In this first puppy house training lesson you will learn to see how your pup views their environment and also how to teach them to communicate to you that they need to go potty.
How to Practice
When your pup needs to go potty put them on leash and walk them outside to the area you want them to potty in. Keep the leash loose and walk your dog around until they potty. As they are going tell them “go potty” so they associate the verbal with the action. After your pup goes potty reward them with praise or treats.
It is also important to remember to keep all your interactions with your puppy POSITIVE. Never scold them for having an accident or doing something you don’t want. Bringing emotion into dog training can really work against you. Dogs learn through association and puppies are not mature enough to always understand the association you intend. Therefore, if you yell at your pup they may associate your scold with YOU, not the undesirable action and it can harm your relationship with your new baby.
When you take your pup out to potty do not play with them. You do not want to distract them. When you are telling your puppy to “go potty” be sure to say it in a whisper. If you say it too loud your pup may stop going potty to engage with you and will not completely empty their bladder. They may go in the house and finish inside…which you don’t want.
