We had a rough start to the week again. LeeLoo would not go potty outside.
I just kept thinking, what am I going to do? At some point I realized that an important part of LeeLoo’s regular training was missing. I had not been using the clicker to capture her behavior because I was forgetting to bring it outside with me. So silly.
To combat my forgetfulness, I hammered a small nail into the wall next to the patio door. Now, I hang the clicker on the wall and grab it every time LeeLoo and I go into the backyard.
Once I set up this new system, it was a waiting game. I kept waiting and waiting and waiting for LeeLoo to go potty outside. I didn’t think she ever would, but on Thursday SHE FINALLY DID IT! I proudly clicked her behavior and we ran into the house so LeeLoo could claim her chunky chicken treat. Super yummy tastiness!
By Sunday, I took LeeLoo outside six times, told her to go potty, and she went some sort of potty each time. Yes!!!!! ‘Tis a miracle!
I’m crossing my fingers that this awesomeness will continue.
