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 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 within an inside place where you�d like your puppy to go.
Pet-specific stain and odor removers contain enzymes that help remove, not simply mask, odors from pet messes.
Create a command and a reward
Establish a command that your pet can understand. Say, �Go potty� while your pet does their business. This phrase association can help your dog learn to go whenever you say those magic words.
Whenever your pet is performed, say �Good potty!� and present lots of praise. Resist the temptation to prize this behavior with a delicacy, though.
Timing is everything
Create a consistent plan for potty breaks. First, keep the dog�s nourishing times constant and remember to remove leftover food between foods. This can help your dog develop a natural, predictable rhythm for removal.
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 pup is five weeks old)
> When you notice your pup sniffing an area while turning circles
around it - that means they need to go NOW.
Teach your pet where you can go
Canines are creatures of habit; so the sooner they understand where business should be done, the sooner they�ll stop heading elsewhere. To help speed up the procedure:
Take your pet to the same spot for each potty break.
Keep the home and yard environment the same during potty training. Redecorating or renovations might confuse your pet.
Some dogs learn faster than others, but if your puppy appears to be having a unique variety
of accidents, there may be a physical or psychological reason. Your pet may be anxious, depressed, frightened, thrilled, or could have a urinary tract infection. A male Dog Training Niche; www.bikeleague.org
