It appears that after about 2 weeks of training Cooter is house trained. I am quite proud of myself. And yes proud of the little guy as well. The first few nights after we brought him home were rough. He was waking me up every 2 hours to go outside. I was pretty exhausted and a little bit cranky. Anyone in my family will confirm that I have always enjoyed my sleep time and if I am woken up before I am ready I am very cranky. However I survived and more importantly so did Cooter. :P
Jake my 5 year old schnauzer mix has me spoiled. He is very well trained and very behaved. He lets me sleep late, knows when it's time to play and knows when it is time to rest. I got him when he was 4 months old and he was really easy to train. I didn't have many problems with him.
Cooter is a bit more difficult. He is about 2 months old and very active. But thankfully he seems really intelligent and is getting the hang of life in our house. If I could only train him to let me sleep in later than 7:30am it would be great.
