A Wee Problem
Stephanie has a wee problem with the way her dog, Billy, treats the yard. "Billy likes to lift his leg and pee on all of our plants and flowers," she says. "He also does the same thing in grass. We've tried everything and nothing has worked."
Jamie first recommends that Stephanie add some water to Billy's dry food. This keeps dogs from getting dehydrated and makes their urine less harmful to plants and grass.
"Number two, you've got to reward the dog for actually going to the potty somewhere else—finding a toilet in another area," Jamie says. "Make them feel good about going where you want them to go."
