Getting a new puppy can be a very exciting time but that first while is not all fun and games. Learning how to potty train a puppy is important and best done early. There have been many books, videos and consultants charging a fortune in order to teach people how to potty train a puppy and how to housebreak a puppy. The truth is you don’t need to spend a fortune on all of this stuff – you just need to learn how to train your new dog properly.

There are several schools of thought when it comes to potty training a puppy but the basic ideas comes down to patience and consistency. All you need is the ability to portray a happy or sad tone within your voice. Dogs can respond to a deeper tone of voice but that doesn’t rule anyone out from being able to train a new puppy.

A basic training technique of potty training a puppy involves taking the puppy outdoors for a few moments every hour (keep in mind puppies have small bladders). Designate a term for the puppy doing a ‘number one’ and ‘number two’ and when you notice the puppy doing either repeat the word and ensure to keep it consistant.

For example, if you take your puppy outside and he begins to urinate, continue to repeat ‘Pee’. It might look strange to onlookers but a dog peeing indoors looks worse and I know which one involves less cleaning. When your puppy is finished immediately make sure they are praised. Provide a treat, cuddle and play with him before going back inside.

Continue this on a regular schedule and if you catch your puppy mid task inside clap your hands loudly and say ‘stop’ or ‘Ah!’ again keep it consistent and move the puppy outdoors. Always praise – never punish. It’s a lot easier for the puppy to understand praise than punishment. The negative tone should be enough for the puppy to learn what is expected of it.

When you being learning how to potty train a puppy there’s a few things you should keep in mind –

Solid (dried) foods are a good idea for a puppy during the potty training period. Solid stools are a lot easier to clean if done indoors. On the same token you should keep the puppy in rooms with hard, easy to clean floors.

Learning how to potty train a puppy is a little too large for one post and we have many great articles on the subject but hopefully you’ve got a basic idea to start with if nothing else.
