Potty Training for Puppy? The Sooner the Better! [5 Easy& Effective Tips to Succeed Good Habits 2022]


It is in everyone’s best interest to start housebreaking your puppy as soon as possible. You need to get into the habit of doing excellent things from the very beginning. A dog that has never relieved itself inside the home will never think of the home as a place where it is appropriate to do so. The puppies that we got from real working farms, as opposed to puppy farms, have always been the ones that have been the least difficult to house-train. They had only ever gone to the bathroom inside the barn or outside, so the only place they desired to relieve themselves was on grass or hay. They regularly refused to even urinate in a parking lot, so we had to look for grassy locations on the way back to the house so that they could urinate. The following are some suggestions for house training that will prove useful, provided that they are followed in a regular manner:

5 Tips To Train Puppy In Establishing Good Habits

Closely Supervise Your Pup While Potty Training

When your dog is free to roam about the house, you should never let your puppy out of your sight. Keep an eye on him as if you were babysitting an extremely small child who, if you weren’t watching them, could or would go into trouble. In this regard, a puppy is the same as an infant or a toddler. When you can’t keep a close eye on your new puppy, put him in his crate to prevent him from getting into mischief.

If you see that your puppy is beginning to investigate his surroundings, you should immediately take him outside (or to the location that you have designated as the dog’s potty). If you would want the toilet area to be outside, you should try to make the area outside from the beginning; however, if you are unable to make the area outside from the beginning for whatever reason, you should at least make the area near the entrance. In this way, when you are ready to house train your puppy to go outside, you will be able to carry him outside if you see him beginning to sniff around near the door. This will make the transition to outside house training much easier. Crate your untrained dog whenever you can’t watch over him so that he doesn’t get into trouble. Make sure that you also have a crate of the appropriate size. Your new puppy should be able to stand up on its own and turn around, but it shouldn’t be any larger than that. If you bring your new puppy along with you to the pet store when you want to buy a crate, the employees there should be able to assist you in choosing the right size. Even though you might have your dog’s leash attached around your waist while you’re housebreaking them, you still need to pay attention to what they’re doing. (I once explained to my daughter that the reason why she was having trouble housebreaking our new puppy was because she wasn’t paying enough attention to the process. She called me one day to tell me that I must be correct because her puppy had two accidents that day (both on her foot!) I was relieved to hear that I had been correct.

Stop Your Puppy Going Potty In The Wrong Place

If you discover that your puppy is defecating in an inappropriate location, you should interrupt him by shouting “NO!” in a stern tone of voice, and then you should rush him to the correct location to finish. (If you don’t manage to get him, it’s because you aren’t paying close enough attention.) It might be helpful to put the paper towel that you use to wipe the mess at the spot where you want him to potty so that he will become accustomed to the smell of that area. Be careful to completely clean and deodorize the area in the house where he used the bathroom while you’re there. If you don’t use goods that are specifically designed for this, he will go there again. When he starts sniffing about certain areas, you should pay additional attention to him and/or lead him to the area where he is supposed to go potty.

Pick A Potty Place That Is Free Of Distractions

No form of play is allowed until the puppy has finished potty training. DO NOT transform the time spent potty training into play time until after he has completed the training. After he finishes going to the bathroom, reward him with a treat and then continue to play with him. Immediately and generously reward him for his hard work!

Set A Schedule

Maintaining a regular schedule will be of great assistance in the formation of healthy habits. You should schedule your puppy’s meals and water breaks. When you initially bring your new puppy home, you should feed him three times a day (or as your breeder recommends). As he becomes older, you can reduce the frequency of these feedings to once or twice each day. Make sure that he has access to clean water at all times. You should take your puppy to the area designated for toilet training approximately once per hour, and you should always take him there within ten minutes of him eating or drinking, waking up, or engaging in physical activity such as play or exercise. Allow him neither to play nor be distracted in any way until he has finished “doing his business.” As soon as he has relieved himself, you should begin to take him outside approximately once per hour when he is a very young puppy. As your puppy gets bigger and more firmly adopts appropriate house training habits, you should prolong the amount of time between ‘potty breaks’. Be sure to keep a close eye on your canine companion at all times, even when he is not in his crate or in a designated “potty place”

Reward Your Puppy As Soon As He Does Go Potty In The Appropriate Location

Give him a sample of a highly delectable food that is set apart from the others. Say to him, “Yes, you are a good guy!” And have some fun with him! Make it so that the fun and excellent stuff only starts after he has finished using the restroom. Dogs have a strong desire for tasty treats, and they are willing to go to almost any lengths to acquire them. The only thing that is truly necessary on your part is to make sure that your dog is aware of what it is that you require of him in order to obtain the “good stuff.”

In the beginning, before the habits are established, this requires a significant amount of effort. However, in all honesty, this is the method that yields the best results, and in many cases, it is the only option available. Make it a point to take your puppy outside as much as possible to maximize the number of times he has the chance to eliminate there. If he doesn’t go outside, you must keep a close check on him the entire time you’re bringing him inside. Most importantly, when he does go outside, lavish him with praise, reward him with treats, and play with him. You will both achieve your goals if you are patient, do not give up, remain consistent, and reward yourselves lavishly.
