.
The books say she won't use the restroom where she sleeps WRONG!!
The book says to put them in a small confined area while gone...well that is great but my dog is Houdini and knows how to unzip the doggy door, and "marks her territory" all over my mom's house!
This potty training stuff is for the birds. But each time I get upset I see this face and my heart melts all over again.
