Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Hello there, hope you're all having a nice morning.

This summer, I'm spending more time with my parents, and bringing along my 4 month old for the ride. My dad has a dog, but she is too old/fat/lazy to play/put up with my girl Astrid, and growls / becomes snappy when Astrid antagonizes, so they have to stay separated. She is a 100% outside dog while at my dads. Before, I would often let her in for play, but would bring her out immediately if she peed or pooped inside. Now I don't really have a way to show her that peeing and pooping is bad inside, so I'm not sure how to go about continuing to try to housebreak her. I do praise her whenever I see her peeing/pooping outside. She can't handle a crate whatsoever, and in trying to be a good house guest, I can't subject anyone to the constant whining that comes with trying to enclose her. Besides an endless fascination with eating plants and digging on occasion, she is well behaved having free reign of the yard (and has quickly earned the nickname Houdini!).

My second option is my boyfriend's, where three dogs of varying size are all housebroken and have free reign of the house and yard. I haven't let her come here often because they have chickens, and she hasn't had all of her shots, so I'm worried about that. That would be a whole other environment to become acclimated to, as well. Basically opposite.

All in all, does anyone have any suggestions? Should I try classes for her? Give her more chances to make mistakes so I can correct them? I hope I'm not doing everything wrong.
