Leo the Piddler

Leo the Piddler

Like I mentioned in Leo vs Potty Training Pt. 1, Leo has been pretty good about not going in the house, and we’ve pretty much stopped carrying him from our door to the potty spot. Although, since everything seems to be one step forward, two steps back, I wasn’t surprised to see Leo piddle for the first time. It goes like this: Leo sees people. People see Leo. Leo starts […]

Leo vs Potty Training Pt. 1

Remember the endless articles I mentioned in the first post? About half of them were related to potty training. The gist of the articles combined was consistency, routine, controlled water intake, and endless potty breaks, so that’s what we set out to do. Our plan was to take Leo out immediately after meals and about every hour that he was awake. Every time we took him out, we set him […]

We put the crate in our bedroom at the foot of the bed and played a Soothing Dog Sounds playlist from Spotify all night. We filled the crate with a snuggle […]

These four-legged officers, such as the dogs of the Pasco Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit, work hard every day to keep our neighborhoods and families safe and secure.
