I’m not going to lie to you, sometimes it can be overwhelming, but here’s good news for you: achieving success depends on you, not on your dog. House training a Dog is a process that takes time, following a daily routine and, of course, a lot of patience.
Some dogs learn the house training process faster than others. For example, it is hard for some Toy Breeds to go through the process because of their stubbornness which cause them to resist to cooperate.
If for some reason house training is driving you crazy and you are getting frustrated, don’t worry much, I’m going to give the key to success. You’ll see it’s just a matter of time.
What is House Training?
House training a dog consists of several activities that you should teach your puppy right from day one, so he gets used to the rules of the game. You are going to need a plan and a schedule for each and every one of the following activities:
- Crate Training:
You might think that keeping your dog locked up is cruel (I agree with you), yet it will be necessary under certain circumstances throughout your pet’s life. When you learn those tips, you will find out that your dog will get to like being in his crate.
- Potty Training:
Training your puppy to go to the toilet area is definitely what takes more time and effort in the house training a dog. Recognizing that your puppy can’t control his “need” is the first thing you should understand in order to avoid those unpleasant episodes of stress and anxiety for both of you.
- Chewing Training:
Dogs need to chew something, it’s a canine thing. Using toys and other techniques that I will show you, you can teach your puppy what to chew and what not to chew. That way you will keep your shoes, furniture and other things (which may be at his reach) intact.
My Dog Training Advice To You
- The first step you should take when your puppy gets home is crate training because you can use it in the process of potty training and you can prevent your puppy from destroying everything within the house.
- Make a feeding and exercising schedule for your dog. Set down a daily routine which is the key for any dog to learn anything.
- Keep the daily routine 7 days a week until your puppy grows up.
- Keep and eye on him at all times to prevent or diminish possible accidents.
- If an accident occurs, do not punish or yell at him. Doing so can affect the chemisty of the relation, making the training process much more difficult. He might be reluctant to go to the toilet when you are around.
- Correct your puppy only when you catch him in the act. If some time has already passed, it won’t be of any use to correct him then, he won’t understand anyway.
- Love your dog with all your heart, but when the time comes to correct him, do it firmly, so he understands that what he did is not allowed within the house.
- Exercise your puppy everyday, so that his indoor life becomes a comfortable one for him; as a result, he will develop a positive attitude towards training.
- If you feed you dog with quality products, he might go to the toilet less frequently. Some people think this is only a myth, but I assure you it’s a fact.
- Restraint your puppy’s access to areas of the house that you understand might be dangerous for him. Installing dog gates at the entrance of every room works perfectly.
