Housebreaking a Puppy with the UGODOG dog potty
Housebreaking a Puppy A puppy should be taken out after every meal and up to six times a day. It is important to know that a puppy cannot control his muscles until about 12 weeks of age, so good housebreaking routines should be practiced during this age group. A sign that your puppy needs relieve himself is turning around in circles. It is very difficult to practice housebreaking a puppy if he smells urine in places where he is not allowed to pee on. Using the UGODOG Indoor Dog Potty is one easy method for litter box training your puppy. The UGODOG dog toilet should be placed far away from his bed. The last place your puppy will want to relieve himself is in his bed, so once he starts pacing or sniffing the area, take him to the UGODOG dog litter box. Don't rush him while he's outside and don't play with him during the process. Take him out after every meal and play session before putting him back in the crate and be consistent with your dog potty training. You might want to keep track of every time he needs to go outside to make a set schedule. Once you start potty training, use a consistent word or words to build your communication with your dog. Words like 'outside' or 'potty' are easy. Or, if you have trouble keeping track of time from the last potty session, set a time for every 30 minutes to take your puppy out and gradually increase the time as he grows.
