Dog & Puppy Housetraining
Your new puppy is home and you've started the housebreaking process. This is the most important training your pup will receive. Mistakes that occur with housebreaking can cause more problems between you and your pet than those encountered with any other form of training. Be patient and stay calm.
Housebreaking Rule Number One: This is the most important rule. If you don't catch your puppy doing it then don't punish him for it!
Housebreaking Rule Number Two: Praise your puppy when things go right. Don't let this be a situation where your only action is saying "No" when he is caught in the midst of using the wrong area. If he does it right let him know!
Put down pretreated Drs. Foster & Smith Piddle Pads, encouraging him to use these areas for eliminating. The pads are scented with a chemical that attracts the puppy to use them. Whenever you see him starting into his "pre-potty pattern," such as walking around and sniffing the floor, gently pick him up and carry him over to the pad. Praise him when he eliminates.
When all goes well and he is using the pads consistently, either move the pads closer to the door and/or place another set outside. Make the transition from concentrating the toilet habits to one spot inside the home to one spot outside the home. Finally, eliminate the inside pads when they are no longer needed..
Piddle Pads are also good for sick or older dogs who need to eliminate more often, and pets recovering from surgery.
Housetraining your new puppy involves a little patience and encouragment from you to use the piddle pads in a designated area indoors, or outside in an area you have chosen for him/her to relieve themselves.
Dogs living in the city without the conveinence of outdoor yards can be housetrained to 'do their business' indoors in a designated area with products like Piddle Pads® or a 'potty box' and odor eliminators.
