My Isabelle forgets each spring what soggy ground feels like, and acts like she's stepping in a pile of poo --- and hops back onto the sidewalk! So I act like I'm housebreaking her again... and wait until she REALLY has to go... before taking her outside. By then she's so focused on having to go, that she will walk onto the spongy ground and go. After the first couple days of spring, she's fine again with the soggy ground!

LOL, welcome to my world!  When you find out, let me know.  Sassy I can count on, Daisy not so much!  I'm out there yelling, "Daisy, go do your business."  One time the neighbor yelled, "For the love of God, Daisy, just pee and go inside."  It was rather embarrassing.  :0(

Bentley has now had the belly band on for the last few days as he thinks the couch corner is a good place to pee! I was thinking he might have a urinary tract infection but do know know? his pee is normal it just seems like he is marking alot right now and little pee comes out how do I tell is it is an infection or just him thinking he has his male bits still?

Mary, I had to do the tuff luv deal.  Put them out and find a spot that will give you good coverage of where they are and just watch till they do their thing.  After the first few times they will realize that the sooner they do their business the sooner they can come back in and resume the roles of Kings and Queens.

Lets face it Mary, Pugs are princes and so know it, only the best conditions do. Now Hektor has problems with snow as well cause he cannot smell other dogs. I put Hektor out this morning and he hung around the back door and he held on till after nine o'clock, just will not go in the garden, seems he has marked it that is enough.

Oh yes the dreaded wet grass!! Can you take them on a quick walk? If not you could toss some small training treats out to the grass bring them to the edge, give the a treat, then toss a good handful in the grass once they start sniffing they will prob go potty.

Good luck!

Mine get that way, but I am lucky that they do not go in the house, I amke them stay out til they go or let them in and back out within an hour or even before.

Can they go elsewhere outside, like in the street Mary. I find that Hektor is very unwilling to do in the Garden. He went when we first moved in but now he would rather hold it in than go and we do not have any grass presently so he is doubly unhappy. We find that if we walk him he will go and around here as ling as you clean up your dog can go in the street. I know things are different elsewhere though.

It could be because it is only their smells that they are bored. Only a guess.
