Dog Potty Training: Tips and Tricks

>> 12/21/09

Dog potty training is highly impossible if your dog is no longer a pup. The best time to potty train your dogs is when they are still pups because the older they get, the harder it gets for you to teach them anything so once you get that puppy, start dog potty training as early as possible. Old dogs cannot learn new tricks, remember?

The first rule to remember is once your dog eat, you would only have to wait for 15 minutes before it makes that food into poop and that goes the same way with water -only this time it's pee. Your job as his or her owner is to get your dog do his or her business where you want it and not cleaning up poop all your dog's life.

Training rule number 2 is for you and your pup to go out in your backyard early in the morning or as soon as the both of you are awake already. Do this after he finishes his first meal as well. Dogs, especially puppies, love taking naps. Be sure that when your puppy wakes up from his nap that you take him out for a walk in your backyard. If you love giving your pup lots of snacks, wait for 15 minutes for him to digest it and then go out for a walk with your dog again so he could do his pooping in the yard or wherever you want him to.

Rule number 3 is to cheer your puppy when he finally produces poop. Do this when he poops in the right place, your happy voice will let your dog know that you are happy in seeing him do this. Once your dog sees you are happy, he will do it over and over and over again.

Rule 4 -feed your puppy when you can wait 15 minutes and have enough time to take him outside. This goes with his water intake as well but if you give your dog proper potty training, you will not have any problems with how much he has to drink in a day.

If your dog is still not potty trained this becomes a big problem during summertime because dogs need to drink lots of water to keep their body at the right temperature. You can save cleaning time by having your dog learn how to tap on something or maybe ring a bell when he needs to pee. What needs to be done in this case is before you bring your dog to his peeing area, make him ring a bell. Do it every time you two go out so that he will make it into a routine. This will greatly help you get a tip off that your dog is about to go.

Rule number 5 will be a bit difficult for puppy and dog lovers but it has to be implemented. Once your dog had a poop accident i.e. pooping in a prohibited space, ignore your dog and clean up his mess as quietly as possible. Punishing or yelling your dog will not make him learn it will only confuse him. For some dogs, you yelling or being mad might be a bit amusing because hey, they cannot understand your language!

Rule number 6 is to keep your dog with you wherever you go. This will prevent poop and pee accidents. Remember that this will also help you sustain a healthy relationship with your dog. Have fun with the dog potty training!
