Make Your Puppy Go Potty!
You may not believe it, but you can
Train Puppies and older dogs to go to the bathroom on command.
Many puppies can hear words that are repeated and associate them with what you want them to do. For instance, when your puppy is outside relieving him or herself, say
You should choose one specific spot for command training to relieve themselves. They will associate this spot with going potty.
The way you praise your puppy will have a positive affect on command potty training. If you use the phrase ‘go potty’, be precise and clear. Some puppies may hear the word as ‘no’ if you are not clear.
You could also choose a different phrase such as ‘potty’ or ‘do your job’ and make it sound less like ‘no potty’. You can command train your puppy for any word command and they will eventually learn it.
The one thing you must do is be consistent.
Do not use different phrases or words that should mean the same thing, the puppy does not understand this and will become confused.
When using any type of command training, you should use praise as well as little puppy treats. This just helps reinforce a good job and the puppy will associate the command with what you want them to do so they can have a treat.
A puppy as well as an older dog wants to please their owners. You just need a little patience and understanding to accomplish this.
Command housebreaking a puppy can be done indoors or outdoors.
If you prefer the puppy to urinate outdoors, this will work well. If you prefer the dog to urinate on paper or puppy pads indoors, you will place the puppy on the pad and instruct him or her to potty. This has to be done all the time.
Many times, after a puppy is completely potty trained, you can stop the commands.
