Have you just gotten your first dog or puppy? Are you still trying to decide if it's actually worth the hassle of getting a dog? This article will show you that learning how to potty train dogs really isn't as daunting as it seems and the reward of success is well worth it.
There are some things to keep in mind when beginning the potty process.
#1 Most puppies will signal that they're about to potty, whether it's through barking or sitting by the door
#2 If you have just recently acquired your dog, if possible, try and obtain the dog's house training and behavior history from the previous owner. This can make a big difference in how to proceed because if the owner has taught the dog differently then how you are trying to teach the dog it can get very confusing for them.
#3 Compared to a puppy, an older dog is easier to train because it will respond better to commands. More mature dogs will have also fully developed muscles for bladder control. This just means that the dog will be able to wait longer to use the bathroom then in comparison with a puppy.
#4 Give the dog praise after it uses the bathroom because dogs, like humans, need encouragement after doing something right
#5 Dogs don't like to eat in play in the same place that they use the bathroom, so if the animal has an accident, make sure to clean it up and deodorize it. Also, if you are going to potty train your dog to use the bathroom indoors, make sure you choose a suitable area. A cheap and easy way to get a dog to use the bathroom indoors is to use newspaper in a certain room.
Potty training dogs isn't hard but it takes time and patience. After a while, it will get to the point when you don't have to worry about making sure your dog or puppy makes it outside every other hour. The dog or puppy will let you know when it needs to go, or if you have a fenced in area that is connected to your house, they will take care of themselves.
I can speak from experience when I say that once the dog or puppy is potty trained that it was worth it. No longer do you have to worry about frequent messes on your carpet or floor.
