Potty Training Puppies

 
Author: Steve Searls
 

Once you bring your little puppy home, there are several questions in the back of your mind that may trouble you, like what steps do you take concerning potty training puppies.

You should remember that bringing home a young dog is like bringing home a baby. It is completely helpless and dependent on you. So the same way your child can give you sleepless nights, you can be sure that he can too! But you will never regret getting it home because it will fill it with love and happiness.

You will be happy to know that potty training your pup is not all that difficult. Here are some tips and techniques of puppy potty training that really work.

1) First buy a kennel or a play pen. Be sure that it's big enough for him to grow into, but not too big.

2) Use puppy pads to line the kennel or play pen. The play pen should provide enough room for the bedding , as well as the puppy pads. But since a kennel will be a little smaller, your new pet may find it a little difficult to adjust in the beginning. Dogs are unlikely to relieve themselves where they sleep, but when they are so young, they may have a hard time holding in for any length of time.

Besides from being an excellent way to potty train, a play pen is also helpful when you just cannot give enough attention to your new pet. Your little pup can remain safe in the play pen and will not get into anything to create a mess.

3) Use puppy pads or newspapers for him to relieve himself about half an hour after you feed him.

4) If you catch your pup relieving itself elsewhere, immediately put it on a newspaper or pad where it can finish doing its business. Your innocent pup is unlikely to respond to rude behavior. A mild scolding may be needed if you catch him in the act, but you should never hit him. Preferably, you should reward your him or her with praise or even treats when they do their business on the papers or pads. This way they will learn things quicker.

5) As soon as your young whelp has received its third set of shots you can begin putting them outside to do his business. You can move the newspaper outside to help them get used to it. Take him out every hour or so, preferably to a designated area. Once he goes, praise him and play for a while. Just don't be surprised if he ends up going again ... on you. Puppies are like that, but should grow out of it in time.

6) Once they grow a little older you can start to train them to go outside.

Following these simple tips will result in your young dog being well trained and well behaved. You may find potty training puppies to be somewhat difficult initially. But keep trying and he will eventually understand what is being expected out of him. Like it is with any other training, it is also very important that you follow a routine with potty training and develop your puppy into a well mannered adult dog that you can be proud of.
