House training the easy way
« on: March 17, 2007, 01:28:33 AM »
House training your pup should not take more than a couple weeks, don't get me wrong, you still have to get your pup outside and not really count on him holding it too long, but all you have to do is make sure you get your pup out for every potty time, DO NOT LET ANY ACCIDENTS HAPPEN IN THE HOUSE. Even if this means that you have to get up and take your pup out every 20-30 mins, do it. If they start going in the house a stern NO, or a loud clap of your hands to startle them and get their attention will show them its not acceptable in the house, then take them outside and give A LOAD of praise.

although this method works really fast to the point of your pup not just going in the house, but waiting for you to take him/her outside, you still cannot trust your pup to be fully potty trained untill he/she has not had any accidents for atleast 6 months. just to be sure.

hope this helps =D

That is basically what we did with Otie, he was trained, like you said, in a couple weeks. You just have to stay on top of the potty schedule & not give them the opportunity to have an accident. Also, watching for the signs is key. Otis' #1 sign that he had to go was sniffing the floor around the perimeter of the kitchen.

Yeah - you can always tell when a pup has to go -- their nose is to the floor & that sniffer is a sniffin' like crazy. Prada does this. :)

I like bell training too.

But remember that the two really are separate. You teach them to potty outside, then teach them to ring the bell to ask to be let out. A lot of people have trouble teaching that last little part. I taught Koda to bark or whine by barking at him. :dizzy2:

I love the bell training.  We used it after a relapse in potty training.

Thats what I do , my girl Rippley was pretty much house trained by 16 weeks .  Not to say she didn't have an uh-oh  :uhoh:   , which was very rare for her .  This is what I do , going out after every meal , after playing , pulling the water up at 6 pm put them out at 8 then as late as posable like 12 ish , then around 4 (hubby does that one  ;) ) then at 6 am then the whole thing starts over again .  :wideeyed:   . I am a stay at home mum , so it does make things go alot smoother . 

I will be going through this again in a few weeks (end of April) with a boy pup .  So fingers crossed he will be just as easy  ;)
