Want to potty train your new puppy?

Watch this video for a complete step-by-step guide on how to potty train your new dog or

puppy.

Alright, so let's get started.

Step One: Is to control your puppy's food intake.

Puppies generally like to use the bathroom right after they eat.

So make sure you feed your puppy on a schedule so you have an idea when they're going to

do their business.

Step Two: is monitoring.

It's really important to monitor your puppy especially in the beginning stages of potty

training.

There are two ways to monitor.

Number one is to get a puppy play pen.

You can set it up when you're eating dinner or perhaps working from home.

The second option if you need to move around is to attach the puppy to you via a leash

directly to you.

That way you can keep an eye on your puppy while you're doing things around the house

without them getting too far.

Step 3 is to get a crate.

So let's be real.

Eventually you're going to have to leave the house.

Whether it's to go buy groceries or go run any other errand.

A crate is a really great place to keep your puppy safe while you're away.

The main thing with a crate is just making sure that they can get comfortable and they

start to enjoy their crate.

I like to always add in a stuffed kong for a positive association for the puppy with

the crate.

You can click the link below in the description.

I've included three of my favorite Kong recipes.

Each recipe takes about five minutes to make.

Now onto Step Four.

Throw a puppy party or a treat party when they do use the restroom outside.

Every time your puppy uses the bathroom outside you give them a ton of treats and a ton of

praise so they start to get really excited to use the bathroom outside.

This will make your puppy prefer to use the bathroom outside versus inside.

Step Five: don't punish your puppy if they do accidentally use the bathroom inside.

Usually it just means that you weren't diligent enough taking them out.

In fact, you should be taking them out once an hour.

Puppies are here to teach us patience and just be more diligent next time.

Know that punishing doesn't work It's just going to make your dog lose trust in you.

With that being said, if you catch your dog in the act pick them up and then immediately

take them outside and then praise them for using the bathroom outside.

So that's it.

The main thing I want you to remember is this take about 6 months to a year to really get

your puppy training down.

So be patient.
