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 readily available:
A crate is an acceptable way to keep the non-housebroken dog confined for short intervals when you must leave her or him 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 spot where you�d like your puppy to go.
Pet-specific stain and odor removers contain enzymes that help remove, not just mask, odors from pet messes.
Create a control and a reward
Establish a order that your pet can understand. Say, �Go potty� while your pet is doing their business. This term association will help your dog figure out how to go once you say those magic words.
Whenever your pet is done, say �Good potty!� and present lots of compliment. Resist the temptation to praise this behavior with a delicacy, though.
Timing is everything
Setup a consistent schedule for potty breaks. First, maintain your dog�s feeding times consistent and remember to remove leftover food between foods. This will help your dog create a natural, predictable rhythm for eradication.
Suggested potty break times:
> First thing in the morning
> After naps
> 10 to 20 minutes after each meal
> Before going to sleep at night
> At least one time at night (until your puppy is five weeks old)
> When you notice your puppy sniffing an area while turning circles around it - that means they need to go NOW.
Teach your dog where you can go
Dogs are creatures of habit; therefore the faster they understand where business should be achieved, the sooner they�ll stop going elsewhere. To help speed up the process:
Take your pet to the same place for every potty break.
Keep the home and yard environment the same during potty training. Redecorating or renovations might confuse
Some dogs learn faster than others, but if your puppy appears to be having a unique quantity of accidents, there could be a physical or emotional reason. Your pet
may be anxious, depressed, frightened, excited, or could have a urinary system disease. A male dog may be marking his place. Consult with a veterinarian who can help identify and treat these issues.
