Toilet training your dog.

When a dog’s got to go, a dog’s got to go. That means as soon as he wakes up, a few minutes after every meal, and at regular intervals in between. His only concern is to do it away from where he eats and sleeps, and if that’s in your bedroom or behind the sofa, that’s OK by him. You would probably prefer it somewhere else, so you need to toilet train him. When he starts to ‘circle and sniff’, you don’t have a moment to lose. Get him outside to a convenient spot, tell him clearly what to do, then reward him with praise and a treat when he does it. Soon enough he’ll get the idea and give a bark or two to warn you – ignore this at your peril. Just make sure you're extra patient. Accidents will happen.
