What is the best way to housetrain a dog? You should start training the puppy as soon as possible because the young dog learns the fastest up to the 20th week of life. So where his dog toilet is.
Use the embossing phase
Anyone who assumes that you shouldn’t start training a puppy right away, but should first give the puppy a “grace period”, is wrong. Exactly the opposite is the case: a young dog learns most easily up to its 20th week of life, this is the so-called imprinting phase. It is, therefore, best to start with basic training just a few days after the arrival of your little four-legged friend. The basic prerequisite for a successful upbringing is that you show patience and remain calm if it doesn’t work out right away. Punishing the puppy is absolutely taboo!
The “dangerous” times
In order for the puppy to be housebroken, you must observe it very closely at first. The goal is to get him outside when he “must” and before he relieves himself at home. “Dangerous” times are after eating and after waking up. Playing also usually affects the bladder in puppies. Also, young dogs still urinate a lot, so make sure you go out more often. If he seems restless in the apartment and starts sniffing intensely, you should hurry. If it comes loose outdoors, give plenty of praise! Surely there will still be a mishap in the house from time to time. But then don’t scold your puppy. At best, admonish him with a “No” and still carry him out quickly. If he breaks up there again, give him lots of praise again. To help him sleep through the night as much as possible, take him out one more time before bed.
Convert the sleeping place
For the first time, a large, high box has proven itself as a place to sleep, in which the dog basket is placed and from which the dog cannot get out. Since the pup instinctively doesn’t want to soil his bed, he will make himself known here by whining if he has urgent business to attend to. Even then, walk him out the door quickly and don’t forget the praise. Your four-legged friend will quickly get used to the collar and leash, but again you should proceed very carefully here. If the puppy is initially reluctant to walk with you on the leash, playfully lure it to you with treats and encouraging words. Practice is best when the little one is rested and active, but never for more than 5 to 10 minutes. Always end the “kids training” with a sense of achievement for the dog, i.e. with an easy exercise that always works, so that it can look forward to the next time.
