How to Train Your Dog to Go Potty Outside

February 28, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 219

Figuring out how to train your dog to go potty outside is something that an owner should take the time to do in order to ensure that their pet is disciplined and that chances of any unwanted "accidents" occurring inside the house are limited or completely eliminated.

The first thing that you will need to do is to establish a routine for your dog. This means that your dog will have their own schedule. It will take some getting used to so do not expect them to go potty at a scheduled time within days of introducing them to it. The younger your dog, the more number of times you will have to take them outside to do their "business". Two hours between trips outdoors should be more than enough so as to make sure they do not poop or pee indoors.

One of the keys to learning how to train your doggy to go potty outside is their feeding time. Remember, your dog needs to be on a schedule and that includes their meal times because being able to establish regular times for them to eat will mean that their potty times will be regularized as well. Why? Dogs often go potty soon after they eat so routine meal times equals routine potty times. Pups tend to eat more often than adult dogs, meaning they go potty more often as well, so be prepared for more outdoor trips with them.

Who doesn't like being rewarded for good behavior? A treat for every successful potty trip outside will help encourage your doggy to keep repeating it, recognizing that this particular behavior is what they are being rewarded for. One treat is more than enough so make sure that you do not overdo it. You want to reward your dog, not spoil them by stuffing them with treats. Be consistent with this and soon enough, they will continue going potty outside even without you handing them treats every single time but a word of praise will work just as well.

If you will not be around the house for an extended period of time during the day, you may want to ask someone to take your doggy out for both walks and potty needs. Placing your pet in a crate or cage for hours will work will lead you to coming home to "little presents" being left for you to have to pick up and mop up. Do not expect your dog to "hold it" while you are at work, especially if they happen to be a puppy.
