Tips For Toilet Training Your Pet Dog
Toilet training your pet dog as early as possible
is always a better idea. It always feels good to
see your dog well trained and behaved however
this can only achieved with a fair amount of
persistence and patience. Although dogs are
supposed to be very clean animals their animal
instincts can drive them to relieve themselves
wherever they find it convenient.
This can be very frustrating for the dog owner
and we know how it feels like to your have your
floors and carpets soiled and messed when least
expected. With a fair amount of training your
dog can be perfectly potty trained. Mentioned
below are a few tips that will help you to toilet
train your pet dog and in all probability you
would no longer need that carpet cleaner.
Patience and Persistence It is important to take
note of the fact that the younger the puppy the
longer he may take to learn and get into the mode
of habits that is being taught to him/her.
Therefore it is important to be patient
and with a fair amount of persistence
your dog will gradually learn the rules and
form toilet habits when trained on a
daily basis. Remember, that every dog has his
own individual learning curve. So, spanking your
dog every time he makes a mistake is not going to
solve the problem.
Get the pet dog into a mode of habit Many animal
behaviorists believe that by getting the dog into
a habit mode is the key to perfectly toilet train
your pet dog. It is therefore recommended that
the dog owner takes the dog out every few hours
as well as 30 minutes after he eats his meal.
Choose a specific spot outside where you would
be taking him on an everyday basis. Also, praise
the pet now and then or when he obeys well. If
however, he refuses to go outside try again in
15 minutes. Gradually, he will understand that
going out is a sign of going to the bathroom.
Also, pay attention to the dogs body language.
If he/she starts to sniff or circle around it is
a sign that they need to relieve themselves.
Select a designated spot each time you notice
that your pet dog needs to relieve himself and
take him/her to that spot every time.
Learn how to react to accidents Like mentioned
above every dog has its own individual learning
curve. This learning curve is greatly affected by
the pet owners reaction to the accidents caused
by their pets. Each time the pet dog displays
symptoms of relieving himself call out his name
or clap in order to distract his attention.
Constant control on his activities will help you
determine his/her behavioral patterns as well.
Make sure that you dont vent out your anger or
frustration on the pet dog if he does cause an
accident. Carefully clean up the mess and ignore
the dog completely while doing so. If he/she does
try and approach the accident area make sure you
dont yell at the dog. Simply ignore the pet or
he may not be able to bond with you. The key is
to train the dog and not instill fear in him.
Confining the Pet Dog At times confining your pet
dog is the best approach towards their toilet
training. Large crates or cages are used to
confine the pet dog. A dog usually refrains from
reliving himself at the spot where he sleeps or
sits as they are essentially sanitary creatures.
So whenever, Mother Nature calls a dog would
instinctively move out of the cage or crate in
order to relieve himself. This gradually
would become a mode of habit for him.
However, it is important to ensure that the pet
owner gets large sized crates and cages to
confine the pet dog so that he/she has enough
room to move about. This helps in creating a
pattern that the dog will follow even after he is
no longer confined to a crate or cage.
Use of repetitive Commands The home owner would
need to use a certain set of words for the dog
repeatedly till the dog understands what exactly
it is a sign for. So for example if you take him
outside you could say go potty. Dogs have a
keen ear and a sharp learning curve. They would
gradually understand what exactly the owner is
signaling at. Use of these commands on a regular
basis is important so that your pet dog becomes
familiar with it and would gradually start to
follow them.
Keeping your pet dog happy It is important for
your pet dog to develop a bonding with the owner.
This only comes with love, affection and care.
Treat your dog to a feast once in a while and
praise him every time he obeys your command or
responds well to the training.
