Any parent who gets a new puppy will be happy their children are so delighted but they will worry about the matter of potty training. Getting a new puppy means you must also accept you have to manage some tasks such as this. If you don’t manage to get this done properly you will see the result in spoilt furnishings your rugs and even your bed. You always get an aroma of ammonia in a house when puppies have not been properly potty trained. Proper potty training will overcome the problems and every pet owner would prefer it that way.
Everyone agrees that dogs are amongst the most intelligent of animals so it really shouldn’t be too hard to get them potty trained. Start out knowing that you need to be very attentive to any signs given by your dog when he needs to empty his body wastes. You can be pretty sure that the potty area is required if your puppy is going in circles while he sniffs the floor with his nose. Once you can recognise these signs your potty training for your dog should be straightforward.
It can become a chore to open the door each time your dog displays signs of needing to pee so having a doggy door can make life a lot easier. If you can train your dog to use the puppy door he will be able to go outside anytime he feels the need without you needing to be involved.
An excellent method to help potty train your dog is to have a regular routine of going for walks both morning and in the evening. When you arrive at the place you want him to pee or poop wait there until he does and then give him a lot of congratulations and encouragement.
It is important that you praise your pet when he urinates at the designated place. He starts out with no idea where to go to the bathroom but with your encouragement he will understand the correct place to go. Avoid punishment if he gets it wrong but try to show him you are not pleased if he makes an error. You will steadily make progress by showing you are pleased when he does things right and showing disappointment when he messes and he will become less nervous and more certain of what is right to do.
While the training is going on, ensure that you keep an eye on him at regular intervals. Dogs have their own pace of learning and you your patience may be put to test as well. As you train your puppy you should give him lots of affection to show you love him and he will want to please you.
It can be rather tedious constantly watching your dog for when it needs to visit the designated potty training area. Potty training will prove it’s worth one day when you realize that your puppy is house clean. Your house will remain clean and you will avoid the stinking odour of an untrained puppy.
