Gosh, it's awfully quiet in here. Just had a question about my boy Nitro. I brought him home July, 2009. He's a teacup poodle; it's my understanding he was released to the shelter by a breeder, so he was never socialized. Carol said he was trained to go on piddle pads and boy is he ever. I don't really have a problem with him, but he he does not like to go outside. I walk him around the block, he'll sniff here and there but that's about it. As soon as we get inside the house he runs straight to his piddle pad and goes. I guess this isn't a problem because I never have to worry about messes in the house. I've been owned by 7 poodles before I got Nitro, so I'm accustomed to their goofy ways...but this one is strange, Has anyone else run into this?

Yes, we have a dog like this. No socialization really, very sad. Even though ours won't pee outside, he loves his walks a lot. I just think he had been taught to use the pads and is a good boy, following his training. We are *trying* to loosen him up by taking the pads along on the walk and putting them up along trees and on grass etc Hoping if we do this long enough he will learn it's ok to "go" outdoors. Also thinking about walking him with a neighbor dog who might show him outdoor peeing is ok. No tragedy if he doesn't convert. I guess from his standpoint, the outdoors is just not where you're supposed to "go". Maybe it's too loud or busy or unclean. I just feel badly when we get home and he runs for the pads like yours... want to ask "Have you been holding it all this time?" LOL

Diet We all know that puppies and kittens have very different nutritional needs to adults. There are a number of well- known health problems associated with feeding growing pets an inappropriate diet so it is important to opt for a complete diet formulated specifically for growth. Choosing the best possible quality food will help ensure consistency and digestibility, and can bring extra benefits too. For example, premium nutrition is often tailored to individual needs and incorporates health nutrients, like antioxidants to help support developing immunity.
