Re learning the potty/apartment living update.

I have gracefully given up on pee pads and a newly bought potty patch, as per everyone's suggestion. Wilson just looks at them in confusing and holds it in till I break down a few hrs later and take him out as I mentaly tell myself that I am a good owner over and over. Your right, I should be happy with Wilsons need to only use grass, so thank you to everyone that posted and offered help or encouragement when I asked. So what if I have to carry him down flights of stairs more then twice a day so he can go? Really how is that harming me asides from forced exercise that I probably need? Dread dread dread winter time though, but me and the pup will cross that bridge when we come to it.

This apartment living is a new experience, I'll give you that. Wilson has just started to be calm and not bark like a dog gone crazy when he hears someone coming home next door. But maybe its cause he got tired of me, his mama, spraying him with a water gun when he goes into his crazy gunshoot barking modes. And yes, I do spray him but just for training purposes. If he barks and I te him ok thanks for the warning bark now stop, and he doesn't stop and completely loses himself in the barking then he gets water spritz at him. I'm kind of suprised that its been working. But enough blabber! Here's a cute Wilson picture.

Apartment living with a small dog is tough! We lived on the 3rd floor apartment for a while and it was difficult. I feel your pain!

Training dachsunds is quite difficult but when they are well trained they will remember. Probably, the balcony would the best place where he could do his potty. I grew up with 14 dachsunds. They are very good guard dogs.

Hi! Wilson Angus, Glad to catch up on your antics. We have to use the spray bottle at our house too. Two dogs set each other off. I wish I could say they were doing better. Alas, we are trying! What a cute picture of you!

Amy said...

Ahh, apartment living w/ a dachshund... nothing compares:) Jasper absolutely hates to go out when it's anything but warm & sunny outside, so the pee pee pads have been our friend. But he has never gotten the hang of letting me know WHEN he has to go, so again, thank goodness for the pads.

Good luck in your continued training, I hope things get better. The only thing I can say is the more you take him out, the better:)

At least he lets you know! We have two and they can be outside for hours only to come in and use the towel on the bathroom floor (we replaced the matt with a towel since this is their preferred spot)

We also bought "bark off" and it worked for the barking...I did a blog about it not too long ago.http://whathollyhasseen.blogspot.com/2011/07/silence.html

Apartment living it tough for humans, let alone dogs! Thankfully, Wilson looks like he will do alright. As for the taking him out twice a day; this is a blessing in disguise. It will allow you to get out as well and get some fresh air! Good luck with your new adventure!

Hi! Wilson Angus, We know you are busy and haven't blogged for awhile but we wanted to stop by and wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!

I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it
better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.
Maybe you could space it out better?
