Owning the dog as your pet is one of the best choices that you can. They are the most loyal animals and can help you in different ways specially to build up your character. But the problem is you need to know the right way to train them to be more obedient specially when it is time to helping them know how to potty train.
Potty training for the dogs can start after 3 or 5 months after their birth. Here are some tips that you can follow:
Know their bathroom schedule
As the owners, you need to understand what time your puppy takes the toilet breaks. Every dog is different and unique in their own way but they have different breeds. The common hour is 1 to two or after drinking or eating.
Take them to the toilet
As they are about to go, you should bring them out or can lock them in the toilet. Make a simple cycle for them that they can understand the cycle immediately and they will follow the cycle easily as they grow old.
Praise or clap your hands
Just like the small baby, puppies can understand the right or wrong based on the expression of a person. As the puppy is doing the right thing, they will understand gradually that they are doing the right thing. If they do not remove the piss or bowel in the right direction you can scold them by hitting lightly or by making sound with hands. But don’t create pain just make them understand that they are doing wrong.
They cannot think like us but they can understand our gestures. You can show them little fear so that they do the work accordingly. They need your guidance only to grow good habits. This not a fast process but the potty habits should grow gradually. You need to wait for one month or more and you will find that the dogs are going to the right place to potty.
The best strategy for potty training is developing a plan and sticking to it. You must remain consistent in the efforts to grow the right potty habit for your dog. You if the dog begins to develop a consistency it will understand the right time to go out or to the toilet. Reward their good behavior with a treat like a toy or any other dog supplies also.
