Minnie now tells us when she has to pee/poop, I'm the one failing at it!

    Ugh! TWICE today Minnie ran down the hall, yelped, scratched at the door, but I was too late because I was busy. Yes, I'm tired, no excuses. Poor Minnie! She's catching on and I thought she could wait another minute because I was busy. Work ends on Friday and it will be easier but she's now TELLING us and we need to listen- I'm just venting. It's hard working full time and raising a puppy, and if I wasn't working she would be completely housetrained by now, I'm convinced! Okay rant over. She's so fun and so adorable and we love her and I am pretty sure she loves us- I race home from work and take the dogs on a variety of excursions so Minnie can experience road walks and trail walks, visits to stores. Puppy class and this Wednesday we have a play date with another sheltie owner near by. I'm tired! :gaah:lol:

    Way to go Minnie!! Cooper is on Day 17 no accidents in the house. Some of it is a well trained Mom & Dad, but other times he runs to the door comes back and stares at you. He still thinks the bells on the door are a toy and something to bark at....maybe someday!!! I can’t even imagine potty training and working, the fact that she has caught on says you are doing a great job!!

    Wow, what a good girl.

    I had a shocking time house training Mr D when I was working. He was pooping indoors until he was about 6mths, actually I think it was Tully who toilet trained him. Thankfully Tully came toilet trained (and I installed a dog door)

    What a good and smart little Minnie! Now, if we could just train mom!

    Just kidding! Don’t beat yourself up! I am sure Liam was potty trained in 4 months because I work from home!

    You guys are doing wonderfully!
    Enjoy that little spitfire Minnie!

    Thanks, I'm so obsessed with Minnie not peeing in the house that I am peeing all the time myself!

    those were the times that I had problems.....
    would be with friends and say- I have to use the bathroom, watch the puppy...... inevitably no one watched the puppy and the puppy would pee wherever we were.....:gaah:rolleyes2:

    Cassie had no accidents last week. She has made up for it this week. Of course, it might not have been her. It's been raining all week, so we've had to almost (and at times actually) throw Clarabelle outside to get her out of the house.
