    ok Lets see if I can figure out this photo thing. Thanks for all the welcomes. So far Sadie is doing great with everything except the potty training. She is so smart and is doing great with some of the basic commands so I cant figure out why she is having trouble with the potty thing. I did notice today that she is going to the door very briefly, but she only stays there 1/2 second. So if we can catch her right then she goes out fine. The big problem is sometimes I will take her out and we will stay out there for 20 min and she doesn't do anything and then 5 min after I bring her in she uses the floor. Oh well! She will eventually get it Right?????

    Default Welcome

    Welcome Melanie and Sadie! Sadie is a doll and I love her name. The breeder had almost completely potty trained Lena by the time I got her but I always used food treats when I was in a hurry-like in the morning getting ready for work. It's amazing. If she knows I am carrying them and I tell her to "Go pee" or the other, she immediately goes. Sometimes its a lifesaver. Especially in strange places where she doesn't want to go.

    Melanie and Sadie, great to see you got the hang of posting pictures I too spend time on message boards reading about Cavaliers and looking at pictures. LOL

    Its a wonder I get anything done around the house at all!

    Hi Melanie and Sadie,

    Sadie is beautiful and so innocent looking . I did the same as Sharyn with the toilet training and always gave Maxx a little treat (usually a piece of carrot) when he'd wee'd for me.

    Maxx's first human Mummy (hate the word breeder as she rarely has litters from her 17 (at last count) babies had him almost clean when she let him come to live with us but said that in all of her experience the best thing to do if they started to go in the house was... say 'no' in a very stern voice and immediately lift them back outside, when they finish off in the garden then give them a reward. They are such intelligent little furpeople that they soon get the hang of it

    I also trained a rescue Cavalier this way and it only took me a few days - try it and see if it works Good luck anyway
