 Puppy Training 

Puppy potty training is essential if you are hoping for a house broken dog. It is advisable that you learn about the various aspects of this training in order to achieve success at it rather than simply focusing on giving the command.

When you bring a pup home, try and ensure that the canine is between 4 to 6 weeks old. Remember that the puppy will be suffering from some separation anxiety and cuddling is quite important at this stage. Right from the first day the pup must understand its sleeping area, the puppy potty training although, can wait for a day or two until the canine is settled in.

So, for the first day you can simply take your puppy out every two hours and encourage it to walk around and find a spot to go potty. It is also essential that you remember in exploring the house, the pup is bound to create some mess and therefore, having the appropriate cleaning tools will help a lot.

Cleaning up is quite a process in successful puppy potty training. These tiny pups have a heightened sense of smell and will repeat the ‘accident’ at the spot where they had gone before, if they get a whiff of it. So make sure that apart from the visual you also camouflage the smells with other strong ones.

Before you get the pup home, it is important that you build a crate that is large enough to accommodate the pup and yet not too big. The animal should be able to take a turn in the crate and settle down into a cuddled sleep with ease. Put the animal to bed here. Following their natural instinct, these pups will not soil their ‘sleep’ area.

Beginning Potty Training

Once the pup is able to walk around with ease and has warmed up to its new environment, you can begin the puppy potty training process. This will require you to take the pup out every three hours. Do not carry the animal but encourage it to follow you outside. Give positive commands like ‘come let’s go poop’, etc.

Rewards are crucial even for these tiny tots and those of us who have kept dogs before know that a biscuit that will work well for an adult dog, will not do well for a pup. So keep small and soft rewards to offer to the pup, once it does manage to accomplish what is asked of him. Petting and words of praise should also go hand in hand with the rewards.

The Paper Method

For those of us who have had a litter at home, there will be a fair amount of potty management required before the pups actually go to their new adopted houses. At this stage the paper technique of puppy potty training is known to be much more effective, since the pups don’t walk around too much and covering the area that they do with paper is fairly easy. In fact this technique also helps in cleaning up quite nicely.

Dog Potty Systems

As a side note, dog potty systems have become ever increasingly popular due to the messy cleanup that is necessary after your dog or pup uses the newspaper that has been laid out for him or her. The dog potty systems are self contained and easily washable so that you don’t have to engage in a rather extensive cleaning up process of urine and feces.

Puppy potty training is not rocket science and anyone who is willing to offer the puppy affection and a schedule along with a good potty training program is sure to achieve success.
