I have two dogs at home ,one springer and one cross.The problem i have is that there is droppings everywhere.The springer does his business in the same spot all the time .The problem is its not an ideal spot .its very near the back door.The other girl does hers everywhere.Can anyone suggest a method to move them to a more convenient spot (for me).Short of building a pen and locking them in i am stumped.I have an acre and a half of grass with the acre farthest from the house in pristine condition and the bit that we would like to sit in destroyed .Please help Sad

I have 3 springers and same story, they will do their business right at the back door. ( over 8 acres available) Anyway what i do is feed them and the sec they finished I bring them for a walk up the field. All 3 of them usually go within a min or two. A few my mates do same and 90% of time it saves the hassle of cleanin up....

I have an english setter and a german shepherd same problem. What I did was move some of their pooh to the designated toilet area and as they make their little mistakes around the yard remove it immediately and disinfect the area with jeyes fluid. This confuses the scent when I saw them with the nose to the ground looking for the scent I would drag them to the toilet area and praise and reward them for poohing in the right spot. It's time consuming and head wrecking but you will eventually know when a dog is about to go by their demeanour and a word of warning will suffice. I no longer need to supervise and havent had an accident in well over six months. Please note it took a good three months to train the two of them. Best of luck.

Thats normal, my setter will pooh up to ten times a day and the german shepherd would rival any pony for sheer volume Laughing Laughing

After a dozen years of enduring the reality of a Golden Retriever's pooh in a fairly small suburban garden, I swore never,ever again would I have a large dog.
Now I have an acre and the occasional fun and company of two small Jack Russell-type terriers that belong to neighbours.....a perfect solution!

No, you're right!!!! I keep calling it an acre and Himself keeps correcting me and saying we have more ! I like the sound of "an acre". Having moved from suburbia, it feels exactly like " a big acre" to me.....so you must indulge my quirks......!!!

If you train your dog you'll have no problem.

You can take him/her anywhere
