Simple Guidelines and Techniques for Training Puppies

Training puppies is a time consuming task, so be prepared to spend alot of time with your new best friend.

As a new puppy owner the first behavior you will most likely want to teach him is where to do his business.

Make sure the place you choose is permanent--preferably outside. Once you get your pup to his designated area--Choose a command word that you will use consistently.

For example: "Come on," "go potty" or "hurry up" in order to coax him into going.

Once your puppy is finished be sure to praise him. Through positive reinforcement your pup will know he did the right thing and will learn quickly.

Potty Guidelines For Taking Out Pups

  • First thing in the morning

  • Immediately after eating or drinking

  • Immediately after any excitement, exercise or play

  • Anytime their behavior suggests it

  • Before bedtime

    In between the above relief trips you should take your pup out at least once every hour. This will continue for a few months until the puppy's bladder matures and he is better able to retain himself.
