Puppy Training 101
Housebreaking methods must be practiced consistently and by all members of the household. It is important that your puppy is treated the same way each time he does or does not do what you expect of him. Always use positive training with ample rewards to teach your puppy what you want him to do. Never use punishment when your puppy does not please you. Do not spank, hit, yell at or otherwise punish your puppy if he slips and has an accident in the house.Take your puppy outside frequently to relieve himself. Try to keep your puppy’s schedule consistent, taking him outside at the same times each day. Ideally, when your puppy is not resting or sleeping, he should be taken outside every 2-3 hours. Your puppy will need to go outdoors when he awakens in the morning and also before he goes to bed at night. Take him outside shortly after he eats as well.
