House Training A Puppy In 5 Days

Can it really be done???

Potty training a puppy to go outside

In answer to that first question - MAYBE - depends a great deal on your pup's age and experience.

So what are the do's and don’ts in Potty Training Your Puppy?

House training your puppy is about consistency, patience, and positive reinforcement. The goal is to instill good habits and build a loving bond with your pet.

It can typically take 3-6 months for a puppy to be fully house trained, but some puppies may take up to a year. Your puppy's previous living conditions can also influence the way he goes about his business. You may find that you need to help your puppy break old habits in order to establish more desirable ones.

But is there anything worse first thing in the morning?

You open your eyes to see the sun shining in and it's going to be another lovely day to get things done, so you bound out of bed and as you leave your bedroom you notice a horrible smell.

Alarm bells start to ring as you explore.

He's on his bed wagging his tail at you, pleased to see you, but he's been rolling in his own poo, spreading it everywhere. That means another big cleaning sessionguilty dog after peeing in house before anything else is done and also puts the kybosh on your wonderful day straight away, making you late for everything you've planned.

Annoying isn't it? Why does he do it? Why is he so happy?

Gritting your teeth you take him outside to pee and within seconds of coming back in he decides to continue with a little sprinkle all over your new rug.

Aaggghh!   Throat gripping time???

Surely toilet training a puppy or a dog should not take this long or be so hard? You searched for tips for house training a puppy before he came home with you, so you were prepared - or so you thought.

You bought a crate and training mats for the first few weeks as that was recommended for house training a puppy while working away from home, but it didn't seem to work. Perhaps he was too young?

But still it goes on. Every morning is the same. Get up - clean the muck up - get him washed off - it's a nightmare. Not what you thought it would be like at all...

Again you ask yourself
"surely toilet training a puppy or a dog should not take this long or be so hard?"

You’re right. It shouldn’t and it isn’t. The thing is this...

There’s no magic pills to sort this little problem out, but there are lots of little tricks that will turn your puppy’s toileting around and you are probably not using most of them.

The crazy thing is that most people don’t do any of these things because they have never been told exactly what to do. Nobody has ever explained how important these little things are when you are toilet training your puppy.

They are all really simple and common sense when you think about them. So let me give you a couple of them and point you in the right direction so you can get the idea and then I’ll tell you about the most awesome toilet training resource that I found for those of you who are interested.

1. First off - Stay calm - Don't fly off the handle:

Firstly the thing that you have to accept is that you are responsible for you're puppy's actions. It's like training a young child or baby to use a potty. You can’t blame them for not being toilet trained the moment they are born and taking your frustrations out on them is not the way to go.

Fine... It’s annoying, but becoming angry, shouting at your puppy and being wound up will do nothing to encourage them to relax and follow your commands to toilet outside!

Just imagine you are trying to go to the toilet with an angry frustrated person, much bigger than you, standing there staring at you, or even worse, shouting at you!

Let's look at it another way...

Why do you think your puppy pee'd in the house in the first place?

Because he needed to go, right there and then? Right?

He was maybe holding on, probably bursting, but needed to go and so he thought, “OK, I gotta have a pee…like NOW!”

And if the door was shut as well, then what do you seriously expect to happen?

Your puppy is not vindictive or trying to wind you up. It's just a natural call of nature.

So when you rub your puppy’s nose in it…They are still not sure where they are supposed to go.

Repeat…They are still not sure where they are supposed to go.

Got it yet?

So when you start telling your puppy off for peeing in front of the couch all you are doing is telling your puppy that this is not the right place. Try somewhere else…

But…  They are still not sure where they are supposed to go!

That’s right. You need to show them. You need to train them. That’s why it’s called toilet training.

2. Stay focused on the goal:

It’s odd that the biggest mistake people make with toilet training is the most important one. Most people take their eye off the goal too soon and start telling poor puppy off when they get it wrong.

The secret is this...

Keep rewarding your puppy with amazing treats every time they go toilet in the right place…

That’s right. Every single time. With amazing treats. For a long time!

