EBD029 How I Taught My Dog To Pee In The House

I accidentally taught my dog to pee in the house. How did I fix it? Tune in and find out!

If we’re not willing to laugh at ourselves sometimes, things won’t be that great!

Laughing at myself and my ineptness as a dog trainer – then sharing that with the world – way more fun. Who doesn’t need a little humility to keep things in balance?

In this episode I confess that I taught my dog to pee in the house! It wasn’t done purposefully, and it took an alarming amount of attempts from Sue to show me the error of my ways!

What I thought was a loving glance from my beautiful dog, and a connection we shred staring into each other’s eyes was actually her telling me that she needed to go! It wasn’t the most obvious of signs, and once I figured it out, Sue had a few more surprises waiting for me!

How did we sort it all out? Click play and tune into the episode to learn about my approach to correcting my mistake!
