Weird Quirks of the Havenese

My almost year old Cinco has the weirdest quirk. He is potty trained but that dog does not like to go outside first thing in the morning or at night. I say 'lets go potty' and he will just lay down. But if I pick him up and carry him out, he will pee or poo. He would rather hold it than to go relieve himself outside. I just can't figure out why. Thank God he does not pee or poo in the house.

I just can not figure out why he does not like to go outside. It does take him a while to get woken up in the morning. So, we go ahead and let him out of his case and give him some time to wake up, then I will take him out but I have to pick him up.

Also, he does not get excited about eating. I put his food out at 7:00AM and 5:00. Sometimes he will not eat until an hour or two later which is also weird. I do take it up if he has not eaten in that hour time frame and that has happened a few times.

Is that weird or does this sound normal?

Thanks.

Our Ollie does not like to go potty when it is raining. He uses the gravel area between our house and the neighbours and he stays right up against the wall where the evestroughing has allowed for a dry area. He will go and instead of turning around and risking getting his feet wet he will back up the whole way to the doorway. It is very funny to watch.

Chloe doesn't like the rain either. She will refuse to go out. It's funny because she knows when the grass or straw is wet - she sniffs the air. I usually have to hold an umbrella over and try to find the driest spot available for her. She will hold it too, but there comes a point where she has to relieve herself and only then will she go. I have bought her booties for feet and tried them, but need to get the rubber kind, these still get her paws kind of wet but not soaked and she has a raincoat.

Yeah, My ollie doesn't like the rain either, for just a straight up pee pee trip. he will walk in the rain, but not just go out to the backyard for that. the second he smells the rain, the brakes go on.

I gave up and just put a pee pad down in the winter. Now that he's blind, there's one all the time by the sliding glass door to the backyard.

Smile For my Boo its heat

Boo loves the rain, but hates hates going out in out Texas heat. He seeks out a shady spot and does his business as quick as he can and runs back through his door. He also likes to play in the sprinkler.


A Dog is unconditional love with fur!

Update on my original post......Cinco now goes to the door or whines to go out....yaaaay. First thought it was a fluke but has gotten pretty consistent. He just is not a morning dog though as he still does not like it go out when he first gets up. He never has accidents and will hold it for until I make him go out. He will be a year old on 11/26.

That's great - in the morning I have to make Chloe go - she would rather eat first.

Otherwise throughout the day if she has to go, she will sit in front of me, then keep looking at me the at the door. Or sometimes she'll go over by the door and sit.
