You cant make this up. My middle fluff has decided to start jumping in our bathtub to go #2. My wife wanted to know how to stop her i said we should encourage her, LOL. Maybe she can train the other two.

When we r away they stay n the mstr bath we put the rugs over the side of the tub so they dont potty on them. Gucci is jumping up and on the rugs and over to get in and out when she wants. We've always called her our gazelle. LOL.

As long as it doesnt hurt her knees i think it's fine. Right?

i would never let my dog jump into a slippery bath like that. you never know which jump is going to hurt them and not just their knees but their shoulders and neck as well. and the effects are also cumulative over time....

I have to agree with Tami. I would never let a dog jump into a slippery tub. I think they could get seriously hurt.

Not only that ... but, I wouldn't want my dog to defecate into the bathtub. That does not sound hygenic at all. I can't imagine all of your dogs using the bathtub that way. Not only is it dangerous, but, they would be bound to step in the feces. :w00t: I would think your dogs can be trained to go on potty pads if you are not home to allow them access to go outdoors.

About the bath scenario ... I bet your wife does not agree with you on this one.

I really just thought it was funny, but I definately see your guys' point. I'll put the rugs down somewhere else so she can't jump in there.

They are generally trained to go on the puppy pads. That's where they always go.

For some reason, she's always loved bathtubs in general (the pooing thing is new) , she always goes nuts if my wife is in the tub, or her sisters are without her. She also goes nuts for other peoples bathtubs when we go places and she likes to get in and check them out, we usually put her in and take her out. Kind of a weird quirk with her. she loves swimming pools too, and would go nuts if we didn't take her in with us when we used to have a pool. She would sit on the raft. LOL.

I had a friend who taught their min pin to go to the bathroom in the walk in shower. I thought that was a cool idea. LOL.

years ago when my Muffy (RIP) was ill he went to the shower and pooed, I was soooo glad, better then the carpet, he only did that once, he was one who would NEVER go inside the house, I used comet and Lysol to clean the shower.
That being said like the others I don't think it's very safe for her to jump into the tub.
