Stepping in poop at 4am and other thoughts on potty training.
I stepped in a large pile of puppy poop in the middle of the night. That might have been the worst. It’s tied with the time when Lucy climbed into my lap and then peed all over my legs.
We had a hard time with potty training at first. We had a potty area set up on our concrete patio (remember, no grass allowed). But Lucy didn’t want to use it as a bathroom. What ended up working was a small fake grass patch. She went over to it immediately and peed. And then we gave her lots of treats.
She loved that fake grass patch. She would pee and poop on it. And then she would roll around on it. And chew it. It didn’t seem to matter to her that it was covered in pee.
In conclusion, puppies go to the bathroom a lot. And then they roll in that pee. And they do this many times a day. Puppies stink!
