Tips To Potty Train Your Puppy

The idea of potty training a puppy may seem more than a little daunting with all the information available today. Fact is though that it's not hard if you have the right tools and methods. Below are a few tips that will start you on this adventure of interacting and teaching your new best friend how to behave. If you want your puppy to be happy, you need to realize that they need to be able to spend time indoors with you. Most dogs prefer to enjoy interacting and being with their human family and not living alone outdoors.

WHAT IS HOUSETRAINING? House training is teaching your puppy not to use your house as their personal bathroom.

Contrary to some pet owners, proper crate training methods are not cruel or unkind to your pet. Being kept outside for years because you didn't teach them that using your living room as a bathroom was not ok is truly cruel to a social animal like a puppy. Here are a number of Important Tips for Successful potty training a puppy

TIP #1 Never Scold or Punish your puppy. Dogs have few cognitive reasoning skills, if any. This means that hitting or yelling at your puppy will most likely result in confusion for your pet and not correction. So even if you are frustrated, don't ever hit, smack, or abuse your pet either physically or verbally.

TIP#2 OK, next tip is to be consistent in your house breaking efforts. Take your puppy outside immediately after a feeding. Don't wait for them to have an accident. The majority of puppies also cannot hold their water with a full tummy. A full stomach pushes on the bladder.

By taking them out at regular times, you lower the possibility of accidents. You also gain the opportunity to give your pup praise when they go the bathroom outside where you want them to go.

TIP#3 Speaking of consistency, use only one word to mean one thing. Don't use Bathroom one time, then potty the next. Your pet has enough trouble figuring out what you want without having you use different words that mean the same.

TIP#4 Watch your pet when inside your home. Penning your puppy isn't the same as house breaking. Your puppy needs to be confined to their crate whenever you cannot actively watch them. It only takes a few seconds for an accident to happen so you need keep a watchful eye to limit accidents.

The biggest problem with potty training a puppy is the need to remain consistent. The idea of moving a dog crate from the living room to the bedroom at night can be a chore.

Bad Dog Or Bad Owner
I'm frankly sick and tired of hearing about how dangerous Rottweilers, German Shepherds and other dogs are to society. The sensationalism caused by media coverage always seems to neglect much of the root cause of most dog biting incidents. This in turn drives politicians to create a blanket laws to address a symptom instead of facing the actual problem. The reason for this no doubt is because dealing with the problem is much more difficult and complex. Understand that I'm not suggesting...
