So Brien (my husband) and I are trying to more thoroughly train Bernie to the pad. We are shamelessly bad parents who have coddled and stroked the ego of our dog without forcing the pad and being overly lenient when she pees in the middle of the dining room, her preferred methodology.

Our latest game plan consists of taking her on "inspections" everytime we come home to assess the damage and then rewarding her with great excitement as we show her the pad and point out that she has peed/pood on it. Then she gets a treat. This is all done while crooning loudly about how fantastic she is for "peeing on the pad". :aktion033:

Little did we know she had a special surprise up her sleeve as well: everytime this happens she comes screeching across the kitchen floor, skidding and sliding on the hard wood and then begins to do the Kitchen Dance which is a little diddy that consists of her jumping from side to sides and wiggling her front paws around. It's priceless and always leaves us in stitches.

She only does it in the kitchen and only during the inspection phase and it's so wonderful I find myself rooting more for her to pee on the pad so she'll do the Kitchen Dance than so I won't unexpectedly soak the bottom of my maxi dresses with dog urine while trying to retrieve a cup of tea from the kitchen.

That is all ;) Just had to share.

How cute is that. You should try to get it on video. I love that our little ones keep us smiling.

:HistericalSmiley:That admission was so refreshing and funny!

Because I know your a great Malt Mom, but usually no one "fesses up" to what they could do better.

I am the same with Coco. Paris is a potty star but Coco needs some help.
Paris will even rat on her sister if she goes to go in the wrong spot!

The Kitchen dance sounds hilarious!
