Potty training is an essential part of caring for a pup and should be taken seriously by all canine owners. Not only will this help keep your home clean and free of mess, but it will also help to establish trust between you and your pup, and will teach your pup the necessary skills to live in a human home.
Consistency is Key!
When potty training your pup, it is important to be consistent with your routine. This means taking your pup out to the same spot each time they need to go. Praise them when they successfully go in the right spot and make sure to reward them for a job well done.
Potty Training Warning Signs
Additionally, be mindful of the signs that your pup is about to go. These can include sniffing around, circling, and whining. When you see these behaviors, take them outside immediately.
Listen... Mistakes Happen
If accidents do occur, it is important to clean up any mess right away. Use an enzymatic cleaner to ensure that all odors are removed as this will help to prevent your pup from returning to the same spot. Most importantly, be patient and understanding with your pup during the potty training process. Dogs are creatures of habit and it may take some time for them to get used to their new routine.
By following these tips and being consistent, you will be able to effectively potty train your pup and help keep your home clean and free of mess. Potty training is an essential part of owning a pup, so start as soon as possible! Potty training can be difficult, especially if your schedule doesn't allow you to be consistent with your potty training schedule. Luckily, at Full Kontrol Canine, part of our Basic Obedience Dog Training Program includes potty training!
