How exactly to Potty Teach Your Puppy
Starting the potty process
Potty training a dog takes patience, kindness and just a little planning. Before starting, have these helpful tools on hand:
A crate can be an acceptable way to keep the non-housebroken dog confined for short intervals 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 only mask, odors from pet messes.
Create a order and a reward
Establish a control that your pet can understand. Say, �Go potty� while your dog is doing their business. This word association will help your dog learn to go once you say those magic words.
Whenever your dog is done, 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 routine for potty breaks. First, maintain your dog�s feeding times constant and be sure you remove leftover
food between meals. This can help your dog develop a natural, predictable rhythm for reduction.
Suggested potty break times:
> First thing in the morning
> After naps
> 10 to 20 minutes after each meal
> Prior to going to sleep at night
> At least once at night (until cute pup
your pup is five weeks old)
> When you notice your puppy sniffing an area while turning circles around it - that means they have to go NOW.
Teach your pet where to 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 procedure:
Take your pet to the same spot for each potty break.
Maintain your home and yard environment the same during potty training. Redecorating or renovations might confuse your dog.
Some dogs learn faster than others, if a puppy seems to be having a unique number of accidents, there could be a physical or psychological reason. Your dog may be anxious, depressed, frightened, thrilled, or could have a urinary tract infection. A male dog may be marking his territory. Consult with a veterinarian who can help identify and treat these issues.
