You got a new puppy.
Housebreaking, house-training, or potty training— no matter what you call it, all new dog owners want to teach their new puppy not to mess inside their new home. The best way to achieve this is to set rules and stick to them
By following and setting strict rules about where a puppy should and should not leave. Boxes and puppy pads are useful training tools and help with the potty training program.
Waking up in the morning
Routines are important for puppies. Each day should start the same way for you and your puppy. When the alarm clock rises in the morning, wake up and take your puppy out of the box and outside to do his thing.
This should be done at the same time every morning. Don’t start here by making coffee, reading emails or other morning activities.
Keep the puppy box in or near the bedroom so you can hear a whisper or howl if the dog needs to go out at night or before the alarm sounds. When the puppies are young, you can lift your son out of the box to carry him out or to a place where he can do his things. This prevents them from falling on the floor on their way to the door.
Always use the same door and the same place where you want your dog to puppy, and keep them on a leash during training (even in the gated yard) so you can see what is happening and react immediately.
Another ritual is breakfast. After you have used your puppy’s potty, it’s time to prepare your first meal of the day. Always keep this schedule at the same time each day. This will help the puppy regulate the elimination so you can set your schedule at a great time.
After a meal, wait for 5 to 30 minutes and take your puppy outside. The younger the puppy, the faster they should be brought out to the potty after eating. As your puppy grows older, they will learn to control their bladder better and be able to hold it for longer each day. Most puppies eat three to four meals a day as they grow up. Most puppies need to get in after a meal, so it’s important to pay attention to this short follow-up period.
Also, follow when your puppy is drinking water. Pay attention to this like a meal and take it to the pot shortly afterward. Choosing a highly digestible dog food will facilitate learning and avoiding feeding two hours before bedtime will help.
After playing and taking a nap
It is often the case that a young puppy needs to go to the pot in addition to the first step in the morning and after every meal. These usually include periods after play and naps.
Day naps are mini versions of the morning routine. Make sure that every time your puppy sleeps, he or she is likely to have a potty on waking up.
During play, gastrointestinal stimulation can also give your puppy a need to take a break from the pot. Learn to follow some seemingly random tips to get your dog out. These may include sniffing the floor or carpet, hiking around the family, hanging out or running to the door. When you see one of these characters, take the puppy to the pot right away.
Praise for the success of the pot practice
When you set up a routine to take your puppy out after sleeping, eating, and playing, you also need to focus on what to do when you’re out.
Always find the same place that will become your puppy’s “potting place” and always take your dog to this same place. Puppies learn best when they get used to the same routines. Then it learns what to do in that place. Stand still and wait until the puppy is ready, and when you notice them starting, give the voice command or signal a “go to the pot.” Wait for the puppy to complete his needs and remember to give plenty of thanks. Say “good boy/girl!” And then give your puppy goodies.
Do this whenever you are outdoors (or indoors if you use puppy pillows or dog trash cans). The puppy will soon realize that doing the right thing brings a lot of love and treatment. Once you are gone, play with the puppy for a few minutes before rushing back inside.
However, puppies are not always in need of a potty as you go out; you may need to take them inside and come back out in minutes. And even if they go, they may have to go back soon, so stay alert. However, the puppies learn quickly and life soon becomes easier.
However, never punish a puppy if damage occurs inside. They will always happen. You can draw them to their attention and you can point the damage and say “uh-oh”, they will probably stop. Gently lift the puppy and take him out and thank him sincerely when he’s done. Always clean dirty interiors with suitable cleaning agents to prevent the puppy from smelling and starting to keep it potted.
Some owners have had good results by setting the clock on the door handle and training the puppy to ring the clock when they need to go out. You can start this exercise by ringing the bell when you go out with the dog and thank the puppy as soon as they learn to play the bell alone.
Eventually leaving the dog home alone.
When you have to leave home and leave your puppy alone for several hours, the puppy should stay home alone during the day. If you’re not sure how long your puppy can be alone at home, use the month plus one rule. Take your puppy’s age in months and add one so that’s the maximum amount of hours that your puppy should be comfortable alone without a worry. That is, a 3-month-old puppy plus one responds to 4 hours that they should be able to stay in the box without a mess
Remember, always before going to bed at night, is to take your puppy out for the last shot before going to bed. A puppy is usually able to hold his bladder for a longer period of time when he is asleep and not active.
“When asked how long a potty training session will take, it depends entirely on the puppy and the schedule you keep. If training starts early, a 6-month-old puppy should start learning to not make puppies inside. However, check the puppy. The puppy may have a urinary tract infection or other health problem that causes a delay in training the house. ”
By scheduling meals, walks, playtimes and other activities. By sticking to your daily routine, you and your puppy are on their way to success in potty training, but it doesn’t happen overnight, so be patient.
Good luck and love for your new puppy. ❤❤
