Puppies under six months of age are not fully developed and will have trouble being able to hold their urine and feces. However, if you learn to know when they are likely to potty, you can anticipate their needs and get them out to a potty place at the right time.
Does your dog always use the same area in the yard for his pottying needs?
If not, you may need to start over on training him where to potty. Put his leash on him when you take him out and always take him to the same area. Always use a word such as "business" to let him know what you want him to do. Stand still and hold the end of the leash so he cannot investigate the entire area but is limited to a specific part. And do not let him play until he has pottied.
Basics of Potty Training:
It is important for your dog to have an established routine and for you to be consistent in your expectations of him. The easy way to look at the routine you need to establish is that any time there is a break during the day or a change of direction in your dog’s day, take the dog to his potty place.
The five keys to your success are:
- When your dog gets up, take him to the potty place.
- Feed your dog on a regular schedule which will eventually be twice a day, about 10-12 hours apart. After he eats or drinks anything, take him to the potty place.
- After your dog plays or exercises, take him to the potty place.
- Withhold water for two to four hours before your dog goes to bed.
- Just prior to going to bed, take him to the potty place
Depending on the age and background of your dog, you may need one of the variations suggested in the training course.
You may also want to understand the various methods of potty training and when to use which method. One method may fit your dog and your lifestyle better than the others.
