Having a puppy is the best time of your life. They are great and you can look them growing. But with a lot of fun, there is a lot of responsibility. You will have to teach your puppy many things, so start now. In order to have smart and obedient house pet, you must teach your dog about house training.
The training of your puppy starts with an 8 foot leash. Your puppy must be within your line of vision and it shouldn’t be in the gated area or crate. Then, you must look for the signs that he must go outside. The signs are: a beseeching look, pacing, trying to pace, tugging on the leash and becoming distracted. This means that your dog must go outside. Also, you should keep him close to you, so you can grab it if he starts having an accident. In that case, explain to him that this isn’t ok.
When you are away from home or your dog is sleeping, use a crate. Dogs like having their crates clean and they don’t want to soil in the crate. The crate shouldn’t be very big. If it is, a puppy can find a space and eliminate it. Luckily, you can find many crates that come with space dividers, so you can increase the space as your puppy is growing.
In order to make the crate system more efficient, you should let your dog out of it after a few hours. When he is old enough, he can wait you, until you get home. You can also allow your dog to eliminate indoor if you cannot let him out of the crate after a few hours. In this case, use a newspaper.
