Quickly Master the Art of Puppy Housebreaking

Your puppy's formative years are the perfect time to begin . What you teach him during this time will most likely stick with him the rest of his life. One of the most imperative things you will be teaching him is where to potty.

Developing a routine early on in your puppy's life is a sure way to ease the strain that the potty training process can entail. You can start by getting your used to a sleep/eat/potty routine. Try feeding your puppy around the same time every day, making time for outside to potty. He will soon adjust his body to the routine.

A good way to save your sanity is to admit right off the bat that your puppy will have accidents. You can help lessen accidents by storing some newspaper in a constant spot so that your pup can at least familiarize himself with going in one area if he can't make it outside. This works particularly well if you don't have a “doggy door” and your has to depend upon you to take him outside.

The sooner you get to know your puppy's “eat/potty” routine, the easier potty-training will become. The most easy rule to go by is to remember that by the time you've fed or watered your pup, he will be ready to potty roughly 15 – 20 minutes later. This rule works very well if you can manage to have your puppy outside the proper potty at the time you expect he needs relief.

It is important that you are careful to separate “potty time” from “play time.” As it is natural for to want to explore, you should only encourage them at the appropriate times. Nothing is more frustrating than to be up at 2 am with your puppy running around the yard for twenty minutes, only to potty as soon as you get back inside.

This period in your puppy's life is a great one to start administering praise and discipline techniques. a lot of people prefer the terms “good boy/girl” and “no,” which can be still be used when your dog is older. Although puppies need a lot of repetition, routine, and firmness, remember that your pup will soon grow up, so enjoy his puppyhood while you can!
