Here is a little success story of my own. Frankie, my young Springer Spaniel, occassionally needs to go potty in the night. I can’t hear him scratch at the door when I am sleeping. I told him that he could bark to wake me up. He replied that he didn’t want to wake up Daddy. So I told him to lick my face until I wake up and I will let him out. So that’s what he does! No more accidents!
