We have an 8 month old, and sometimes I let the dogs (German Shepherd and Lab mix) out, things get crazy, and I forget to let them back in for a little while. For instance, today the dogs were whining to go out, and the baby was crying at the same time. I opened the door to let the dogs out, then ran over to pick up the baby to find a MASSIVE diaper explosion. The poor dogs were out in the snow for about 30 minutes.
Because stuff like this happens like this occasionally I bought them this great, extra large dog house. There is plenty of room for both of them in there, and I thought they could cuddle (they like to snuggle) in it until I could get back to the door to let them in. However, they will not set foot in the dog house. They sit next to it in the rain. I've tried coaxing them, and they will have none of it. Has anyone had this problem? How did you train them to go in the dog house?
