House Training: Week 2

This week began with disappointment. For two days, I could not get LeeLoo to “go potty” outside. It has been hit or miss since then.

I was so hopeful that LeeLoo was starting to get onto the potty outside program last week. She was consecutively going outside, but I can’t give up. This is going to take time. I have to remember that the backyard keeps changing on a regular basis as it is going through stages of landscaping. That affects LeeLoo’s perception of the backyard and her understanding of where she is supposed to take care of business. There are also new plants and soils that are extremely distracting with their foreign scents.

I’m going to stick with the current plan for now. LeeLoo is getting on a more definite eating schedule. We go to the backyard for her “go potty” times regularly. Whenever she does go potty outside, she gets a yummy meaty treat, and it’s the only time she can earn a treat right now.

Hopefully, things will change for the better in the next few days.
