The two puppies I recently rescued (now about 3 months old) pee & poop all over the house. I don’t hit my animals but am at the end of my rope in training them. Or more aptly, am at a loss not knowing how to train them. My sister suggested I swat their behinds with a newspaper (a tap, not a lambasting) & then put them outside. Does anyone know another way? Or is that a surefire way & not abusive?
