OK, if string cheese doesn't work then we go for liverwurst! Thank you for the tip.

Great post, Buddy'sParents!

Persistance and patience (and ability to funtion on less sleep for a few weeks) are the cornerstones of good puppy raising.

Valentines of poop!

I woke-up this morning and there was no pee anywhere. I've been taking them out every two hours. On top of that, they're telling me when they need to go. They make a whine, different from their other whines, and they start looking anxious. I scoop-up the pup and run out the door and voila! Poop!

It's pretty amazing!

The only thing I've changed is limiting the newspaper area on the floor and withdrawing food at 7pm and water at 10pm. Last time out is 2am and then another out at 5am. They had one newspaper pee, but every time I take them out, they pee. They like the bologna and today Tweeter had success in learning recall! I called him from outside and with constant calling and waving bologna at him, he followed without hesitation. Boomer isn't as consistent. He likes to stay in the kitchen and investigate. It probably helps that it's so **** cold out, but I'm not complaining. I'm just blown away by how far they've come in just 3 days.

I haven't been able to get out yet because the plow guy hasn't shown-up and the roads are ice, but I'll be buying the second crate as soon as I can get out.

You think they got up in the night and read this thread?

Congrats on a 'only one pee on the paper day' ! Sounds good.

Great they are starting to take food from you-- not sure I'd want my recall cue to be "constant calling and bologna waving" though

Great that they are whining to go out and you are able to discern the different whines-- that will sure help speed the process along.

Kudos !!! Is your bed close enough for you to hear them during the night ?? Maybe they're ready to sleep longer .

My bed is literally 10 feet away. They're penned in the master bathroom. The bath area has an extra wide entry, no door, and is extra large as it was designed for a disabled person. I've moved the computer and desk area in the bedroom as well so I'm with them nearly all day and have them in direct line of sight.
