Must be a guy pup. See, that whole process/preference you described is something I can identify with too.

Pup looks healthy !
Is it just me, or in the last picture does your cat look like it's saying "Mum, I'm going to eat this small creature"
haha the cats will get their own back..time is of the essence..

quick question..... How can a dog not associate punishment with the bad behaviour when it can associate rewards with good behaviour. Isn't that like saying, it understands yes but it doesn't understand no?

The idea is that they don't understand if they've already done it and gone on to something else.

If you catch them in the act, that's when you say "NO!", take them outside and say "GO POTTY" the praise them when they do.

They do understand when you catch them doing it, you just can't punish them later if you find it after the fact.

Yeah... my cats and my dogs have always been taught with both negative and positive feedeback. If i catch them doing something wrong, i always say "No" and if i have to i tap them on the top of their nose (Just hard enough to startle them) But this only works if you catch them doing something wrong... For example i cought Neo squatting and i picked him up and said No.. then we went directly outside and when he went potty i said "good boy" and scratched his head.

i haven't had a puppy in years... ive had many many kittens... but i didn't realize how fast and how attached i would get!!! When im not home i worry about him, I call my husband while im at work to check on him... I have never done this with the cats... its not that i love the puppy more than the cats... but I think it is becuase cats are so independent... and the puppy is so needy.

Cats are definately more independant. I feel the same way, I know the cat will always be there doing just fine. I also call home when I'm not there and haven't taken the dogs with me. But I take them with me so much. They're spoiled, the fish would be spoiled too if it weren't for the fact that too many treats will kill them!
