We got a new puppy a few weeks ago. He was about 2 1/2 months at the time. Was very timid and shy at first, but warmed up to us nicely. Very playful and intelligent. Didn’t take him long to poop in the corner.....Grabbed him by the head (my Dad showed me this when I was a kid) rubbed his nose all in it, threw him outside. That was the LAST time he pooped or peed in the house. Now he trots over to the front door, tail wagging’, and promptly walks around out to the yard, does his business. We reward him with treats and love. He goes before night night, and first thing in the morning when I take him out of his crate. We are blessed I suppose.
