One of the most important steps that you will take toward a long and happy life together is learning how to train your dog at the right time and place. There are two alternatives when deciding how to potty train them: train them to relieve themselves outside or have them indoors on a tray or a pee pad and then move them to outdoors.
Take Your Dog Out Regularly
At first, take the dog out as much as every hour and wait a few minutes to see if they go to the bathroom., This decreases their chances of going to the toilet inside, and when they go to the toilet in the right place, remember to them. Your dog will begin to learn over time, depending on how closely you follow a schedule and how easily your dog learns. This can take couple of weeks or even months.
Stick To A Feeding Schedule
Usually, feeding your puppy two meals a day is recommended. Feed each meal daily at the same time. Naturally, dogs will want to go the bathroom shortly after eating, so maintaining a regular feeding schedule will reduce household misunderstanding and accidents.
Potty Train Them On A Crate
If you are not around, give your pet a place to poop, such as a crate. To help your dog in this case, a crate is a great option. This limits incidents in your home and keeps your house clean. Note, the crate ought to be wide enough for them to get up, turn around and lie down.
Potty Train Them On Pads
Determine an enclosed area to begin house training, such as the bathroom or the laundry room. Regardless of the area you decide, make sure it’s pet-proofed and remove any harmful products. Set up the space by covering the floor with pee pads and placing your dog’s bed in a corner of the room.
Offer Them Treats
Always have treats available, whether you’re potty training your dog or training your pup for something else. Treat them immediately after they eliminates so that they know that after pottying at the right place, they will get a reward.
Some dogs learn more easily than others, so there may be a physical or emotional explanation if your puppy appears to have an excessive number of accidents. Your dog may be nervous, depressed, scared, excited, or could have a urinary tract infection. Consult a veterinarian who can help diagnose these problems and treat them.
