How do you get a dog to pee where you want her to?
One of my dogs is getting up there in age and has to pee more frequently than usual. However, being almost 10 years now, it is engrained in her that peeing inside = big no no. When it's 11 PM and I'm comfortable on the couch in my underwear, it's not fun having to get dressed, put on shoes, grab her leash and take her downstairs and outside to pee. Surprisingly, my 13-year old dog is fine with their two long walks a day and doesn't even want to come with us for what I call a "pee-pee break." (She ain't moving if it's not a real walk!)
I've been thinking about building something on my apartment's balcony for a while now for the 10-year-old. However, she refuses to go on the balcony even though it's made of concrete, is just sky all above her, and with the city's street noise, it is very much like being outside. I was thinking of putting a few squares of turf out there. Read something about pouring vinegar. Anybody have any experience/advice?
