How To Train Kasha

I am not giving up. I just don't want to confuse Africa or mess up her system. After 25 trips a day for 3 days we are trying grass planted in the corner with maybe some barkchip to absorb the smells and get her used to a new texture. We will also be fencing the area off as suggested.

Africa- "What are you trying to do?"

Kasha- "Teach you to go in the dirt instead of the grass so the baby has a place to play"

Africa- "He already has the entire house to play in and I usually have to stick to my two beds!"

Kasha- " You have an entire continent to play on!"

Africa- " Well since you did not make this clear from the start I will be very stubborn. I only like grass."

Kasha-" I know that. Since you refuse to go where I ask now I am going to plan B"

Africa-" What is plan B?"

Kasha-" You will see in 2 months. For now live it up sister!"

I would like to thank the following people ( two legged and four) for ideas and support of which I am using greatly:

Kasha The Dainty Great Dane
Huskee and Hershey
Amber and Nala

  3. Sounds like you will be learning something new Africa! ;) Good luck sweetie but I am now worried because my Mom thinks this sounds like a grand idea...YIKES!


    By the way, I just wanted to let you know my blog address has changed. It is now

  4. Just be patient and consistent - in time you will both find a solution that works.

    Woos, the OP Pack

  5. The trick is to train your owner Africa ;-)


  6. Good luck to you both! Be patient and use lots of praise. :)

  7. Oh Africa you poor thing you....keep working with your mom and you'll see you'll like playing in the green grass with your hooman sibling just as much as they will...not having to dodge the doody piles...Ha Roo!

  8. Africa is absolutly beautiful. I've never seen this breed before and I'm smitten for sure! Training is usually not quick for dogs or horses!

  9. Hi Africa - so you trained your hooman?! That's one way to go BOL!!!!
    You know my mom is German and has nothing from my dads relaxed South African nature so if she wants me to do something - I do it. If he says something I well, consider it :)
    But hey - you get your own bit of grass now! That is something.

  10. Where is Cecar Milan when you need him anyway???

  11. I'm just glad Dozer goes outside. Good luck! :-)

  12. You make me laugh, Kasha! I should come here more often. How about a treat when she does it on the right spot? Good luck! Love, Dino

  13. Ok, it suddenly dawned on me that Kasha can take some tips from my humans. I have no yard and I am not allowed to leave traces of my poop anywhere in my compound, so whenever I squat down to do my business, they will quickly slide a newspaper or magazine page under me and then collect my poop, tie it up in a bag and throw it away in the dustbin. Perhaps that will also help to keep your grass clean. Hope it helps. Hugs, Dino
