Training Tips & Treats For Puppy

Puppy House Training

PuppyBuzz.com Puppy Training TipsWhen you first bring home your new puppy, you’ll quickly realize what little scamps they can be! Always investigating and getting into things. Some like to chew on your favorite pair of shoes, others like to jump up on everything (including you!), and many puppies just can’t stop peeing everywhere.

It’s very important to begin house training your puppy immediately – start the very first day you bring your buddy home. Bad habits can develop quickly and are harder to break over time. By being gentle and consistent, you can help your pup to grow and develop into a lovely friend. Here are some helpful pointers and tips:

Puppy House Training Tips

  • Watch your puppy constantly. By preventing no-nos “before” they happen – you’ll be one step ahead of the game.
  • Remember your puppy isn’t very fluent in english. It will take him a bit to figure out what ‘No’ means. Be consistent and use the same phrases over and over, he’ll soon learn what ‘Potty’ and ‘Outside’ mean.
  • Consider crate training your pup right from the start. Especially if you work outside the home and puppy will be alone for several hours a day. This will help prevent house damage as well as prevent puppy from being hurt (chewing electrical cords, getting into garbage, etc.).

Indoor Dog Potty Training

Training puppy to potty indoors entails the same steps as above but you’ll need an indoor dog potty to contain the mess.

Be patient, consistent and kind with your puppy. Spend as much time as you can with him initially, the more consistent you are with him – the faster he will learn.

Puppy house training will be one of the best investments of your time and you’ll reap the rewards with a happy, healthy and well trained dog!

Also consider pet doors as an option for allowing your dog easy access to the outdoors–he’ll be able to come and go as he needs. No more worries about getting up at 5 a.m. to let the dog out!
