This is How Your Puppy Can Be House Trained in No Time at All

It is not that difficult to house-train a freshly fed puppy. Much depends on the right management and quick reactions. Read here how you can avoid small accidents in the house and apartment in the future.

Getting Puppies House Trained: Proper Management

Dogs are actually pretty clean by nature. Your puppy doesn’t want to pollute its territory either. However, the bladder of puppies is still quite small and untrained. In addition, their digestive system is not yet fully developed. This means that they have to come off very often. This can happen unexpectedly and suddenly, so small mishaps can occur.

It’s important that you develop an eye for when your pup is about to get his business done. Then quick action is the order of the day.

The Signs of Pee

Puppies usually have to step out after sleeping, eating, drinking, or playing. You should not let your offspring explore the apartment alone, but watch them closely. Shortly before they go about their business, puppies sniff intensively on the ground, they are noticeably restless or turn in circles. At this point at the latest, you should bring your offspring outside.

But even without these signs, you should take your pup out to the garden on a regular basis. The approximate guideline looks like this:

  • Puppies under three months of age: Every one and a half to two hours;
  • Puppies between the third and fourth months: every three hours;
  • Young dogs between the fifth and sixth months: Every four hours.

House Training in Puppies: Tricks

A grassy spot that is a bit out of the way is best for everyday business outside. The puppy can then concentrate, sniff and accept the place as its regular place.

He should be able to do his business in peace and quiet without being spoken to or distracted. Just wait quietly with the puppy or walk back and forth a little. As soon as the little dog does its business outside, it is extensively praised. This procedure should be repeated over and over again for the first time. Of course, a treat can also be used.

During this time, you can also teach your puppy a command that it combines with peeing. This can be, for example, “pee” or “business”. This trick can be extremely useful when the adult dog has to move quickly.

House-trained – Even at Night

It is best to always stick to the same procedure in the evening so that the puppy can orient itself to set rituals. For example, there is dinner at 6:30 p.m., the last time we go out at 11 p.m. and then we sleep.

If possible, the puppy should sleep in a large box with a blanket or basket or a lockable dog crate. Make sure that the edge is high enough so that the puppy cannot climb out.

It is best for your four-legged friend to sleep in your immediate vicinity. This is how you hear when he has to go out at night. The little dog will instinctively try not to pollute its night camp. He will make himself noticeable by whining and scratching and will try to get out of his crib.

Once the puppy has reported, speed is the order of the day. It won’t last long. So put everything that you need for the nightly pee round by the bed within easy reach. If the puppy makes it to the regular place, he will be praised again enthusiastically.

The Puppy in the Bedroom

Many people don’t like the idea of their dog sleeping in the bedroom. Locking a puppy alone in another room doesn’t make sense, however. The puppy will not feel comfortable there and your dog may get scared. In addition, the person does not notice when the puppy reports and signals that he has to get out. He must therefore on no account be scolded if a mishap happens during the night.

In general, lonely nights are counterproductive in order to get the dog house-trained.

House Training: When an Accident Happens

If a little mishap does happen, it doesn’t make any sense to punish the puppy. He doesn’t do this out of spite or to annoy you. Methods such as pushing the dog into his shop should not be used under any circumstances. If the puppy is punished for the mishap, you can only achieve that the next time it looks for a secret place so that it can avoid the reprimand. Your puppy will not learn anything.

If you catch your puppy “in the act”, a resounding “no” will follow without frightening the puppy. Then bring your four-legged friend outside quickly. If he breaks up again or if he ends his business, he is highly praised.

The leftovers in the house are best removed with a mixture of water and vinegar or a strongly-scented cleaner. Traces of scent should not be left behind, as these could tempt the puppy to loosen up on the spot again.
