Owning a pet brings many rewards. However, in addition to the rewards, there will be challenges. It is worth exploring ways to meet these challenges.
Trying out useful and very practical tips is much better than trying anything and everything at random, well-meaning people eagerly share.
Here are a few tips that have certainly produced positive results in the shortest possible time:
The use of newspapers, contrary to popular belief, will not miraculously guarantee that your puppy is instinctively trained. Let’s face it: Dogs are not cats, so “anywhere” is a potential toilet. So, if you’ve decided to use the newspaper as a designated toilet, make sure your puppy is placed near the “said” newspaper at about the same time as he regularly pees and poops. That way, your puppy will eventually associate the areas covered by the newspapers with your toilet, making his adventure a success.
Routines play a huge role in establishing good puppy training exercises at home. It is helpful to teach your child acceptable toilet practices through a set of routines. In the first few months, puppies are usually able to hold their pee for about an hour. So diligently placing your puppy near your “toilet” is a good way to introduce the idea of “it’s time to pee or poop”.
Rewards, both physical and vocal, are another way to make sure your puppy learns the puppy training rules he is trying to implement. Every time you compliment your puppy, he learns to make sure your hygiene habits are in line with the rules you set. It’s simply a matter of making your puppy understand that going to the right place makes everyone happy.
Feeding schedules, which are regulated, also help ensure that your puppy’s training efforts are worthwhile. You should note when your puppy needs to “go” and make sure the steps for “going” are followed. When rations are consistent in terms of timing, poop sessions will be consistent as well.
Take a good look, raise a puppy that is successfully trained at home. Keeping your puppy in sight and placing him immediately next to the toilet when he shows signs of wanting to poop is one of the best tactics to use. That way, you’ll certainly avoid unnecessary accidents and your puppy will eventually get the message.
When accidents do happen, and they certainly will, use a firm voice to stop your puppy in the act. Immediately transfer your puppy to your sanitation area and praise him when his “work” is done.
When it comes to training your puppy, patience is usually the most important ingredient you’ll need to arm yourself with. Sounds like a war, doesn’t it? In a way, it is. Patience, combined with smart tactical maneuvers, for training puppies at home is the first and most important mission to be launched. If you can’t “conquer” your puppy’s pee and poop habits from the start, then it will definitely be an all-out war.
