An adorable puppy can turn into a nightmare quickly as they create messes all over your home. It's at this time that you need to start dog potty training. While it is far from a pleasant experience, it is necessary. In this article, I will show you a quick and effective way for potty training your puppy.
First thing you do is to set fixed times for the dog to go to the bathroom. Usually these times will be when the dog wakes up, after the dog eats and before going to sleep at night. In any case, make sure you consistently take your dog outside to go to the bathroom at fixed times. This means that feeding them at fixed times is going to be required.
Second, create an association for the dog to realize that it is time to go to the bathroom. For example, you can use a certain hand signal each time before you take the dog out, or you can use a verbal command.
The third step in the potty training process is to make sure to consistently take them to the same spot to go to the bathroom. What you're doing is conditioning them to go to the bathroom by taking them to the same spot to go to the bathroom every time. Just like any other type of dog training, potty training requires commands. When you tell a dog to sit, it fits if you have trained it properly. If you give them a command to go the bathroom they will know that it is okay. So once you take them outside, give them a command to go the bathroom.
Finally, give them positive reinforcement after they have done the necessary. Let them know what a good dog they are and how you are proud of them. You can even give them a treat the first few times they do it correctly so that they get the point.
Dog potty training is not a very hard concept to understand. However, the most important thing is to be disciplined to be consistent with your efforts. This means consistently taken them out the same time, to the same spot, with the same command and always positively reinforcing good behavior.
If you can do this, then potty training will be as painless and easy as possible for you.
