We potty trained in August,it was convenient for us, less work and warmer weather! Our girl was 2 and a bit!
I was dreading it, I was going in with no preparation and no experience. But it went surprisingly easily and with the desired result! Within 2 weeks we were reliably able to go out with no nappies and no accidents!
I really expected to have a battle, and maybe we just got the timing spot on, whatever the reason we are lucky! We have the odd accident, but it is quite rare!
However, she has a weird obsession with pooping outside. I think this may come from the fact that we are outside in the woods most mornings, so if she has to go she has to go! Or maybe she just likes the breeze on her bum! Who knows! The thing that gets me is sometimes she’ll do half her poop on her potty, then leg it up the garden to do the rest!
I’ve had to learn to keep the back door locked (not hard now it’s cold outside!), else she will take herself up the garden to poop! Then get very excited and find it utterly hilarious when needy dog starts to eat it – which happens every time without fail!
