Ask your training question

Question: We plan on getting a schnauzer puppy in April. One breeder told us to get a belly band for the puppy in the house while house training--even in the crate. I haven't seen you mention anything like this. Is this a good idea or something to disregard?

We plan on getting a schnauzer puppy in April. I have received 3 of your DVDs to help prepare myself for house training, etc. the puppy. One breeder told us to get a belly band for the puppy in the house while house training--even in the crate. I haven't seen you mention anything like this. Is this a good idea or something to disregard?

Thanks.

Cindy's Response:

The only dog I would use a belly band on is a dog that is incontinent due to medical reasons, injury or old age. In my opinion it's not a useful tool for house training because it doesn't teach the puppy to be clean in the house or crate. 

I would disregard that suggestion.

On Leerburg's Jive Dog Ball

   
  My Airedale Terrier puppy is an aggressive chewer and capable of destroying durable toys that are rated tough. We've owned this product for over a week and I have found only a few teeth marks which is a big deal. Kongs and other durable products cannot compare to the integrity of this manufacture. The verdict is still out, however, because the test of time will ultimatley determine the endurance and toughness of the product. It has been chewed on and it appears to be a solid product with a good amount of play for a puppy or dog. The item is substantial in weight yet is versatile. For my pup, it's in the testing phase with constant supervision.
