    Oh yeah, she certainly can't hear me calling her to come back in, but she somehow hears the bag of treats shaking and sprints inside. Hmmmm.... I wonder if she has some kind of hearing problem I should go get checked out???

    @Miss Molly, glad the bribery is working. this is butler's favorite after potty treat: freeze dried banana slices. not to be confused with dehydrated banana chips. they are the perfect size and are sweet and have a soft but crunchy texture. he loves these and they are wonderful because they are quick and easy to get to. there are no added sugars or preservatives or anything! just banana. i get mine at trader joe's i don't know if you have one where you live, but i'm sure there is something similar.

    Thanks for the suggestion @sheila! I do have a trader joe's in my area that just opened a month or so ago that I have been meaning to go check out.

    Boy, I wish I had to bribe my girls to come back inside! I have to bribe them to go OUT!

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

    oh, and about her hearing problem, it's called "selective hearing" and my husband also suffers from this debilitating disease.

    my trainer taught me the greatest thing:

    go out with the dog, and whenever he/she goes to the bathroom say "hurry up" a couple times.

    been doing it for about 2 weeks and now when i say hurry up, he goes to the bathroom on command.

    also, have you worked on the "come" command. These bullies are smart.

    That is a great idea.... Once the weather warms up! LOL

    I haven't worked on "come" yet, we did just learn sit. I need to start working with her on commands more so she will start listening a little better. She is a very smart girl!

    All my gang loves the frozen green beans...Though when training...potty time though it's cold out with winter. Taking her on a lead to one designated area and not allowing her to play. But only the length of the leash to go around in a specific area...while repeating..."Go potty" and praise and reward when the deed is done. Then directly head back to the house...and later take her out to play in another area... It's important at a young age to establish potty time for what it is...It really helps with consistency.

    ^^ Good idea Darlene. If she's on the leash, she has to do her business and come back in. That should help, she picks up on everything super fast. I am going to have to start doing that now, even if I freeze my butt off!

    I need to break her of her couple of bad habits before they get worse. She is a really good dog, but she is a typical bullie teenager!
