Essential Tools For Housebreaking A Dog
If you have recently or are about to become the owner of a dog then the likelihood is
that you are thinking about how much fun owning a dog will actually be. Instead, you
should actually be thinking about how much hard work you should put in during the
first few weeks to ensure that you get the puppy of your dreams without the bad
behaviour that could come with it! Housebreaking a dog is an important part of the
early days so you should make sure that you are ready to start right away!
There are a few essential tools that you should invest in before housebreaking a dog
because they will make your task easier, and some of them you may not think of:
A Crate – Some people do not like to use these when housebreaking a dog but
investing in one is a good idea because it will bring the process on a lot. Your
dog will soon learn when he or she can or cannot go to the toilet.
Newspaper – This is for potential accidents in the house. Not only does it soak
up urine well but it can also be laid for your dog as he or she is given a free
run of the house in the first few days. Many breeders start to train with
A Journal – This will help you to identify behaviour behind accidents when
housebreaking a dog. It will also allow you to spot patterns and any signals
your dog gives you when asking to go out.
Treats – If housebreaking a dog is to be a success then it should be rewarding.
Only give treats for good behaviour to start with after they have been outside
and then decrease the regularity of their use.
