[nagdu] Restrooms

I try to get the larger restroom stall. Some restrooms have a large stall
and another stall that is smaller than the large stall but bigger than the
normal ones. I hang the leash on the hook for purses and bags. I do not ever
put the leash on the ground or stand on it; that is disgusting  in a
restroom. I do not have Lexia sit.

Hi Tracy and all,

When I go into a public restroom with my dog I always try to get the big
handycapped stall. But if I can't get the big handy capped stall then I will
go into the regular smaller stalls.

I will walk into the smaller stall and turn around then I will call my dog
in with meaand have him turn aroundand stand or sit in front of me depending
on how much room I have in the stall.

And if my dog can't stand or sit in front of me do to  the stall being a
little on the small side then I will have him back up  in between the stall
wall and the toiletand have him sit or stand and wait for mee. Then when I
come out of a stall I will have my dog wait in between the stall wall and
toilet so that I can open the stall door and we can walk out.

I haven't had any problems doing it this way for us.

Of course I always make sure the  floor is dry and clean before I have my
dog sit down and if it's not then I have my dog stand and wait for me. Take

Lori and the Gipper
