When to Start House Training a Puppy

When you know that you are going to be getting a new puppy, one of the first questions you may want to ask is “when should I start house training”. The answer is to start immediately, right from the time you bring him or her home for the first time. Puppy’s, especially young puppy’s, cannot hold the urge to go potty so they will need to be watched at all times and taken out every half hour or so. Your goal here is to help them realize that outside is the place to go to the bathroom and when your puppy gets older and learns to hold it; he will know to go outside.

When you first start house training a puppy, it is very important that you praise your puppy when he goes potty outside. You may need to use a treat or two, but basically you want to show that you are happy with what he is doing. Puppy’s love to be praised and all it takes is an enthusiastic “good boy” to make his day.

When house training a puppy, you should always remember that your new puppy may not make it outside all the time and this should be expected because it is all part of raising your puppy.

When your puppy does not make it outside and you catch him going to the bathroom on your rug or, gasp, your furniture, you should remember not to make it hard on him. You don’t want your new puppy to be afraid of you, so just use the words “no” very firmly and remember to watch him better next time.

House training a puppy takes a lot of patience and persistence. Every day you will have to get up early and take your new puppy outside to the bathroom and keep a constant eye on him at all times. Your puppy may mess up every once in a while, but as long as you keep trying, you will succeed.

This article barely scratches the surface of what is required when you start house training a puppy. To discover more methods and techniques you can use to successfully house train your puppy, I highly recommend you visit http://puppy-house-training.info today!
