How to Potty Teach Your Puppy

Starting the potty process
Potty training a dog takes patience, kindness and a little planning. Before you begin, have these helpful tools on hand:
A crate can be an acceptable way to maintain your non-housebroken dog confined for short periods of time when you must leave him or her home alone. Dogs instinctively won�t do their business in their own space.
Training pads are absorbent, leak-proof and disposable, perfect to put on the floor in an inside place where you�d like your puppy to go.
Pet-specific stain and odor removers contain enzymes that help remove, not merely mask, odors from pet messes.

Create a control and an incentive

Establish a control that your pup can understand. Say, �Go potty� while your pet does their business. This phrase association will help your dog figure out how to go whenever you say those magic words.
Whenever your dog is performed, say �Good potty!� and present lots of praise. Resist the temptation to praise this behavior with a delicacy, though.

Timing is everything

Setup a consistent timetable for potty breaks. First, maintain your dog�s feeding times consistent and remember to remove leftover food between meals. This will help your dog create a natural, predictable rhythm for elimination.
Recommended potty break times:
> First thing each day
> After naps
> 10 to 20 minutes after each meal
> Before going to sleep at night
> At least one time during the night (until your puppy is five weeks old)
> When you notice your cute puppy sniffing an area while turning circles around it - which means they have to go NOW.

Teach your pet where you can go

Canines are creatures of habit; so the quicker they understand where business should be achieved, the earlier they�ll stop heading elsewhere. To greatly help speed up the process:
Take your dog to the same spot for each potty break.
Keep your home and yard environment the same during potty training. Redecorating or renovations might confuse your pet.

Potty problems

Some dogs learn faster than others, if a puppy appears to be having a unique number of accidents, there could be a physical or emotional reason. Your dog may be anxious, depressed, frightened, excited, or could have a urinary system disease. A male dog may be marking his territory. Consult a veterinarian who are able to help identify and treat these issues.
