How To Potty Train A Dog - Dog Potty Training TipsOne of the essential part of house training a dog is potty training. Although adult dogs can be trained, it is best to start potty training while your dog is young else cleaning up a messy puppy can be quite harassing . Ideally when the dog is seven or eight weeks old that is the best time to start potty training the pet.
Before you can start potty training, recognize the symptoms that indicate that your dog now needs to eliminate. Digging the floor, sniffing around and prancing around the house may indicate that the dog needs. Once you see these signs you can take the dog out. This will enforce the idea that each time the dog needs to eliminate it should go out. You can also take the dog out at the same time each day, preferably once every morning, noon and night. When you go you must choose a spot where your dog can finish its job. Do not try to distract or play with the dog during this time. Make sure you use a comfortable leash so that the puppy does not run away when it goes outdoors. You can also use certain verbal cues like “go potty” or “out” to indicate that the dog needs to go out during this time. Once the puppy learns to go out to eliminate, praise it profusely and shower your dog with treats. This will enforce the good behavior in the dog’s mind. It is also a good idea to start potty training within a confined space preferably a spacious dog crate. However it is important to ensure that the dog does not stay in the crate for more than two hours. You can also try using a dog potty if you intend to train your dog to defecate inside the house. While it may be difficult to train older dogs, it is possible and in fact easier since adult dogs have greater control on their bladder. It is important to know the dog’s temperament and change your training tactics accordingly when dealing with older dogs. Despite all your efforts accidents will happen. Instead of chastising your dog, clean up the spot with some vinegar and continue with your potty training efforts.