Nothing will motivate your puppy faster than rewarding them with a couple of amazing tasting little treats immediately after they have finished.

But do make a point of doing this immediately. Not 30 seconds later… It should be within 2 seconds. Too late and in your puppy's mind the connection to the pee they just did will be forgotten. Get your treat in their mouth quick and they will very quickly start to link the two.

The Ah-Ha moment is when your puppy thinks… “So if I pee on the grass you give me the most amazing treats??? OK…Deal!”

Check out Doggy Dans video to see how he goes about it...

Unfortunately most of us will reward for a week or two and then stop. We forget, get bored, run out of treats or can be bothered.

One little tip I heard on a great 40 minute toilet training audio the other day is to leave a jar with treats outside by the pee-pee area so that even if you forget to take treats out with you there are already some at hand.

3. It does take time - much longer than the 5 days

Remember that puppies are still young and small. They are still learning and it will take time. Anyone with young children will tell you that toilet training takes TIME and PATIENCE! Sometimes 3 years or more for young children.

Think about this for a second.

How old is your puppy? 16 weeks? Children can’t even lift their own heads at that age and we become frustrated that our puppy isn’t perfectly toilet trained by that age…

So take a breath and relax. The good news is that you can do it and your puppy is perfectly normal.

Focus on the successes and learn to quickly put the mistakes behind you. Look to see what you could have done differently but don't beat yourself up. We've all been there and the good news is that puppy will learn and it’s not forever.

4. The rug

This is just a little tip I heard from that toilet training audio file I mentioned earlier that I’ll tell you about in a second. It made me smile because it is exactly what happens all the time.

Here’s the scenario…

Your puppy finds a nice thick piece of rug that is not the carpet. The rug feels nice, a bit like grass and looks like it is a good place to go pee-pee. They go pee-pee or even worse poo-poo!

Unfortunately for you it is your brand new, thick, white, shag pile rug and it’s very hard to get the stains and smell out of it.

Even when carefully cleaned, your puppy can still smell the pee and poo even if you can't and so now it even smells like a good place to go. Before long your beautiful expensive shag pile rug is a very costly dumping mat.

The secret is simple. Pick it up and put it back down in 6 months time in perfect condition. No stains, no marks, no regrets. Trust me on the shag pile rug. Do not take the chance! It is a very slippery slope.

5. Knowledge is everything:

When it comes to toilet training there really are so many things to think about and you will simply not think of them all on your own. You need to be told the secrets before your toileting goes down the pan.

And the best place that I have found by far to get hold of all the tips about dog and puppy training including toilet training is Doggy Dan’s website The Online Dog Trainer.

Dan even offers a 3 Day $1 trial of the site that YOU can take advantage of, so I suggest the next thing you do today is take a look inside the site!

Inside the site are over 250 videos including a whole section with an amazing 40 minute recording on toilet training your puppy. It’s fantastic and covers everything that you could possibly want to know.

Here’s a couple of tips to give you an idea of what's inside.

-    Those tricky times. What to do during the night and when you are at work to prevent accidents. How long to leave them and what to leave them with.

-    Setting your puppy up to win so that they can’t make mistakes.

-    Why some older puppy’s regress at 4 months old and why you need to get them back on track immediately.

-    Older dogs. Why much older dogs who are several years old can suddenly start going toilet in the house and what to do to stop it.

-    Habit Breaking. How to break an old habit if your puppy is toileting all over the house.

-    Crate training. Everything you need to know about crate training your puppy if you choose to use that approach.

-    When to begin house training your puppy

Plus all the tips, and advice on every topic to do with toilet training such as cleaning up the mess, feeding, watering and toilet frequency and schedules.

So that’s all for now. As you can see it’s a big topic. I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this and that you get a handle on your puppy's toileting sooner rather than later.

If you really are struggling and want to end all the frustration immediately then I strongly suggest you take a look at Doggy Dan’s site The Online Dog Trainer and check out the Toilet Training section inside the site.
