Owner Holds Umbrella Over Arkansas Puppy on Rainy Day Bathroom Break

Determined to housebreak his fair-weather puppy, Arkansas resident Brannon Kotch took some extreme measures to ensure that miniature dachshund Hans went outside to do his business on November 28.

In a video uploaded to TikTok, Kotch follows the pup around his Maumelle, Arkansas, yard holding a large umbrella over him.

Hans “HATES the rain, and hates when the grass is wet,” Brannon’s wife and video recorder Marykatherine Kotch told Storyful. “Since we really wanted him to go outside, and not inside, my husband had the idea to keep him dry – which worked,” she added. Credit: Marykatherine Kotch via Storyful
