House Training Puppies - Basics Of Dog Training Commands
Successfully house training puppies is always a task
that requires a lot of patience and understanding, but the rewards are
many, and your pup will surely appreciate your efforts. Dogs are highly
attuned to their owner's feelings, facial expressions, gestures, and
tone of voice. For this reason, it's important to be firm but gentle,
and offer plenty of praise while being consistent.
The first point to keep in mind when trying to house train your new puppy,is that your puppy really isn't
physically capable of holding their urine until they are about 12 weeks
of age. By this time, the bladder and bowel muscles are more developed
enabling them to gain control. However, most puppies will still have
"accidents" until they are at least six months old when they're better
able to completely grasp the housetraining process.
Next puppy house training tip, and perhaps most important of all, if you don't actually catch
your dog in the act, then DO NOT punish them or reprimand them in
anyway. Even if only 30 seconds have passed, it's too long for a puppy
to remember and then associate being disciplined with the act of peeing
in the house.
While the numerous books or training manuals on the subject of house
training puppies are no doubt informative, they do lack the invaluable
benefits of being able to see and hear the trainer. Puppy training
videos, on the other hand, offer the visuals necessary to
how the trainer interacts with the dog.
They also provide the
opportunity to hear how important verbal cues are, and show ways of
bonding with the puppy during house training sessions.
In fact tone of voice and possitive interaction are the basics of all dog training from initially house training puppies right through to teaching your dog advanced commands and dog tricks.
Puppy House Training Tips to Remember
- No form of physical punishment is ever acceptable when house training a puppy or
dealing with any unacceptable dog behavior. Not only is it a form of abuse, but any puppy
will respond and learn from praise and encouragement, but never from
anger or cruelty.
- Instead of only correcting your puppy when he does something wrong,
be sure to praise him lavishly when he does relieve himself in the
- When initially house training your puppy use verbal communication to convey the message to your dog that you
want him or her to go outside when it's time to go to the bathroom.
Pick one phrase, such as "go potty" or "go pee" and be sure to say the
same thing each and every time over and over again. You will be suprised how quickly your dog learns what you are wanting of him.
- Another point when puppy house training is to watch for the telltale signs that it's about time for puppy
to go. Walking or running in circles, or sniffing the floor are two
common signs that it's time to head outside.
- Try to let your dog out as often as possible starting early in the house
training process, as normally, young puppies may need to go as often as
every hour. Once your puppy is house trained you will then want to move on to the next phase of the basics of dog training
