Puppy Toilet Training Tips - Best Way to Potty Train a PuppyTake Them Outside OFTEN (and then a few more times!)

When a baby needs to go, they go!  The same is true with puppies.  When a puppy needs to pee, they pee! It’s up to YOU to get them outside often enough so that they can relieve themselves before they pee inside.  At a very young age, eight weeks or so, a puppy’s bladder is very small and they can only hold on for sometimes 30 minutes or so before they may need to go again. So you must be vigilant.  After a meal, puppies will often need to go within 60 seconds (yes, you read that right) so always take them straight outside after they eat. You should also take them outside as soon as they wake up, as their bowels will start to move as soon as they begin walking around.  And of course, take them outside last thing at night.

Show Your Puppy Where to Pee

The best way to show your puppy where you want them to toilet is to show them the correct place. The best way to do this is to take them out often, then praise them when they go where you want them to. You will be amazed how quickly they will learn if you give them an amazing treat for going in the right place. Think of it like this: if the treat is a little piece of cheese, your puppy will figure out very quickly that whenever he pees in the grass, he gets CHEESE!

Choose a word or phrase that everyone in the house sticks to such as, “go potty” or “go pee-pee” so the puppy can begin to learn what it means.  If your puppy does not go, then be aware that they may still need to relieve themselves soon and restrict their movement to a smaller area that is easy to clean until they are taken outside and definitely toilet.

What NOT To Do

You should never rub a puppy’s nose in it to teach them a lesson. A puppy’s nose is 1000 times more sensitive than a human’s and this will never teach them not to do it again. They will simply not know what they did wrong and do it out of sight the next time, such as behind the couch!  This can also result in your puppy eating poop his whole life.  Please just don’t do it.
