Puppy Potty Training

How to Potty Train a Puppy

Potty training a puppy can be dificult but it is much easier if you have the right information and tips. I hope you enjoy this article Puppy Potty Training

There is nothing as loving and wonderful as a cheerful, playful puppy, but sadly, there is nothing as painful and irritating as cleaning up puppy poop and pee. The truth is that it is easy to potty train some dog breeds faster than others, but all dogs can be potty trained and they must be so that you can enjoy your pet.

Puppies are like babies, they love all the attention they can get, and need to be disciplined. They understand routine very well. So the best thing you can do is to establish a routine as soon as you can. Puppies have a very simple system, much like little children. The best thing to do is to check the time when you feed or give them water. They will need to go about twenty minutes after a meal or a drink. So all you need to do is get the puppy into the yard around the time it needs to poop. Just like when you have a baby and you have to arrange your schedule around the baby, you need to arrange your schedule around your pup. It will be easier to train the pup if you do this.

It may be difficult to follow your routine in the night, but many pet owners have found it easy to keep a pile of newspapers near the exit to the yard in the beginning. The puppy soon starts associating the newspapers with outdoors and messes over there at night. The puppy can easily use this until it develops a stronger bladder control.

Do not combine play and potty time. Puppies love to play all the time, and it is going to be frustrating for you if you take the puppy out at 4 am for a poop and it starts playing, and messes up as soon as you give up and bring it in. Be sure to praise the puppy when it does its business outside and scold it when it messes up inside so that it gets the message early.
