Oh yes - it's us two, the double trouble here! laugh out loud

Actually, just joking! Our daily fun chases & wrestling are the best ever - sheltie duos unite! cheer

My parents joke that "One day we'll have a Sheltie Plantation", (to be said to the Dalmation Plantation song at the end of 101 Dalmations);
they're just joking though, I sat down w/Mom already...our household is busy enough for her! cloud 9

Welcome little Rupert! hug

Feel free to ask any questions here or I also am the administrator of a sheltie group too with a lot of experienced Sheltie owners - All American Shelties. There's one thing about sheltie owners - we're all very friendly!

Today at the park a lady with a standard poodle was all over me because she has an angel that she said looked a lot like me. I enjoyed her company more than the norm, (who could resist baby talk?! big grin ) and then later I rubbed noses with a sheltie named Buddy. No matter where you go - people with shelties love stopping & chatting! cloud 9 Have fun you cute little handful wave

Awwww Duncan! You poor pup with little shaves here & there! I'm sorry you had to go through with that! hug

Thanks for sharing your story though - just to meet another dog who went through the "gum method" big grin

Shetland Sheepdog > how does your dog let you he has to potty?

I think what will help with your long time of just smelling before doing anything is how you set up the potty.

Choose a place for potty & always return there, choose a word "Go ____" praise a lot when he does it, & then immediately go inside. He doesn't realize there's a need for him to just immediately look interested in that then it won't change, (thankfully it doesn't sound like he confuses potty time with play time).

Always keep him on a leash for potty times too, (just having him in a gated area & expecting him to go has a high percentage of not being effective & if so taking forever). Only after he learns his word with praise after it's done will he be better to go outside alone in the backyard for business only, (I loved this when it was cold outside). It also helps if he learns a "come" by then & continuing on with the small alloted time just for business then maybe you can make it to the point where you don't have to go outside either. If it's playtime just bring him in...get busy with something else & then go outside play fetch or something - keep them seperate.

If you're consistant, potty time, (for both), should take a total of 5-8 mins max.

It took about two full months to go from initially seeing a sheltie on a dog show & taking note. Talking about it & bookmarking a ton of sites for one month & then getting me as a puppy!hug

I'd love to meet a sheltie whose ears tipped perfectly without a little help from their parent big grin Maybe I'm just not lucky enough to know some super-show-dogs to see what some awesome bloodlines can do! big grin

Either way, the others covered how to do it, but I just wanted to chime in that either way works! Truthfully, my ears were set with...chewing gum! Can you believe it? This girl-next-store didn't get the fancy stuff...but it was look we were going for just to get around having the tallest ears ever, (they really overtake my face...I know - I just have to smile a little brighter & you'll never notice laugh out loud ) It's not the rigid perfection, nor the "let your hair down" alternative, but it worked for me!

Oreo's ears are TINY - plus his hair is black...so half the time you don't notice his ears at all! But they're straight - yep! cloud 9

Chloe will go find her leash & drop it at my feet when she has to go outside. Oreo never tells me anything - I guess he leaves it up to her to let me know.

I don't even think of our "schedule" as that anymore, but it's both businesses after we awaken, #1 somewhere in the middle of the day maybe; but, mainly at our walk ir'a "all calls on potty time" & then before bedtime both again if needed.

Maybe on the weekend keep him nearby on a leash until maybe there are some cues? I'd just look into a few times during the day,depending upon how your day normally runs, & go by that just to make things easier.
