Housetraining Your Pomeranian Dog Breed

Jul 3, 2008
Housebreaking a Pomeranian is not easy and some owners even admit that in extreme cases some owners have given up. But always remember that housebreaking a Pomeranian is not a simple task and it can even take months to get it right. In some cases owners will give up and use Pomeranian litter box training in what they consider to be only a temporary measure in their housebreaking. Be warned that as much as you may think it is temporary your Pomeranian may not look at it that way.

Before you even consider Pomeranian litter box training you may first want to keep giving traditional housebreaking methods one more try. Sometimes the toy breeds will hide under couches or get into areas you may not look and that may be causing housebreaking issues. Make sure you try absolutely everything before resorting to Pomeranian litter box training as your housebreaking method.

If you are completely convinced that Pomeranian litter box training is what you need to do then get a litter box and then place it in the place where the dog has been soiling the most. Fill the litter box with shredded newspaper or some other organic fill. Do not use regular litter because they may eat it and get sick. Be prepared to clean the litter box regularly and still take the dog outside from time to time to continue the housebreaking training.

You can get your dog on a set feeding schedule so that you know when it will be needing to use the litter box, or you can just take it to the litter box every 45 minutes or so, to let your dog know that it is to use the litter box after eating. If there are accidents then clean them up and do not punish the dog. The dog will only respond to positive reinforcement so praise and reward it when it uses the litter box and avoid punishment at all times.

As your dog shows signs of getting used to Pomeranian litter box training then you can slowly start to move the box towards the door you want it to use to go outside. Once you get the litter box to the door start taking the dog outside and eventually, hopefully, you can get rid of the litter box so that the dog knows that the door is now its way to the bathroom. Be patient as any housebreaking with a Pomeranian takes time.

Be warned that once you start Pomeranian litter box training you may be stuck with a dog that only uses a litter box. To many owners this is better than the alternative of a dog that wets the carpet and that is why many stick with it. If you do not mind the idea of a dog using the litter box full time then you should be fine but many dog owners do not like this concept and that is why Pomeranian litter box training can be a bad idea.
