5 Awesome Tips for Potty Training [Continued from Last Week]

My last post covered advice on how to get the most out of your potty training. Today, I’ll go a bit further into that with a few tricks I’ve learned in my time.

5 Tips to Help Make Potty Training Easy

1.       You’ll need to crate –train your pooch, it’s the perfect method for potty-training and many pet owners swear by this method. You obtain  the perfect sized crate by finding one that your dog can stand up and turn around in comfortably. Be sure you don’t get a crate that’s too big or it won’t work. Puppies don’t like to use the bathroom in the same area that they sleep in, so this is how they learn to hold it. Take your puppy to the bathroom every time you let him out of the cage so that he gets used to going outside.

2.       Make a set schedule and adhere to it. Get your dog on a strict routine, and he’ll begin to understand when potty time is, and then wait for that.

3.       Make communication easy. Always ring a bell when you take the dog out, and then leave some jingle bells nearby the play area. Your puppy will eventually associate the noise with bathroom time, and will jingle them to let you know it’s time!

4.       Hand accidents correctly, never punish your pup for going to the bathroom in the house- just correct the behavior while it’s happening.

Products like Potty Patch and Bio Dog are great for emergencies.
