Train your dog to ring door bell to go potty click here:
Today we will be learning how to toilet train your puppy.
Toilet training does not have to be frustrating if you know what to do. You just need to be consistent with your routine and take the puppy out often and on time.
Your puppy likes to potty on the same spot and in similar times. We can work with that.
The routine is always take your puppy outside for potty
After each meal
After it just wake up from a sleep
After it had a play
And after a set time
The interval extends as the puppy grow older. My cane corso puppy was out for potty training every 30 to 45 mins when he was 10 weeks old.
After 12 weeks old we can easily wait for 1 to 1.5 hour.
Now at 18 weeks he only goes out for potty after every 3 to 4 hours.
Whenever your puppy started sniff around the house walking around take it out for potty training.
How to you train your dog to potty? It’s simple.
Take it out to a potty spot.
Use your special word for potty. It can be potty, it can be "Go toilet".
One the puppy started to potty, keep using the work so it will learn the work mean the action.
Right after they finish, give him a lot of praise. Like good boy! Potty!
Why is the word important? Because whenever you say the work, they potty!
If you had to take your dog potty and your do not have much time, this word can really help you.
Do not stay outside for too long the puppy ended up playing. Potty training should be focused on potty only. If your puppy keep playing instead of potty. Take the puppy inside and come back again in a few minutes.
Most people I know who struggle with potty training are people who do not take the puppy outside potty training often enough. So the puppy ended up doing it in the house and developed its habit and left the scent everywhere in the house.
As mentioned earlier, all dogs love to potty on the same spot. If your puppy toilet in the house, you need to do your best to clean up the scent. Otherwise you will notice the puppy go back and potty on the same spot again. The best thing to do is to clean up as much as you can. Then use a pet odor remover to break down the scent. Water and soap cannot remove the odor. You cannot smell it but your dog can. Only this kind of product can break down the scent. You can get these online, in every pet store or supermarket cheaply.
Accidents do happy. now let’s talk about correction.
My friend’s friend told him, if you found your dogs pee or poo in the house already. Grab some newspaper or magazine. Roll it up like this and bang! Hit yourself in the head! It’s a joke but the meaning behind it is correct. It is the owner or the trainer’s fault. You didn't take it out on time or not often enough, or you didn’t clean up the odor. If you see pee or poo clean it up property, do not punish your puppy as it’s too late. It does not make sense to your puppy if you pointing at the pee or poo they did in the past and get angry about it as other times you were happy when they potty in front of you. They do not understand it’s the location you are upset about.
The correction that works: If you see the puppy potty inside during the act, while it’s doing it, immediately pick it up and take it outside to toilet train on the right spot. This way they can understand.
If you see the puppy circling around ready to squat down to potty. Run and take it outside and do the potty training. Praise it alot if it’s a success. They will be happier than you about the success.
How long does it take to completely potty train a dog.
Every puppy is different, there is no a set of time.
I have had a 8 weeks old puppy came to my house, she wouldn’t potty anywhere in the house. No training required. She just knew.
Ember here was fully potty trained when she reach 16 weeks, which is about 5 to 6 weeks of training.
And Vinci who arrived 10 weeks of age took only about 3 weeks to learn.
More more committed you are, with routine and all mentioned above, the faster your puppy will learn.
It is really up to the trainer to make it happen.
