How to Potty Train a Puppy in No Time

Consistency ensures you potty train a puppy in little time. Puppies have small bladders and can only hold their urine for a short amount of time. Failing to provide ample opportunities for puppies to go outside and relieve their bladder or bowels will result in failed potty training.

When you bring home a new puppy, make sure you have ample opportunities throughout the day to potty train a puppy. Crate training works to extend the amount of time a puppy manages between potty trips, Even if you crate train, a puppy will have accidents if you do not take him outside a few times a day.

Quickly Potty Train a Puppy by Crate Training

Dogs instinctively know not to empty their bladder or bowels in their sleeping area. Dogs like to stay clean and will keep their sleeping area clean. When you crate train, you help teach a puppy how to hold his bladder. You will fail, however, if you leave the puppy in a crate for an unreasonable amount of time.

Never place puppy pads in the dog's crate. Pads teach them it is okay to urinate or defecate inside their crate

By nine weeks of age, a puppy should be able to hold its bladder for seven hours. However, his brings them to the point when it feels like their bladder will burst, so always start with trips outside every few hours. When they go potty outside, reward them with lots of praise and a tasty treat.

If they do have an accident inside, scold them only if you catch them in the act. Pick them up immediately and take them outside to the approved spot. If your dog is whining, use that as a cue to go outside immediately.

As the puppy ages, start stretching the time between potty breaks. Eventually, a dog should be able to hold it for a full work day or overnight.

Regulate Feeding Times While You Potty Train a Puppy

Feeding a puppy at regular intervals helps when you potty train a puppy. The dog's bowels will be on a pattern if you maintain set feeding times, so you can arrange trips outside to coincide a few hours after meals. Provide fresh water during the meal and then start taking the puppy outside an hour later when the bladder will have filled up.

Reward the puppy with attention or a small dog treat when he does go outside. Remember that a puppy will need to go outside at least five or six times a day, every four hours or so. When the dog starts to associate outside with potty breaks, even holding his bladder for seven hours, a dog will need to go outside a minimum of three times per day. Don't expect a morning bathroom break and evening bathroom break to be enough.

Reward Often

When you potty train a puppy, make sure every time the puppy does what he should that he is rewarded verbally and with affection. Dogs crave their owner's attention and that goes a long way in effectively potty training a puppy.
