Yesterday was a great example of the benefits of having dogs litterboxed trained rather than traditionally trained to go only outdoors for elimination. I left my house at mid-afternoon to beat the rush hour traffic (was not entirely successful as traffic was still quite heavy) to get to the opposite side of town to do a motivational talk at a Rotary club.
After my talk, I went to have dinner at a long time friend’s place which was near that part of town. Since we haven’t seen each other for so long, there was a lot of catching up to do and it was the first time I met his entire family. So needless to say, I didn’t end up getting home until about 10:30 pm.
My friend was wondering if my dogs were going to make a mess if kept indoors all this time. I told him that there was nothing to worry about since both of my dogs are completely litterbox trained. He had never heard of this before and was quite surprised.
When I got home, sure my dogs were a bit hungry but that’s okay. A late dinner is never too much of a problem for them. Best of all, they didn’t mess up my house since being litterboxed trained dogs, they simply use the box whenever they need to.
I just went into the dog room and cleaned up whatever was in the litterbox. Simple and no mess. That’s an example of the great benefits of training your dog to use a litterbox. No need to rush home just to let your dog out for elimination. No need to have your dog hold everything in for hours at a time.
I have a neat video which shows my two dogs using their litterbox. I am currently working on a project to teach new dog owners how to train their dogs this way.
