House Training Dog

When you first bring your puppy home, it would be best to put it into a box with newspaper on the ground around the outside of the box. Make sure that the puppy can jump over the sides of the box so it can go to the toilet when it needs.

Make the pup a bed in the box with some old clean rags or blankets. Try to put a small amount of rags in the box for the pup's bed, because if the pup does WET, then you wont have much to clean up.

The pup will be comforted by a something of yours next to itself in the box. Maybe you may like to use an old sock or ripped shirt, which has your personal smell on it. Some people like to wrap a ticking clock in the cloth to symbolise a heartbeat, better still, if you were to take a toy with you when you buy the pup, get all the pups and the mum to play with the toy. This will obtain the smell of the litter and the mum. These methods may help the pup and you to sleep better.
It can also help to create an early bonding between you and your animal.

Continue this for the first few days.
Then you can place the dog into its permanent sleeping area.

When the pup wakes in the morning pick it up and take it outdoors where you want the dog go to the toilet. Pick a spot that is accessible for the pup to get to and easy for you to clean. Once you place the pup on the area, you can assist the dog in starting urination by rubbing its genitals. The mother usually does this by licking the pup in the genitals, then it urinates. This stimulant brings on the response of urination as soon as the pup does its business "PRAISE IMMEDIATELY". Then you can take the pup back to its place of boarding. If you were to wait a while the pup should urinate on its own and besides rubbing this area is usually only for very young pups (0-5 weeks).
If the pup urinates as you pick it up or upon a greeting then the pup has weak nerves (temperament). This can be overcome by creating confidence in your dog and not doing anything when this happens. If you reassure the dog then you are probably rewarding this behaviour. Aremote dog training collaris a must have tool for you.

You may like to carry the dog to the spot if it is a fair distance down the garden, then gradually after a few days encourage the pup to the site from a short distance from the site. Increase the distance only when the pup learns it has positioned itself correctly. If it "goes" in the wrong spot, pick it up and show it the correct spot by placing the dog gently down where your would like it to go. Do not be hard on the young dog and don't forget to praise even when the dog gets it right quite a few times. Important: Do Not rub the dogs nose in its mess if it makes a mistake, just clean up the mess, this is your fault not the dogs fault. In doing the above exercise you can restrict the dog's manure to a specified area, which is easier to clean up. Remember that all sorts of training takes time and if you persist, you will get the results you are looking for. Puppies usually go to the toilet after they wake, after meals and before they sleep. So if you try to work to a routine to take the pup outside at these times it will make easier learning for the pup. If the pup does not go when you take it out, do not get disheartened with the pup, leave the pup for a while and only play with the dog when it has done what it has to do. The dog likes to smell where it has done its duty so it can go there again. The pup will still be able to smell the spot even when you have removed the manure. If you have not got the time to be with your animal at all times and your pet is a house pet then do the same method of training in a designated area where you would like it to do its business in your house. A small dog may have a litter tray like a cat or just newspaper is sufficient.
If you catch the pup in the act at doing its business in an area other than the space set out, quickly pick up the dog with moderate force and give the verbal correction command you have chosen (see commands section). Then take the pup to the correct area and only praise when the pup finishes its business. electronic dog training collar
ONLY do this if you catch the dog in the act... REMEMBER - DO NOT BE CRUEL OR TOO HARD ON THE PUP, THIS IS NOT ONLY UNNECESSARY BUT IT CAUSES COMPLICATIONS IN LATER TRAINING.

Show the dog where you put the mess, slowly and gently pat the pup when it sniffs around (do not verbally praise at this moment unless the dog does more of its business). Never be too hard on the pup in the corrections, remember its size and fragility. This house training method will not take long to show a response, just remember the praise must always out weigh the punishment command for this to work and that all training will work if the proper methods are used and allow time for the results to happen.
