    I was looking @ a dog magazine today and i saw that they sell doggie litter boxes....... I don't know if it would pose more of a problem when the snow melts to get the dog to go outside, but in might be worth looking in to.
    this is your life, is it everything you dreamed that it would be <br />when the world was younger and you had everything to lose

    I've never had a problem with my dogs not going out in the snow. My problem is trying to get them in out of the snow - lol! But - my mom's dachshund won't go outside if it's cold. She eventually ended up having to pick him up and take him outside. Also - do you have other dogs - that might help if they all go out together.

    Put a leash on him and lead him out, don't let him soil in your house just because he doesn't like snow. When we were fostering our American Bulldog she didn't like to go out in the rain so I had to put a rain coat on, clip the leash to her collar and lead her out. I wouldn't take her back in until she went (this is only when I knew she had to go), so soon enough she figured out that it would be fastest to run out and go and she'd be inside quicker. I know its cold but sometimes we gotta do what we gotta do.

    Take treats with you. He'll follow you out then! Our Dane doesn't like the rain much but believe me I make him go out. What did you mean about crating? You put him in there when he has to go out???? Or maybe you meant its hard to put him in the crate when you leave because of his size. Vader is 8 months & over 100 lbs already. He knows I'm boss. Part of the training process though. If you have a hard time getting your dog to go in the crate then again use treats. Always positive reinforcement with rewards (praise & treat / sometimes just praise). Good luck! [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Hi there! yes it's a funny thing, labs love to swim, splash in big puddles, but when it's raining or you show them the bath you'd think we were living on another planet. my suggestion if your lab absolutely refuses, put some paper in the laundry, if you can or will, put some of his/her poo on it, show him, put him in laundry after every feed, drink, he will get the hang of it till the snow goes, by then yes his poos will be big, but better on paper than carpet.
