    Voice commands should be limited to one syllables word. Like “go” or “out”, said with a firm tone.

    “pick your dog up” …how the hell am I suppose to do that with a yellow Labrador retriever?

    What the hell? So you’re basically teaching your dog to pee in two places? But when you take away the newspapers he’ll just pee on the ground?…

    you know…. .keeping your dog inside the toilet isn’t really good. prefer to errrr….. leave the door open, and let the dog go when he needs to.

    @djoxer Thats your opinion, I have both cat and dog, I love them to death. Cats serve as a friend if you live alone, so, they do have a purpose, As do dogs.
