How to Properly Potty Train a Puppy

Potty training a dog requires a consistent daily schedule. By making house training a routine, your dog will develop a sense of security and confidence. It will also strengthen the bond between you and your dog. Print out a schedule and keep it somewhere everyone in the house can see it. You can also keep a journal to record accidents and progress between potty breaks. Use the journal to reinforce the training process. Using specific words and timing can help your dog understand what’s expected of him and encourage him to go outside.

To train your dog to come to you, call out its name and reward it with a treat. This will entice the dog to follow your call. You can also try crying on the floor to entice your pup. Do not use the “No” command, as this will teach your dog to run away from you. Instead, use a treat or praise when it does respond to your call. Make sure to reward your pup each time he or she runs to you.

Another important rule for potty training is to follow your schedule as closely as possible. Your dog needs a predictable schedule, such as mealtime and potty breaks. You should never let your puppy run around unsupervised. Then, if your pup does not go to the bathroom inside the house, make sure you have time for a longer time. Otherwise, the dog may become accustomed to the time you give it. In any case, it’s important to enforce the rules and make sure your dog complies with them.

In addition to being well-behaved, your dog needs to be socialized. It’s important to socialize your puppy with people of similar personalities and interests. While socializing your pup, remember that quality matters more than quantity. Don’t force it to play with another dog; instead, choose friends and family who match your dog’s personality. Structured play sessions will help your dog understand commands. By giving it a routine, you’ll soon find that your pup is a better listener and a happier dog.

You can also use a puppy’s food as a reward for good behavior. When the puppy is small, use a busy toy to lure him toward you with treats. In addition, teach him the correct leash manners. It’s important to keep him busy with fun activities to avoid boredom and frustration. Remember to reward your puppy for performing the desired behavior! You can also enroll your dog in an accredited class for training. This will give your dog a better chance of surviving in the world.

You should begin working on commands outside the house at this age. As your puppy becomes more familiar with these commands, you can extend your walks and introduce more distractions. By doing so, you can build on the command. By this age, your puppy will learn to behave better around people and environment, including children. You should also start working on the heel command and other commands to make him respond to your instructions. You can also try using a long line to practice commands outside the home.
