Are you looking for the best possible advice when it comes to your dog house training needs? Are you unsure of what would be the most efficient and painless way to teach your puppy how to be properly potty trained? We strive to give you the best in dog training advice as well as sensible dog house training methods.
One such dog house training method is as follows: For starters you should begin your dog house training as soon as you bring your new puppy home. Proper positive dog training should be started immediately.
Do not bring a new dog home and then wait days or weeks to start training her. This could result in habit patterns that will make dog training that much more difficult.
Another reason why you should start your dog house training methods the very instant that you obtain your puppy is because the dog will relieve itself frequently. It does not yet give any thought to going potty other than based on what it feels when the need arises.
And by all means, with any dog house training, you should invariably expect your new puppy to have a few "accidents" before she is fully trained to go to the bathroom where you want her to. This is just common sense, but you would be surprised as to how many new dog owners will actually yell or get mad at a new puppy for going to the bathroom.
Having said that, I want to give you my number one rule when it comes to dog house training. Get a pen and paper, right this down, and ingrain it in your head: If your dog is not yet trained, then you should never punish your puppy if she happens to have an accident and goes potty on the floor, making a mess.
Not only is it considered negative dog house training, but the practice of punishing the dog for having accidents will almost alway result in what is called "submissive urination".
Submissive urination is when your dog is so scared or intimidated by you approaching her that she will bow her head and accidentally pee in front of you. If you do not want your dear puppy to feel and act this way then please follow the dog house training advice found throughout our website.
