So I have officially trained my house goat to urinate in a litter pan. I still have to sweep up but she used her litter pan SCORE!
So it's ok for someone to share their living quarters with a cat who uses the bathroom in a litterbox, as opposed to a pan trained goat? Why, because the cat has been a household pet for centuries and a goat has not?I can't imagine the thought of living with a goat in the house, even if supposedly housebroken. I imagine that one would have a hard time convincing the local health authorities that it were sanitary, if it were ever reported that she was sharing her living quarters with livestock.
Ok, so I guess the fact that I swat my children's butt with my palm when they do something bad is considered bordering on abuse, then right? How about when they have to stand in a corner for 30 minutes? Bordering abuse? I mean, their poor legs are probably very tired from having to stand there with their nose pressed into a corner.Most respectable dog trainers have long since considered rubbing a dog's nose in it's waste as a housebreaking tool not only to be ineffective, but bordering on abuse. Those poor animals that do become housebroken by owners who use that technique do so in spite of it, not because of it.
:laugh:I trained my bottle baby to go on his paper in his crate. Smart little man figured it out fast. Actually he got it into his head that "paper" also meant "rug" so once he trotted over to the rug, started peeing, and looked back at me like, "Look mommy! I'm being a good boy! "
