House breaking is crucial, and it essentially involves training your new puppy for two things – going potty and staying in one place. Needless to say, it also teaches the owner the virtue of patience and a thing or two of what it might be like to raise children. House breaking is a long process and something one must consider before adopting a dog. It requires the owner to put in real effort for as long a period of time as it takes for the dog to learn. A few rules for house breaking to get you acquainted.

1. Prepare the house for the house breaking. Understand that your house will now be used by someone very different from you and as much as the dog will learn to adjust, so should your house. Make your home a safe environment for your pup by getting rid of objects that the pup might swallow or break. Similarly, seal or fasten entrances to rooms and closets you don’t want the puppy going in to.

Make a special place just for the puppy, that can serve as his ‘den’

2. Start house breaking on the first day and maintain everyday, even after the puppy has learned the ropes. Starting early and being consistent helps reinforce commands and also minimizes confusion.

3. Involve the entire family. Your whole family needs to understand the importance of house breaking and co-operate during all the stages, especially when the puppy is new in the house.

Any kind of training – potty, crate or obedience will succeed only when all of these rules are followed. These rules establish clear lines of communication between you and your pup that will form a strong foundation for any training.

Dr. Edwards teaches you how to use the Crate Training Method for getting the quickest results with house training your puppy or dog.

Critical Rules For House Breaking a Puppy

Contrary to what you might think, house training your puppy isn’t always about training them to go in the same place every time. Of course, this is part of it, but the lesser known part of the training is teaching your puppy to stay in the same spot for a period of time. House training, while it may seem like a long process, actually can be quite quick if a few ground rules are followed.

Before you head down that path, you must first get the house ready for training. You should know that your puppy will not be used to not being able to use your house as a potty, and they will have accidents. You should set up a safe environment for them so they feel comfortable, yet, be prepared for accidents. More importantly, be sure to set aside a special place for your dog so they can have somewhere to go when they need a break. It should be their “special place”.

Without this, your chances of an accident greatly increase.

No matter how young your puppy is, you should start housebreaking today. There is no reason why you can’t start reinforcing the fact that there is a place for the puppy to go and a place for it not to go. Maintain this consistency and you’ll find that your training will come along much faster than it would if you didn’t start this early. Don’t expect miracles if they are young, however, it takes time for the bladder muscles to mature.

Dog Training – House Breaking Your Puppy

Getting a new puppy can be a very rewarding experience for both you and your family. The excitement of a new puppy can easily be doused when small puddles and “chocolate bars” appear around your house. This is why house breaking your puppy is a top priority after your dog is properly acclimated to its new home.

When starting potty training it is important to remember that your new puppy doesn’t know any better, he can’t distinguish between the right and the wrong place to use the bathroom. Before your dog matures he has little to no control over his bladder and will go when he needs to. Before you being to train make sure you have a dog cage or a dog pen of the appropriate size set up. Dogs naturally don’t like to soil their “den” so by keeping them in their dog cage it helps promote holding their bladder. One final thing to keep in mind before starting to train is that rewarding your puppy for the things he does right makes a bigger impact than punishing him for the things he does wrong.

Now you are ready to start training, the first thing you want to do is designate a single spot or area for your dog to use the bathroom.

This will be the place where you take him every time he has to go. The more specific the better, it will make it easier on you in the long run because you’ll know where he goes making clean up easier. Make sure you don’t give you puppy the run of the house, letting him off a leash or out of his dog cage will lead to destroyed furniture and messes all over your house.

Every hour or so take your puppy out to his spot and pick a phrase to say when he goes to the bathroom. I like to say, “Go Potty!” in an encouraging tone. After he, “Goes Potty” be sure to reward him immediately with a treat and praise.

It must be directly after he finishes or else he might not remember what he did right. A few times a day after a successful potty break be sure to play with him, let him run around supervised of course and have fun. He will associate going potty with playing and it will encourage him to go in the proper place. If you have waited 5 minutes or so and your puppy doesn’t have to go then take him back inside and come back in 15-25 minutes. Make sure you take him out every hour and return him to his dog cage after each break.

Night breaks, though annoying are essential to potty training your puppy. Because he isn’t mature, his bladder can’t take long periods of time without relief. Make sure you take him out at least twice a night and then put him right back in his dog cage. Your puppy will let you know when he has to go by barking until you come. If he doesn’t try setting an alarm twice a night. To prevent any extra accidents during the night be sure to take the water dish out of his dog cage and replace it first thing in the morning.

Avoid feeding your puppy right before bed, dinner should be given an hour to and hour and a half before allowing for ample time for him to digest and get settled. After feeding take your puppy out with in 10-20 minutes, eating often endues bathroom breaks in puppies and older dogs as well. Finally be sure to take your puppy out first thing in the morning, directly following naps and right before bed.

By following this routine your dog should be fully potty trained in no time. It is difficult at first but with hard work and dedication on your part it will make the entire process easier. Making sure you have an appropriate area for your dog to stay, like a dog cage or dog pen, this den will make the process easier and make your dog feel more at home.

Crate Training Puppies – House Breaking

The real reason that most people start crate training puppies is to make house breaking a puppy so much easier, right? While there are plenty of other reasons, I agree that this reason is an amazing advantage. I want to go over the proper steps to take in order to be successful in your house breaking efforts.

I start every lesson the same way… A reminder.

Positive Reinforcement

The reason crate training puppies works so well is simply because it takes advantage of a natural reluctance in the dog to eliminate in it’s sleeping area. This reluctance allows for their potty schedule to be very planned out and predictable. Your puppy seems to need to go potty every X minutes. By crating the puppy about an hour before X minutes is reached, then taking the puppy outside immediately 15 minutes prior to X being reached, we have a very well thought out plan of how we’re going to make this potty training work.

Crate training puppies isn’t the be all and end all, though.

House breaking a puppy is still a lot of work as puppies need to eliminate very frequently.

Another thing to keep in mind when trying to schedule potty times is that puppies will often times need to eliminate very shortly after eating, playing, or sleeping.

Should an accident happen when crate training puppies, make sure you clean the mess very thoroughly with an ammonia free cleaner. Ammonia has a smell related to urine and may encourage repeated elimination in that area. Don’t scold your puppy for this. It will only work against you.
