    Tia will not go to the toilet in front of us, i took her out today and we went all over the place. As soon as we got back home and my back was turned she had a poo in the hallway on the carpet. I must stress as soon as she saw me she put her eyes down, as if she knew she has done wrong. It looks like power and control to me, yet she comes across as completely the opposite. The front room is laminated, and she has not been there.

    When she went in the front room, i bagged the poo and put her on the lead and literally had to drag her into the garden. I must stress at no point did i shout. What I have done now is put her poo in the garden so when she goes out later she can smell her own. To see if that will work.

    Also when my daughter came back home after taking her for a 40 minute walk. I immediately put her in the garden. Again she was not impressed, I think she wants a wee but will not go. I am making sure she is not being left by her self so that when she does eventually go outside for a wee or poo we can praise her.

    I am doing anything wrong or does anyone have a better suggestion.

    when she put her eyes down she didnt know she did wrong,she was trying to diffuse your bodylanguage...and no i dont agree about power and control!! shes new to you and the environment,she doesnt want to take over the world!!

    go back to basics like a pup... take her out after sleeping eating playing etc,and go out with her,praise and treat when she go's....and maybe try to put a name to the action.

    Excellent advice on the pooing from everyone. Canb only echo the advice above. Miya was a rescue and had similar problems to begin with. Just rescue thing i think. Patience and understanding won the day. She now never goes indoors unless she is unwell. Give it time. You will get there. Your doing the right things.

    Thanks for all the advise once again.
    She has pooed outside today, lets hope it is the first of many. She is a wary dog and needs time to settle. I did hear her growl softly at my niece when I went to my sister in laws shop. I have been told to socialise her more and to get the kids to throw food at her as they come in so that she looks forward to seeing them. My youngest who is 6 also heard her growl but I thought he was lying, however when we went over blackpool prom today near norbreck castle he did walk her a little and there was no problems. So it may be she does need a little time to adjust.

    Any other thoughts, anyone.

    Personally I would be a little concerned about a 14 year old child walking one of these dogs alone. Are you confident your daughter will be able to control her in all situations?

    I would be very concerned about a 6 year old being in charge of the lead, even with an adult present ...

    You've only just brought her home and could be overwhelming her - going into a home with your kids is enough of an adjustment without expecting her to cope with going to strange places and meeting strange kids so I would give her more time to settle.
    Don't take any chances with leaving your kids alone with her, seperate them with babygates or a dog crate, and consider leaving a houseline attached to her collar when she's roaming the house so you can grab her by that if needs be.
    Could be worth seeing if the fosterer can offer any support, or perhaps consider a behaviourist (many do reduced fees for recently aquired rescue dogs, to help with any teething problems)

    The first day we had cassie she was very nervous and peed in the house as well. Its just a case of going slowly while she finds her feet x

    p.s would love some piccys of her :)

    Tia is my brother in law's dog and as he said he brought her to my shop today and she was fine with me but did have a slight grumble at my daughter. I gave my little girl treats to throw on the floor in front of her, which Tia ate, and suggested that Jason do the same at home with his kids. I do think she will settle with time and patience. She seems a nice dog, quite quiet, but also wary. Luckily I have some experience with wary dogs and Jason is also going to take her to a good puppy class too. I'm sure there will be pictures soon.

    I took Gills advise and got Josh my 6 year old to throw some chicken and liver sausage at her. He enjoyed playing catch and Tia enjoyed eating. Rachael my 13 year old was brushing Tia and she enjoyed that too, she just lyed there with her eyes shut, most of the time whilst Rachael bumbled on about Justin Bieber. I too would have got bored and shut my eyes if I had to listen to that.

    BTW can not get a picture to upload from laptop

    You need a photobucket account, then you upload your pics there and copy and paste the url onto here. Simples.

    Glad things are going well now. Remember it can be two steps forward one step back so be patient.

    hi i think i may be too late in replying to this post ! im new on here and i am not quite sure what i am doing yet !! lol x someone asked about getting an northern inuit and there were a few replies back .......all i wanted to say was i have 2 northern inuits who have no problems AT ALL with recall or separation anxiety !! also they dont have epilepsy ...and although i am not saying that there there are no NI's with epilepsy ( i have no clue ) i know loads of NI's and i no none that have this x

    just wanted to add Ni's are fantastic dogs....very loyal, very gentle and placid and make fantastic pets ....BUT they are not for a novice owner they are very quick witted and can be quite stubborn....anyone getting one should really research into the breed x x

    i totally agree that kids shouldn't be walking any large breed dog to ..although NI's are great with children ...they are powerful x

    What I have found is that Gemma can walk Tia upto about 50-80 feet from a main road. She is not pulling on the lead.
    However if she sees a rabbit/squirrel over the park she has a prey instinct.

    I also have a problem where she occassionally she will wee in the house tends to be in my 6 year olds sons room. 2 days ago she pulled the curtains down in the front room and peed on them. Last night she was taken out at 6:15pm for a quick 20 minutes walk where she did a wee. I took her home, then went out training for an hour. My mother came around to babysit the kids and the dog. She sees her 2-3 times a week and tia likes her. However, she went up to my sons room and pooed in there, within 10 minutes of me leaving the house. When I am in the house she does not do this and I do not want to put her in the crate when other people are around, I think that is unfair on her.


    Any thoughts

    Mmmm.. I have had my zor peeing and pooing on the odd occasion .. My bitch has never did this as all ! Only thing is if she has been peeing there .. She will keep going back to the the same spot due to the scent .. It is really difficult to stop .. No its easier said but is it carpet thats there ? Could this be lifted and flooring put down ? ? My friend has a brussels griffon and he goes and pees and poos i the same spot in her youngest childs room to ! ? She is
    Lifting the carpet to see if she can break the habit ! Apparantly bio washing powder is good for neuralising the scent x

    I could imagine she pulled the curtains down un intentionaly at the window x i no what my 2 are like jumping up at the window as they are so nosey ! Lol x
    why she pooed though i am unsure ? Was it your dog who was a rescue ? Could u crate her when u go out even of u leaving her with someone else ? She may feel safer and more secure an leave her with a bone or specail toy ?
    This may help her to deal with her anxiety of u leaving x im sorry i cant give u more advice x
