Puppy Potty Training Tips

The first rule of training a new puppy is repetition and consistency. Taking your new puppy to a specific spot in the back yard, repetitively, will train your new puppy to go exactly where you want the puppy to eliminate. Always take him out the same door and go directly to that same spot. Know that a small puppy has a smaller bladder, meaning that it will fill much sooner than a larger breed as a puppy. At first, you will need to be available to take the pup out every 2-3 hours. Don’t wait until he piddles on the floor, and don’t punish or yell at the puppy if he has an accident as we here at Puppy Love use the method of positive reinforcement. Simply pick him up and take him to the designated potty spot, then reward him with praise and reward.
