Nothing is sweeter than a little puppy that you add to your family. Things can get bitter quick when you find little pee puddles all over your carpet though. It’s no secret that training a dog to potty outside rather than in, is no small task. It is also no secret that pet urine in your home leaves your house smelling less than desirable. So, what’s the secret? How can you get your puppy trained as quickly as possible? Carpet Care 2000 is here to share some tips to help you get your puppy trained as soon as possible.
Use a Crate to Potty Train Puppy
One of the best things you can do to help your dog get potty trained is the use a of a dog crate. Many people throw in the towel after a few days of trying to get used to it, but if you’re patient, this will get better. It works as a great potty training tool because dogs generally won’t use the bathroom where they sleep. If your dog spends time in a crate, you know they won’t be going potty. You can promptly take them outside whenever you open up that crate and get them used to going outdoors.
Take New Puppy Out to Pee Following a Schedule
Puppies are like kids; they thrive on a schedule. To get your puppy used to going potty outside, you need to follow the same schedule for taking the puppy outside throughout the day. You will always want to take the dog outside after these activities:
– Upon exiting the crate
– First thing in the morning
– Last thing at night
– After eating
– After drinking
– After playtime
– After taking a nap in the crate
Never Leave a Puppy Unsupervised
Your puppy will need to be supervised around the clock. This will feel like a full time job, but it will be worth it in the long run. You will start to learn your puppy’s mannerisms and take cues as to when your puppy needs to use the bathroom. This is another reason that a crate can be helpful. If you don’t have the time to sit and pay attention to your puppy all day long, you can give them a nap in the crate and know that they are in a space that is safe, and they won’t have accidents while in there.
