It is fairly simple to house train dogs of any age. Initially, the most important thing is the quick response. If your dog starts to pee indoors, take it outside immediately. Eventually, your dog will learn to wait.
Having a daily routine is important for dogs of any age but its initially important for younger dogs as their bladders are small. In addition to this, its also important to let your dog out first thing in the morning, during or after playtime, after he/she has eaten a meal or drank a lot of water.
Whether you take your dog for a walk or let them outside on their own in a fenced-in-enclosure, your dog needs to have a routine spot where he urinates.
Stay outside with the dog when you take it to go to the bathroom. When you stay outside you can make sure your dog relieves itself and doesn’t play or do something else. You can also praise it after going to the bathroom which can train the dog much better.
Use verbal commands with your dog’s chosen bathroom spot or with any spot. Use a single command for this behaviour and over a while your dog will recognize it and recall the associated act with urinating. Praise them when they urinate on their usual spot.
You can use hand gestures to teach your dog.You can also command using hands. Once the dog understands it and urinates, praise him and show them love and affection.
You can also use treats for your dogs.
Pick up your dog’s water dish about two and a half hours before bedtime to reduce the likelihood that they’ll need to relieve themselves during the night. Most dogs can sleep for approximately 7-8 hours without needing a bathroom break. If your puppy does wake up in the night, don’t make a big deal of it otherwise they will think it is time to play and won’t want to go back to sleep.
Training your dog is an easy job. But if your dog relieves himself in the house, do not scold them. They may get scared of you and will try to find places in the house where you won’t be able to find out.
