Default Going Out?

My only one that really indicates she needs to go out to the toilet is Lula But she will stand and stare at the door for awhile before she grumbles. Iz and Margs just stand and stare, nothing else. Do yours let you know in a better way?

LOL! That's one of the main reasons why I'm such an advocate of dog doors...although I am constantly throwing out sticks, pine cones, and everything else they can bring in...guess it's a trade-off.

Bella sits at the door for a minute and then cries if no-one has noticed her.

You get approx 2 minutes before she goes "you had your chance and you blew it"

Nice puddle to clean up!

We are thinking about a dog door. But I wonder if it's too late for these ladies - they'd do the same at the dog door - probably waiting for us to flap it open for them.

Really think you should get one...you'd be amazed at how your life becomes easier. My kids bring their dogs over who don't have one and they have taken right to it. I really can't imagine not having one.

When Yogi was a puppy I trained him to ring bells that I had hanging on the door. Eventually I took the bells away. What he does now is walk to the front door and if you ignore that he will walk to the back door. He will keep that up until you let him out!
Now, if it's during the night and we are upstairs he gets off the bed and cries until I wake up. I believe he learned that from when he was still in the crate as a puppy because he would cry in the night or early morning to let me know he needed to go out.

They go & sit by the back door, then if I haven't noticed come & sit beside me with a certain look on their face if I still haven't got the message they walk away turn back & come & nudge by legs.

I love my dog door. I door trained them and I don't know if they could hold it for hours now.

Imho that is one of the major stumbling blocks of house training, Which is why most do better teaching a descrete behavior for this on of the easiest being

Maddie asks to go out. She will go to the door, and if you don't come to let her out after a minute or so, she will bark quietly, and if that doesn't work, she will stand in the doorway of the room where the outside door is and stare at you, woofing if you're not fast enough.

I don't have a dog door, and don't want one - the cat would get out then.
