One of the biggest concerns for new puppy owners is training it go outside to “do its business”. It is better to condition your puppy to a specific routine when it comes to potty training to ensure that it adapts itself as it grows. Here are a few tips for potty training your pup-
• For the first month or so, you will have to physically carry your puppy outside to eliminate its waste. This will condition the puppy to know that it has to go outside to take care of business.
• Make sure to use positive reinforcement every time your puppy does its business in the right spot. Give it plenty of belly scratches, treats, and play with it. Remember to verbally praise it by saying “good girl/boy”. If the puppy misbehaves during potty time, do not do any of these. This will reinforce the idea that going to the bathroom in the right space is right.
• If your puppy eliminates inside the home, do not scold it for the mistakes or get mad. This will leave an intense psychological scar on your puppy regarding going to the bathroom. If it does happens frequently then it means that you are not taking it out frequently enough.
These are the few tips you can implement to train your dog to go potty outside. This little effort on your part in the beginning will pay off in the long run. It is important that you have your puppy trained by professionals, which will assure good behaviour. Visit our website to find out more about our professional dog training services at
