Potty Training outdoors

Potty Training is a term training a dog to potty train a puppy outside the house or a place that has been provided, in other words, no pee/poop carelessly in the house. Housebreaking is the first thing your puppy should teach. In general, puppy has not been able to control the bladder and gut until the age of 12 weeks. If your puppy’s age is younger than that, then it takes extra patience to teach it. Here are the steps that need to be done: Arrange the schedule when starting housebreaking for a puppy. Try to wake up every morning at the same time, take the puppy out of the house. Feed the puppy at the same time for a few days and immediately take it out as soon as the puppy has finished eating. Watch your puppy for signs like sniffing, spinning and pacing. Usually, this means it’s time to go pee/poop and if you see the signs, immediately take them out.

Never punish your puppy with a hit or other because this will only motivate your dog to fear you. If you find puppy poop inside the house, but do not see when the puppy does it, do not punish it because the puppy will not be able to attribute the punishment to the action that it has done and that only confuses it. Choose a word for the action, such as “Outside” or “Dispose of outside”, use this word/phrase consistently so puppy will learn the word as a command. Always take it to the same place outside when you want to pee/poop. The smell of the place will push him to pee/poop in that spot again and if he does, praise him. When you are not at home, the puppy should be put into a cage. You should buy a bigger cage for the place where puppy grows but place a divider inside until it is enough for the puppy to turn and lie down. Instinctively, the puppy will not want to contaminate its own place. Be careful not to let the puppy inside the cage for more than 4-6 hours, or he may have no choice but to pee/poop in his own place.
