I have never had a guide who told me when he/she wanted to go out. Sometimes
they were a little more restless, but because of the schedule, they came, I
think, to rely on me to take them out. We do this with all of our dogs, and
generally they aren't forthcoming about their needs. If they are, then it is
a good thing we noted or there would be an accident. Fisher never has them
now except if he's sick, but we have had to really work the schedule so he

Subject: [nagdu] I gotta go out

I hear some people have taught their dogs to ring a bell or something when
they have to go out.  How is this done?

This morning, Krokus had an accident in the house.  I have the day off, and
slept later than usual, and didn't rush him out the second I got up.
Stupid.  But he does nothing to let me know he's anxious to go.  Sometimes
he may rush about, but he does that anyway.


I never wanted a puppy, ever.  I never wanted the chewing and the
housebreaking.  Now I've got both.  I'm not very happy.  At least the
chewing is slowly getting better.
