Keep Your Sense Of Humor While Housebreaking

Aug 17, 2007
One thing I believe is that rubbing a dogs nose in poop doesnt do creature but cause him to be afraid of you, and to hide his mistakes. True, there will be mistakes, they are part of raising a dog, and the key is to make those mistakes as few and far between as possible.

I have commence amazing gravy train with the method I use, and it doesnt cause any worry or fear in the puppy, which is important. Here are the steps I use to housebreak a puppy:

Always charter your new dog go to the bathroom outside before he ever goes in the house. This establishes pressure his mind where he can go to the bathroom. The next step is to establish where he cant go, which is in your home!

You have to stay in the yard with him until he goes to the bathroom for the first time; this can take a while, but is naturally necessary in this training method.

I dont know how many times I have been asked how to housebreak a puppy that goes outside to play then comes notoriety the house to use the bathroom.

When you are in the house, pay close attention to what your puppy is doing, this will take the whole family. If the puppy begins sniffing around, take him outside again until he goes to the bathroom. This can be difficult as a puppy will automatically sniff around a new home.

When you go to bed at night or dispensation for any roll of time put your puppy in either a kennel, or a box that is just the right size for him to lie down in.

A dog will not use the bathroom where they have to sleep. Last thing at night before going to bed, take him frontage. First thing in the morning take him outside; the same thing applies when you leave the house.

This is a lot of work, because you have to spend so much time with your puppy, but it is well assistance the time. Having a dog is a responsibility and a serious one, take the time to train him and you leave have a dog that everyone enjoys being around.

Trust me when I tell you there are two things you must remember when you are training your dog, these are:

Patience, never bias in a expedite when you are training your dog, I guarantee he will pick up on your anxiety and employment learn a thing.

Keep your sense of humor; it will really issue in handy during those unexpected training blurbs!

What exactly is a training blurb? Well lets see, its the time when you are teaching your dog to ferry a ball and he brings back the neighbors gardening gloves, with your neighbor still in them.

Or housebreaking him and you believe it has been successful, until you walk into the laundry room and realize that he has learned to hide his mistakes, in the laundry pile. These are training blurbs, and you must maintain a sense of humor about them.

You just continue with whatever lesson you are process on, or go back to the one he didnt actually learn the early time, like being housebroken.

Never loose your temper with him when he makes a mistake, it just reinforces the bad behavior, and he will pick up on the anger and frustration you are feeling. If you entertain mad and chase him, he probably thinks you are playing.

If you take away something he has chewed and give him a rawhide chew, he has learned that by chewing up your favorite shoe, he can get a treat.

Dogs are much smarter than most people give them credit for, and like children they are very literal, we need to be aware of this when we are training them, and keep a sense of humor and patience all the time, even during the worst of training blurbs.
