    Default So, how does anyone get their Bullies to potty in a downpour?!

    We're in Az., where it NEVER rains. I let my girls outside, where it is around 50 degrees and coming down in buckets. They're both parked on the patio, with their faces practically pressed up against the glass, looking at me. I can tell exactly what they're thinking: "Are you out of your mind? Why are we out here, freezing in this terrible rain? Just let us in, we'd MUCH rather pee in our crates, and poop on the floor!"

    There is nothing nicer than two sweet Bully girls, unless it's THREE sweet Bully girls!!

    I haven't ran into it with Jozi
    yet but with my Great Dane
    we just stayed out there until
    he went. Sometimes it took a
    LONG time. But he finally gave in.

    Oh no Samson would rather hold it for days than go out in the rain LOL. The other day I had to pick him up, put him outside our back door and push his little booty forward. He turned his head back to look at me and gave me a dirty look! I looked at him sternly and said real strong and seriousy, GO POTTY! So he did LOL But I always have to do that/force him to go out.

    DITTO with what @bfletch13 just said. Just keep watching them and whenever they show signs of going in the house, put them outside. Eventually they will just have to go!!

    Well, I finally put them in their crates and they're both snoring. I think I'll wait an hour or so (hopefully the rain will let up) and put them out again. It's NOT supposed to rain here! This is why we live in the desert!! Ugh!

    ROFL @TessaAndSamson What a visual... LOL
    It was suggested herethat we get some sort of a tend/canopy/or sumptin to set up over the Princesse's potty area. Next it would be a canopy going from the back door to the tent... ROFL *rolling my eyes*

    Vegas loves to go out in a down pour it does not bother him at all, I have to leash him to take him out, I use an umbrella for me, but he loves it, when we come back in he gets wild and runs laps around the dining room. What I hate is when it is thundering and lightning and he needs out, here in Florida we are the number one lighting state in the U.S. I try to make him hold it as long as I can then.

    Well,

    Duke from day one would let me know he had to go outside. He comes up to me with his whining and I ask, "Do you got to poo-poo?"
    and he'll bark back at me. Rain, snow or 100 degrees Duke knows he can't hold it any longer he's gotta go outside in his yard.

    But to help you......I reccommend walking them in the rain. Yeah you'll get wet, but they will also sense your not afraid of the rain and
    it may get them over their fears.
