Hello, i figured i would start a blog to share my training tips and some advice i have learned over the years of owning and raising corgis.
Bear with me as i am not the best with communication skills and sometimes may come off as rude. i assure you my intentions are good but sometimes my wording needs help...
This week im going to talk about #pottytraining tips.
Potty training a puppy is not as daunting a task as it might seem. It just requires consistency and commitment on your part.
Keep it clean They learn this because their mother keeps the den cleaned up, immediately getting rid of any messes her puppies make. Without that scent around, the puppies don’t associate the area with relieving themselves.
How do we recreate this idea for our puppies, then? Obviously, it’s important to thoroughly clean and deodorize any places where the puppy has had an accident immediately, but we also need them to learn to associate outside with bathroom breaks and learn that inside is not the place to do their business.
Keep a schedule
Keep in mind, too, that the most common times for a puppy to have to go are right after sleeping, eating, and playing.
As for the puppy pads, they are only a temporary solution until you can take your dog outside. During the time you’re using them for training, slowly move the pad closer and closer to the door your dog will exit through when it’s time to go out. This will build an association in his mind between that door and going to the bathroom. Eventually, going out that door itself will trigger the behavior in your dog’s mind: “Okay, go.”
