It is best to begin to housebreak a dog as soon as you bring them home. It doesn’t matter if it’s a brand new puppy or an older dog, they will need to get used to your new surroundings. Here are 3 quick tips that can help.
1: Get your dog used to a certain routine when it comes to feeding and using the toilet. Take your dog outside after each meal, and in the morning and just before bedtime. Also remember to not give your dog water right before bedtime.
2: Do not leave your puppy unsupervised in the house. Keep an eye on them. Try to keep them in a confined area where you can play and interact them. If they start circling and sniffing around the house take them out immediately. This will prevent accidents in your home.
3: Always praise your dog when they go to the toilet in the right place. Also remember to be patient, accidents are going to happen, and punishing bad behavior disrupts the training process.
These are a few starter tips on housebreaking that will make the training process much easier.
