Tips To Help With Potty Training Your Dog

No matter what kind of a dog you have, one of the most difficult tasks you will be faced with is potty training your dog.

As with kids, it takes time to potty train your dog and help them learn where the appropriate place to go to the bathroom is.

If you are going to have any luck at all, you have to start by taking them out frequently.

When first getting your puppy or new dog, you want to get in the habit of taking them outside as much as possible.

This will help them learn that outside is where they go to the bathroom.

Instead of just going inside, they will quickly realize where the appropriate place to go to the bathroom is.

Although we all wish our puppies could hold it for an eight hour period, the fact of the matter is they cannot.

It is up to you to keep an eye on your puppy as all it takes is a few seconds for them to do their business.

By watching any warning signs or hints that they may need to go outside, you will be able to stop them before they go.

It is important you do not vary their diet while potty training your dog.

This will create a change in their system which will ultimately fluctuate their bathroom cycle.

Maintaining a consistent diet will help them get used to the food they are eating allowing their stomach to properly digest the food.

Although every parent wants to give their little puppy treats for being cute, make sure you are only giving them treats for going into the crate.

Too many treats will mess with their diet as well. For this reason, keep your treat-giving to a minimum.

Something that many people do not do is associate their dog with the words “go outside.”

It is imperative you take your dog on walks to give them more exercise.

Every time you are going to take them for a walk, you want to ask them if they want to go outside.

In addition, learn to say this every time you let them out to go to the bathroom.

This will help them realize it is time to go to the bathroom.

The last tip to help you with potty training your dog is praising them every time they do go outside.

Reinforcing good behavior will help them realize where the appropriate place to go to the bathroom is.

Punish them for going inside and praise them when they alert you that they need to go outside.

This free online guide gives you tips for how to train your dog not to bark and how to stop other bad dog habits like jumping on people, begging for treats, destroying your stuff, and to curb your dog from playing rough.
