House Breaking a Dog
Train your dog as soon as possible to take care of his business outside. If you have a garden, you could start out there as this is a place where you can pick up his feces and then pour water over that area. Continue the training by having him do his needs in an appropriate public area. Always pick up the dog's feces by using a plastic bag. And leash your dog so that you pick the specific place for him to do his needs. To help your dog learn how to take care of his business outside follow these tips:
- If you notice that your dog is standing at the front door, it's often an indicator that he wants to do his needs outside.
- Train your dog to choose a specific place for urination. Your dog will always go back to that same spot afterwards.
- Since learn by associating things, help your dog by using a command such as "go", or "hurry up" while he is urinating; after doing this make sure to praise him. You will see that pretty soon your dog will learn to take care of his business whenever he hears your command.
