My Dumb Dog
 
It will take a leak and then run for the back door to be let in. I will let it in, and it will stand by the back door wanting to be let out. I will let it out and it will then go #2.

That's all. Discuss.

Doesn't that dog know you have better things to do with your time?

BendtheBar 01-10-2012 01:13 PM

It appears not.

I can take it for a walk and it will literally urinate 30 times. But it will never "release the gates". So at night we put it out and it tinkles a bit. Then 10 minutes later it wants to go out again and it tinkles just an itty bitty more.

the only way we can get the canister completely empty is to walk him for an hour.

Have you considered giving him a gentle squeeze?

BendtheBar 01-10-2012 01:30 PM

No. I will put that on the to do list.

Ah, subtle dog-speak for "cardio is good, you know" :tomato:

If it was Summer I am all in :)

I would leave the dog out for a longer time. Maybe then it will just go. Have you tried this?

I presume conserving his urine is an evolutionary adaptation to ensure he's got enough in the tank to keep on scent-marking his territory. It probably applies to lots of male animals. Male mice certainly let it out a bit at a time. One of the least interesting bits of research I've done was counting over 14,000 spots of mouse urine (using UV light). Female mice, by contrast, let it out in one big pool.

(I presume ending on a preposition was his little literary joke).
