Puppy potty training 101 – Part 8

You have a strong love for dogs and you just got a new puppy, but you just can’t seem to understand how to successfully house train them.

Here are some of my suggestion to you that are important factors to be successful in house training your dog.

1. House training your dog must have the support of your whole family member. Good and Effective house training comes from consistency in you and your family actions towards the dog by knowing and following the training and understanding the rules set forth for the dog.

2. Knowing the background of the dog you are bringing home, like the breed, the age, where the dog comes from, whether the dog come from a well trained family or did he come from the shelter? Certain breed is easier to house train where others maybe a little bit more challenging and therefore you must be emotionally and mentally prepared for it. House training is best started when the dog is still young. If the dog is already matured and have not gone for house training, then it will be tougher to house train him but you should not refrain from it, as house training your dog will go a long way and it is definitely worth the effort.

3. It is much better and easier to set up new good habit than removing an old bad habit. So instill in your dog a new habit instead of trying to remove your dog bad habit. Whenever you can, always establish good habit from the beginning. When you can’t dispose the old bad habit, try to replace the old habit with new and more exciting habit for your dog.

4. Whenever achievable, you should house train your dog by yourself instead of placing it into the hand of professional dog trainer. This way you can have a better and meaningful relationship with your dog. Enjoy the process and enjoy each other companion. This will make house training a much easier and fun process.

5. Think about what role and part of the family, your dog will be, even before taking the dog home. There are things you have to decide like, which part of the house is your dog permitted to go into, where he should be sleeping, is there anything in your home that can cause harm to your dog, how does your dog will increase your cleaning up work, and many more consideration. Once you ponder this through, you will be able to prepare well and put all this thoughts into your house training materials.

6.Establish a routine and live by it. Whether the dog is young or has been abused, setting the routines ease them as they will slowly understand and know what is coming. Of course to be successful, you should establish routine in conjunction to your family routine and schedule. Be persistent and patient while conducting the routines, as not all dogs are able to learn house training in few days.

7. Establish consistent locations for your dog, such as potty place, sleeping place, etc. Don’t move or keep on changing these location as it may confused your dog. Dogs not only need consistent schedule and command, they also need consistent places to be in.

That is 7 keys to successfully house train your dog. House training your dog early will definitely provide the path to meaningful relationship between you and your dogs
