How exactly to Potty Train Your Puppy
Starting the potty process
Potty training a puppy 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 brief periods of time 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 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 order and an incentive
Establish a control that your pup can understand. Say, �Go potty� while your dog does their business. This term association can help your pet figure out how 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 reward this behavior with a treat, though.
Timing is everything
Create a consistent routine for potty breaks. First, keep the dog�s feeding times constant and be sure you remove leftover food between foods. This will help your dog develop a natural, predictable rhythm for reduction.
Recommended potty break times:
> First thing in the morning
> After naps
> 10 to 20 minutes after every meal
> Before going to sleep during the night
> At least one time at night (until your pup is five weeks old)
> When you notice your pup sniffing a spot while turning circles around it - which means they need 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 place for each potty break.
Keep the home and yard environment the same during potty training. Redecorating or renovations might confuse your pet.Potty
Some canines learn faster than others, but if your puppy appears to be having a unique amount of accidents, there may be a physical or psychological reason. Your pet may be anxious, depressed, frightened, excited, or could have a urinary tract contamination
. A male dog may be marking his territory. Consult a veterinarian who are able to help identify and treat these issues.
