    We've had one in the garden for a few years now- it gets used, but no more so than the fence posts, trees etc. Can't see a bitch using it personally, my lot are all boys and lift their legs against it.

    Not tried one myself (nor has my dog ;)!!) but a colleague at work did and said it was a waste of money.

    I would just teach your dog where to pee....you will have to be out with your puppy anyway to supervise.

    I don't see how it'd be any different from any other tree/post etc

    BTW, I wasn't being serious earlier. It was my pathetic attempt at humour!

    Not used one so cant offer personal opinion. It does say though for bitches and older dogs may need more encouragement, so if thats the case it may be then having to use encouragement, and praise and rewards when they perform in a designated area of your choice anyway. It is supposed to have a pheromone to encourage them, so I suppose for £6.50 its not exactly a fortune if it doesnt work so may be worth a try I suppose.
