It is always so exciting when we finally get our dog potty trained to go outside in the back yard. We open the door and out he goes. In a few minutes, he is finished doing his duty and in he comes. The house no longer smells of wee-wee and we don’t have to see the carpet cleaner again.
Then, we get into the rainy season. Our dog who used to love to go outside and do his duty whenever necessary is afraid to go out the back door or step off the covered patio tiles onto the grass. No matter what we do, he stays inside. All of a sudden, he starts to go to the bathroom inside again because he is afraid of the rain and all the wet ground outside. We can’t make it stop raining and we can’t make him stop needing to go potty.
We need a solution to allow our dog to go potty even though it is raining and to make sure we don’t teach him to go potty in the house again.
