Potty Training

The boy is just about fully potty trained, just a few more episod. es but pretty much all finished. I had a brilliant idea awhile back: use the advanced methods of dog training on the oboy. This idea emerged while listening to Terri Gross interview Jon Katz. Jon was going on and on about positive reinforcement as a way to "train" his dog in three days. I thought and figured out that three dog days are the equivalent to 28 human days. So imagined a boy fully potty trained in less than a month! But then a dude at church told me that not every year of a dog's life equal one human year. Some years it is only 3 while others are 10, depending on the activity of a dog's life. Next time perhaps.
