Our family is experiencing potty training a new puppy once again and we’ve gone right back to what we learned with our litter mates. We take them outside after eating, sleeping, and play. Basically, once every hour. We were able to train our litter mates to go to the door to signal when they needed to “go potty.”
Potty Training a New Puppy
There is three times that your dog will definitely need to go potty. When they have had food, rest or sleep, play or exercise.
Take your dog outside on a leash and give your dog 10 minutes to go potty. If your dog didn’t go potty he/she doesn’t get any freedom when back inside the home tether your dog to you so the dog can’t sneak off to go potty. If 10 to 15 minutes have pasted take your dog back outside to go potty if the dog did potty say good and give the dog a yummy treat and now the dog can have freedom in the house.
Remember when outside if your dog doesn’t empty their balder all the way or a short pee no freedom until you see that your dog has emptied there balder. You have to see your dog going potty or they haven’t gone.
