    Default Advice please

    Radar is 5 months old almost 100% potty trained uses his bells like a pro. He rings them all the time to go outside he will pee a little each time but wants a snack aka blueberries more then anything he gets 3/4 cup of food and some veggies with supper a whole cup maybe more each meal so not sure if he is still hungry or has just figured out that bells and outside equals snacks. Any advice or thoughts would be fantastic

    He is training you!?

    he has associated getting the treat for being outside.... Try to mix it up with just praise and no treat see how he does

    Buster does this to us constantly. We think its just to get treats so we stopped when he wouldn't go, he'll get the idea soon enough.

    Radar is a very smart pup! I struggle with this too but just remember that rewards can also be in the form of affection/praise like Christine mentioned, or playing with him, etc…
    I know sometimes i wonder if i'm feeding my boys enough or not b/c they're always ready for a snack…but then when i see that one of them weighs 70lbs i snap back into reality and realize that i am (and then some)!

    Ah, the go-outside-multiple-times-and-not-do-anything-but-get-a-treat-regardless-trick ... my Stiggy used to do that. He gave it up after I gave up giving him treats when he doesn't do his business.

    And yes, they do get more adorable as they older!

    Great advice given -start giving treats only when hes doing his "buisness" then after a while start to reduce treats and slowly replace it with praise

    I agree with everyone, great advice, so nothing to add, other than Radar is super cute and smart. How do you teach them to use the bells to go out? My friends Havanese dog does this too, it's so cool and cute.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.
