How to Potty Train Your Puppy

Potty training a puppy takes patience, kindness and just a little planning. Before starting, have these helpful tools on hand:
A crate is an acceptable way to maintain your non-housebroken dog confined for brief periods of time 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 up the floor within an inside place where you?d like your pup to go.
Pet-specific stain and odor removers contain enzymes that help remove, not just mask, odors from pet messes.

Create a command and a reward

Establish a order that your pup can understand. Say, ?Go potty? while your dog does their business. This phrase association can help your pet learn 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 prize this behavior with a treat, though.

Timing is everything

Set up a consistent plan for potty breaks. First, maintain your dog?s nourishing times constant and be sure you remove leftover food between meals. This will help your dog create a natural, predictable rhythm for reduction.
Recommended 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 during the night (until your pup is five months old)
> When you notice your puppy sniffing an area while turning circles around it - which means they need to go NOW.

Teach your pet shop ( where you can go

Canines are creatures of habit; so the quicker they understand where business should be achieved, the sooner they?ll stop going elsewhere. To help speed up the process:
Take your dog to the same spot for every potty break.
Keep your home and yard environment the same during potty training. Redecorating or renovations might confuse your pet.

Potty problems

Some canines learn faster than others, but if your puppy appears to be having a unique number of accidents, there may be a physical or psychological reason. Your pet may worry, depressed, frightened, thrilled, or could have a urinary system disease. A male dog may be marking his territory. Consult a veterinarian who can help identify and treat these issues.
