Jenuine Answers

There seems to be a desperate need for a place to bring questions of a Spiritual nature.  It is surprising and sad how many individuals feel so isolated  because they are having certain experiences and have no means to figure out what is happening. I would like to say to them collectively,”You are not alone”.

It is also sad that in this day and age, it is harder to trust who you trust.  Everyone seems to either have their own agenda, represent an agenda  or be speaking from an egotistical  point of view (however subtle that may be).  I am not saying I have all the answers, but I can tell you what MY “agenda” is. It is to walk my life’s purpose by helping others discover their life’s purpose.

It is a Joy for me to hear,” I have been struggling my whole life with this and now I have an answer”‘.

So, feel free to think of me as a Spiritual Dear Abby.  I will do my best to answer as many of your questions as possible.  By sending in your question, you may be helping many others who struggle with the same issue. At the very least, I am hoping that people realize that they aren’t alone in their experience. That many others can relate, and in a way, we are in this together.  In this outer world that is so stark sometimes, that in itself may be a great comfort.

I look forward to getting to know you and having you get to know me.

With Love and Appreciation for the journey you walk,

Hi, Jen. I learned about you from Mariel Hemingway and how you helped her find her lost dog, and I’m so glad I did. Thank you so much for communicating with my dogs! They are doing great on going potty outside.

But they are still going potty inside, even when front door is open for them. Help?

Thanks very much!

Hi, Thanks for your thoughtful question. Apparently. your dogs are frustrated with you. They have changed their behavior somewhat to show they are listening but they want to see that you are listening.

When you come home, do you greet them first things and gush over them? Or do you come in busy and go right for the computer and other rituals to wind down? They think you are distracted too much and they want to be right in the thick of things with you. Because of their pasts, they may be a little bit more needy. They can’t and don’t get enough of you, it seems from their vantage point.

Do they get walks? One of them is lacking something exciting it used to have in it’s routine, long ago when it was loved before. Car rides with special treats. I know daily living can be tedious but they want more excitement with you.

They seem to like that excited energy. As much as you dote on them, turn up the gooy praise a notch and they will eat it up. Praise them ridiculously for going potty outside. Thank them through the day. Hopefully this will dissipate their need to get even more attention from you.

I hope this helps.

Thank you for your response, Jen! My dogs and I appreciate it! I have to admit I’m not very exciting, and they are enthusiastic and cheerful Chihuahuas, ages 3 and 5 yrs.

I am on the computer a lot with them sleeping in my lap, and I gush over them a lot, but I guess they need more time with Mom minus the electronics. When they ask to play, I always stop what I am doing and play, but I can do more.

We go to the dog park once or twice a week, but we can go more often. I can also start walking them again, which we all can benefit from.

Again, thank you very much. I look forward to seeing what these changes bring on the “don’t go potty in the house” behavior. I love these dogs like my kids.

You are most kind to answer questions here. I appreciate your gifts.

Are you saying “Don’t go potty in the house”? That’s the WHOLE problem. Dogs don’t understand negatives. They are not hearing the don’t. All they are hearing is “Go potty in the house”. You have been telling them to go in the house all this time. Instead say, potty outside. They have been confused why you have been telling them to go inside and then getting annoyed. They are quiet happy to go outside now. I hope this works!

Sorry, Jen, but that one is off the mark. I haven’t told them anything about going in the house, because I don’t see them do it. All I do is take them out whenever they wake up from a nap and/or every couple of hours and say “go potty” and give them a treat when they do. All positive. And I am at home with them all day. I don’t work, so we are always together..

Oh, you said it to me; to tell the dogs “Don’t go potty in the house”. I believe you said it to me on twitter as well. It occurs to me that I understand like a dog in that way. Because everytime you mentioned you didn’t want the dogs to go potty in the house, I automatically saw them going potty in the house. Dogs understand what you are saying, even if you aren’t talking to them. When I talk on the phone about food to the neighbor downstairs, her dog licks his chops. But, I am not trying to be argumentative. You are the main expert on your Pets. Here’s hoping all the loving you’re doing does the trick.

You’re right, I did tell it to you!
