House Training Your New Puppy

One thing is for sure when it comes to puppies, and that is the fact that house training them can be very frustrating. If you want to be successful, then you need to learn a little bit more about the different techniques that people find to be effective. The first thing that you need to remember is to be consistent no matter which method you choose. If your pet sees that you are inconsistent, then he or she will not be consistent in their training either. This is probably where most pet owners go wrong.

All About Paper Training

Paper training is one of the common puppy training techniques. You simply put down a newspaper or a puppy pad where you want your puppy to use the bathroom. They will learn that this is where they should go. You need to make sure that you take them and set them on the paper after they eat, and during regular intervals throughout the day. This will teach them that they need to go on the pad. When they have an accident, you should always follow up by showing them where they should have gone. This method requires a lot of clean up at times, and should be avoided with larger dogs.

All About Crate Training

Many pet owners swear by crate training, while some others think that it is not a good way to treat their new puppy. Crate training can actually be very effective if it is done the right way. You should start out by getting a crate, or a kennel, that is just big enough for your pet to stand up and turn around comfortably. Puppies are hard wired to not use the bathroom where they sleep. This means that they will not use the bathroom in the crate. It is very important when you take them out of the crate to take them immediately outside to use the bathroom. Also, remember that small puppies cannot hold their bladder for very long, so you need to take them out at regular intervals- even during the night at first. House Training A New Puppy

Which Method is Best?

While you may think that one method will work better than the other, you have to remember that they can both work. You need to try the method that is more convenient for you. Most people find that when they use the paper training method there are more accidents as the new puppy is learning. With crate training, there are fewer accidents but it also means that you have to keep your puppy in the crate unless you have your eyes on them. As they get older, accidents will become fewer and father between.

Just remember, when you are training your pet you need to have a lot of patience with them. They are still very small, and they do not realize that they are making a mistake. As they get older, accidents may be a sign of something different, and that can be addressed when or if the time comes.
