Common Mistakes While Toilet Training your Puppy

by Pooch Patch Best Artificial Grass for Dogs

Our canine friends are like our furry babies that need to be cared for and looked after. Any dog owner will tell you, toilet training a puppy is no easy task. If you are living in a house or an apartment, it goes without saying that toilet training is a necessity. You just cannot have your four-legged friend pee all over the expensive couch or the Persian rug.

Dogs are independent creatures. They have their own wishes and desires and you cannot force them to do something. While it may be easy to toilet train some puppies, for the others, it may be exceedingly hard. Being pushy with the dog while toilet training it is a common problem that is often seen with new dog owners. When it comes to teaching your dog the right manners, patience is the key. 

Do you remember that adorable dog, Buster from Bruce Almighty? In spite of Bruce’s best efforts, the dog just wouldn’t pee outside. Some dogs can be a little hard to train than others. If the dogs continue to pee inside the house, you can opt for Pee Pads that have a faux grass-like appearance and do not look tacky at one corner of the house. 

Here are a few common mistakes that most new dog owners commit while toilet training their dogs:

  • Imagine this. How would you feel if you were scolded by your parents for every little mistake that you did? Not very good, I suppose. The same thing applies to your dog as well. If you constantly scold your dog for an accident that he might have had in the house, he could get scared, grow to hate you and never learn the lessons of toilet training. It can become an act of defiance against the owners. 

  • Many people think they can start the potty training after the puppy has grown up a little. However, they couldn’t be more wrong. The toilet training should be started as early as possible, if not from Day 1. Once the puppy gets accustomed to peeing wherever he likes, that habit can be very hard to break and the dog might also get confused.

  • Make sure your dog knows that you love him. Disciplining a dog is necessary while training him, but being cruel to it is not. Always cuddle with your dog and let him show his affections towards you by allowing him to lick your face. This creates a stronger bond between the dog and the owner and it is far easier to train a dog if he trusts you.

Puppies are basically like little babies and they too make mistakes. Patience, consistency, and perseverance are a few key factors that are needed to toilet train your dog successfully.
