How to Potty Train Your Puppy
Before we begin it is important to note that one of the biggest challenges puppy owners face is how to potty train their puppy. Potty training your puppy is not rocket science. But, if it is not rocket science, why do so many puppy owners fail to housebreak their puppy?
Rule #1: Potty Training Your Puppy takes time
A lot of puppy owners expect potty training results way too soon! This often brings on frustration. Although, there’s a general timeline on how old before a dog is fully potty trained, at the end of the day – it is really up to the canine. Work the system & let the rest take place!
Rule #2: Restrict Your Puppy’s Freedom
The next largest reason puppy owners fail in the potty training department is they are unwilling to restrict their puppy’s freedom. Sounds weird, doesn’t it? Yet, we do it with babies all of the time. We have no choice, we need to keep them safe.
Young puppies should also be kept safe from getting to electrical wires, pulling lamps down, finding their into detergents, etc….. Yes, puppy proofing your home will help, but as many seasoned puppy owners know, these little gals and guys can get themselves into anything.
