Easy Potty Training Tips

  1. Feed your puppy on a strict time schedule so you have a better idea of when they’ll need to go potty.
  2. They need to go out right after naps or sleep, after exercise, and after eating and drinking.
  3. Take your puppy directly to their designated potty place after they eat, sleep or play.
  4. Seclude your puppy. Don’t give them free reign of your home because that will just set your puppy up to fail. You can use a dog crate, a puppy play pen, a crate inside of a puppy play pen or even a section of the house you’ve sectioned off and designated as your puppy zone. You can easily use baby gates to section off an area in your home.
  5. When taking your puppy out to go potty make sure you use your body language and your voice to help your puppy understand that this is potty time not play time.
  6. Repeat a potty que like “Go potty” over and over until they finally go and then give them a party with LOTS & LOTS of praise and maybe even a small treat.Don’t go overboard with the treats one or two small treats is all you need and make sure to give it to them right after they go potty so they know what the treat is for.

There are many reasons you should avoid punishing your dog or puppy if you find an “accident” in your house. It’s fine to interrupt your dog if you catch him in the act—say “No” quickly and then rush him outside to finish the job (providing reinforcement for any outdoor pottying, of course). But, punishing after the fact is never a good idea. It will not help your dog be more successful in eliminating outside, and it can also backfire.

    HELP!! We have a 12 week old male doodle. He is doing great with the crate, and sleeps through the night without any potty accidents. But during the day, he is peeing about 3 times every hour! He is on a leash with me and gives almost no signals that he is about to potty, no circling and maybe one sniff. He just squats and pees. He is very smart and already sits and lays down with just verbal commands. We go to a puppy class weekly. What else can I do? Is peeing that often normal? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

    The most important thing is to feed on schedule and count to ten while they are drinking. Find a consistent way to limit access. I crate or place a hands-free leash on me, So I am more aware of when they eat and drink. in preparation for service dog training. The crate is simply an artificial den. One hour per month of age in restricted puppy zone, then overnight as soon as they are potty aware.
