I think it depends actually. Dogs are supposed to receive eye contact as a sign of aggression, which obviously would be a bad thing. BUT, you can train your dog a little on that front when they are young by rewarding docile behaviour while making eye contact.

I certainly wouldn't try staring down someone other person's dog though...

We have 1 real dog (looks and acts just like a catahoula), 2 "half dogs" (corgi's), and 1 football (pomeranian). We've had to potty train all 4 as is normal with ANY dog.

The pomeranian is a pup and spends a good amount of time in her kennel where going to the bathroom means that she has to/ gets to play in her own excrement. She's slowly getting better about going to the bathroom OUTSIDE not INSIDE.

With any dog accidents happen (ya know... like when you had that fish burrito from the taco truck...), but with training most dogs will be pretty darn good about not going to the bathroom inside.

Some, however, do go to the bathroom as a F*** YOU - generally on your bed....

I was told (or I read) that when they 'go' in the crate you want to clean it up ASAP. That's what their mother would have done in their den (in a quite disgusting way but w/e).

Catching them 'in the act' does seem to be important though. You can tell when they're looking for a spot, and catch them before they even really squat. Just a really loud "No!" and then picking them up and putting them outside, then praise when they go outside; plus the crating, has always worked for me. You can even 'set them up'...you know they're gonna go right after eating or waking up.

To be clear - the excrement is cleaned up pretty quickly. When we're out of the house, though, she's in the crate. Recently we've been coming home to a clean kennel.

I guess we all forgot to mention the "pup just won the world F*n series" cheering when they go to the bathroom in an appropriate spot...

I grew up with large dogs my entire life. My wife has an old bitchin freeze that vomits on everything and loves to spill garbage and spread it around the house. I just love that little yipper

I will get a real dog again when the kids are older and we can affoard a nice in-ground electric fence. I want an Irish wolf hound. Wanted one my whole life.

bitchin freeze
LOL! At least it's hypo-allergenic...allegedly. I used to have a Basenji which is also hypo-allergenic...allegedly.

Some dogs are just easy. My dog just won't 'stray' no matter what. I have gaps under my fence that I could crawl under but he just won't run off. Maybe having him fixed at about 10 months helped.

I couldn't agree more. I can't even ride my damn bike through our thug infested neighborhood, because of the pit bulls and other unchained mutts. You don't even understand the self control it takes not to start sniping dogs with the 10/22.

You give Schutzhund dogs a bad name. Schutzhund training should only be undertaken with stable, well adjusted animals - more so when one undertakes civil work associated with protection training. These dogs should also complete significant obedience training before undertaking serious bite work (obedience is part of the Schutzhund training). Generally speaking, police trained dogs are very stable, no department can afford to have a bite machine that will react to perceived threats such as eye contact.

Point is, some dogs will respond to extended eye contact as a challenge therefore it is not good practice.
