Puppy potty training made easy is one of the biggest resources for a new puppy home. Here are some potty training tips to help you along.
You have the natural instincts of the puppy as well as their digestive tracts working in your favour. When puppies are born, they eat and go in the den. The mother will clean it up. By 4 weeks or so of age, they learn from mom that they need to go outside the den. By 2-3 months extending the den area is a very efficient method for housebreaking. The GI tract of puppies is very efficient and 5-30 minutes after the puppy eats, he will want to go. Be watchful and set a consistent eating schedule.
If the puppy has an accident in the house, there is no need for potty training frustration. The puppy has a small short-term memory. When you reprimand, the puppy has forgotten all about it. The best thing to do is to be vigilant and catch your puppy in the act, just calmly relocate the puppy to his designated going area. This will avert potty training failure.
Once the puppy is letting you know he wants to go out, it means that he is more or less potty trained.
