House Training & Potty Training
Your Puppy or Adult Dog
Quickly and Easily
Did you just find another puddle
in your house? Or did you walk into the living
room and discover a pile of poop? Do you feel
like you are spending all your time taking the
dog outside or cleaning up messes in the house?
You are not alone, but you do not
need to be in this situation. Your puppy or adult
dog can be fully potty trained and you can be free
of cleaning up "accidents" all the time.
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.

any health problems. Then try to understand when he

he is playing, right after he gets up (or is released
from his crate), when greeting people, etc. Once you
can identify when he has problems, you can use our

Does your dog only mess when you
leave him alone? Does he only do it in a certain room
of the house? Does he mark your furniture? Learn what
causes these behaviors and how to work with your puppy
or adult dog to solve the problem.
If you work and must leave your
dog at home for long hours, you need to learn
how to effectively crate train your dog as well
as how to successfully potty train him so that
he always eliminates in the appropriate place
at the appropriate times.
Potty training, like all other
types of dog training, involves positive reinforcement.
Learn how to deal with accidents appropriately
without hitting your dog or “making a big
deal” out of it.
Some breeds are easy to house train
as they don’t like for their living quarters
to be messy or smelly or they really like to please
their owners. Other breeds are more difficult to housebreak.
Others may take a special type of housebreaking. However,
with patience and persistence, your dog can be housetrained.
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
When your dog gets up, take him to the potty
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.
Crate Training is Not House Training
There are three basic methods of
housebreaking puppies or dogs - the basic direct method,
the paper method, and the litter box method. Each
method refers to where the dog potties.
Crate training is simply putting
your puppy or dog into a crate at times when you cannot
watch him every second during housetraining, you leave
home, you want him to sleep, you need him to be or
feel safe, you are traveling with him (even to the
vet), or you need more control over his behavior.
