Toilet training for puppies: basic tips & techniques
Toilet training your pup should be quite a simple process, as long as you make an effort and trouble to find yourself in a good routine.
Initially, you will have to build your routine around your puppy's needs, and these are reliably predictable when they are extremely young. Puppies need to urinate soon after waking up, and that means you need to be there to consider your cute puppy
straight into the garden without any delay.
Eating its meal stimulates its digestive system, and puppies normally urinate within quarter-hour of eating, and defecate within half an hour of eating (although this might vary slightly with every individual).
Puppies have inadequate bladder control, and need to urinate at least every hour or two. They are able to urinate spontaneously when they get excited, so take your puppy out frequently if it has been energetic, playing or discovering.
You might find it beneficial to keep an archive of when your pup eats sleeps, urinates and defecates. A straightforward diary list will do. Do it again cue words like 'wee wees' and 'poo poos' or 'be busy' and 'be clean' while the puppy is actually urinating or defecating. Use different words for every action so you will be able to prompt the pup later on.
Always go with your puppy into the garden which means you is there to prize and attach the cue words to the successful activities! Fortunately, puppies are creatures of habit, so as long as you bring in your garden to your pup as its toilet area in early stages, you should be in a position to avoid the majority of the normal pitfalls.
How exactly to toilet teach your puppy: common errors
Unfortunately there are many reasons why 'toilet training' may not go as easily as it could, so make sure you do not make the following mistakes:
- Feeding an unsuitable diet or giving a number of foods. Not nourishing at regular times. Nourishing at the wrong times (that could cause over night defecation).
- Punishing the pup for its indoor accidents (which can make it worried of toileting in front of you - even outdoors).
- Feeding salty foods (e.g. stock from cubes) making them drink more.
- Using ammonia centered cleaning substances (which smell similar to urine).
- Expecting the puppy to let you know when it needs to go out; this is unrealistic, so that it is way better to get them at regular intervals.
- Leaving the trunk door open for the pup to come and go as it pleases (a puppy will think that the garden can be an adventure playground, rather than a toilet area. Also, what is a puppy designed to do when the weather gets cold, and it is faced with a closed back door?).
- Leaving the pup alone too long, such that it is forced to go indoors (which sets a poor precedent, or even a habit of going indoors).
- Mistakenly associating what 'good female' or 'good son' when they toilet, instead of the specific cue words. Do you know what could happen the next time you compliment your dog?
- Usage of rugs or carpet (which are nice and absorbent - just like grass).
- Laziness on your part, resulting in more wees indoors than outdoors.
- Leaving the pup alone in the garden, so you are not there to incentive it for going outside� how is it meant to learn that it's popular and advantageous going outside, if you are not there to show your approval?
- Submissive or thrilled urination on greeting (if this occurs, take your puppy outdoors before you greet it and build down your greeting so it is less exciting or overwhelming).
- It really is unfair to anticipate
your puppy to go right through the night time when it is very young.
- Sleeping the pup in a crate or puppy pen can help with house training but you should allow it out in your garden to alleviate itself at night time.
How to train your puppy to toilet out on a walk
Many owners appear disappointed that their young pup will not toilet when out on a walk, yet relieves itself the next it gets back. This is because the pup has been taught to toilet only at home (hopefully in its garden), and being creatures of habit, they often wait until they have came back home before evacuating their bladder and/ or bowels.
To break this habit, you will need to get up very early one morning (when you yourself have plenty of time), and get your pup out on a walk before it has had its morning hours wee. You should not take it home until it's been pressured to go out of desperation. If however, you don't succeed, and your pup hasn't toileted, then take it immediately into the garden on your return, or you risk it relieving itself indoors.
