Unfortunately no help there....
Although Chloe doesn't mind the rain (thank god), many here have the same problem.
I would try going out with a huge umbrella and be persistant. Stay with her outside as long as you can and after she is doing her "thing", immidiately praise/treat and take her inside. She will eventually understand (hopefully) that its better for her to pee and poop faster when it's raining. :thumbup:
Our little ones don't like inclement weather at all either, our solution is to keep them outside 'til they go! On days of heavy rain, I hold an umbrella over the two of us as we pace waiting for the 'delivery'. Eventually, they either go outside or they hold it til the rain stops. If we catch them trying to go inside, it's outside pronto so they get the idea that there's no avoiding going out!
I can say that Marley is not a huge fan of rain either, and does hesitate, but he will then go out.
What helps me is a really big umbrella so he doesn't get that wet. When I don't use it, he does just ok, but with it, he will stay out long enough to do ALL of his business instead of running to pee and bolting for the door.
Get a big umbrella /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif
even with an umbrella homer wouldn't go outside-he just ran back to the carport and peed in there /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/mad.gif so i have to take him on the leash and he doesn't get to go back in until he's done-it took awhile but he learned when it's raining and he's got the leash on the sooner he goes the sooner he goes back inside
I agree that you've got to let the dog decide that his discomfort at full bladder and colon is greater than his discomfort with the weather. Bad weather sends Spock fleeing to the eaves of the house, but eventually he knows that mommy's not trying to kill him, she just wants him to poop somewhere. Spock has never been trained to do his business on puppy training pads, so he was confused rather than relieved when I spread one on the kitchen floor one morning that the rain was just dreadful and encouraged him to take advantage of it once he'd come in with tail between his legs from the creek that had been our back porch.
If we are having an all day rain, I will try to wait until it lets ups some. Then I take them out one at a time on the leash under the umbrella. The leash is used even though we have a fence yard. It is to get them to come out in the rain and also to help keep them under the umbrella with me. They usually do their business fine this way.
