Toilet training for puppies: basic tips & techniques

Toilet training your puppy should be a significant simple process, as long as you make an effort and trouble to find yourself in a good program.
Initially, you will need to build your routine around your puppy's needs, and these are reliably predictable when they are very young. Puppies need to urinate immediately after waking up, which means you have to be there to consider your puppy straight into the garden with no delay.
Eating its meal stimulates its digestive tract, and puppies normally urinate within quarter-hour of eating, and defecate within half an hour of eating (although this might differ slightly with each individual).
Puppies have inadequate bladder control, and need to urinate at least every hour or two. They can urinate spontaneously when they get thrilled, so take your puppy out frequently if it has been energetic, playing or discovering.
You may find it beneficial to keep a record of whenever your pup eats sleeps, urinates and defecates. A straightforward diary list can do. Do it again cue words like 'wee wees' and 'poo poos' or 'be active' and 'be clean' as the best puppy pictures is in fact urinating or defecating. Use different words for every action so you can prompt the pup later on.

Always choose your puppy in to the garden which means you are there to praise and attach the cue words to the successful activities! Thankfully, puppies are creatures of habit, in order long as you introduce the garden to your pup as its toilet area early on, you ought to be in a position to avoid most of the normal pitfalls.
How to toilet train your puppy: common errors
Unfortunately there are multiple reasons why 'toilet training' may not go as smoothly as it might, so make sure you do not make any of the following mistakes:
- Over-feeding.
- Feeding an unsuitable diet or giving a number of foods. Not nourishing at regular times. Feeding at the incorrect times (which could cause immediately defecation).
- Punishing the pup because of its indoor accidents (which can make it scared of toileting before you - even outdoors).
- Feeding salty foods (e.g. stock from cubes) making them drink more.
- Using ammonia based cleaning compounds (which smell much like urine).
- Expecting the puppy to let you know when it needs to venture out; this is unrealistic, so it is way better to take them out at regular intervals.
- Leaving the back door open for the pup to come and go as it pleases (a pup will think that the garden can be an adventure playground, rather than a toilet area. Also, exactly what is a pup designed to do when the elements gets cold, and it is faced with a closed back door?).
- Leaving the pup alone too long, such that it is compelled to go indoors (which models a poor precedent, or perhaps a habit of going indoors).
- Mistakenly associating what 'good girl' or 'good son' when they toilet, as opposed to the precise cue words. Do you know what could happen the next time you compliment your dog?
- Access to rugs or carpet (that are nice and absorbent - exactly like grass).
- Laziness on your part, resulting in more wees indoors than outside.
- Leaving the puppy alone in your garden, so you are not there to reward it for going outside´┐Ż how is it designed to learn that it's popular and advantageous going outdoors, if you aren't there showing your approval?
- Submissive or excited urination on greeting (if this occurs, take your pup outside before you greet it and firmness down your greeting so it is less exciting or overwhelming).
- It really is unfair to expect your puppy to visit right through the night when it's very young.
- Sleeping the puppy in a crate or pup pen can help with house training but you should let it out in your garden to alleviate itself during the night.

How to teach your pup to toilet from a walk

Many owners appear disappointed that their young pup will not toilet when out on a walk, yet relieves itself the second it gets back. It is because the puppy has been trained to toilet only at home (hopefully in its garden), and being creatures of habit, they often times wait around until they have returned home before evacuating their bladder and/ or bowels.
To break this habit, you will have to get up very early one morning (when you have the required time), and get your puppy out on a walk before it has had its morning wee. You should not take it home until it has been compelled to go out of desperation. If however, you don't succeed, and your pup has not toileted, then take it immediately in to the garden on your return, or you risk it relieving itself indoors.
