Puppies are high on licks and cuddles as well as the cuteness quotient and it is of little doubt that most owners simply love to spend time with their new puppies. However, the cuteness does not count when it comes to pooping everywhere because all new puppies require certain potty training to train them to go outside when nature calls. Owners need to take it upon themselves the responsibility to train their puppies to make them fit for staying in the house by providing them some of the essential house training skills, and potty training figures way up on that list. Here is a list of four such potty tips for new puppies that can help their owners better train the tiny pets all about going outside to poop.
- Owners need to be patient with their new puppies and have to surrender to the fact that no matter how much effort they put in, the puppy may still poop inside the house the first few days. Thus, they need to able to take the puppy out in time, and should put the blame on themselves if any accidents happen to take place. The owners should pay attention to the various signs that the puppy may give out about imminent bowel movement such as sniffing or moving around in circles. They should waste no time once they see their puppy making such gestures of restlessness.
- Owners of new puppies also need to make a daily routine about the pup’s meal timings, and keep at least thirty minutes in hand for feeding and taking the pup outside for potty. If they follow the same timing every day, they can help the puppy get used to the routine. The owners need to romp around with their puppies for about ten minutes after the mealtime, and this can provide the puppies an indication about the environment to expect during potty time.
- Owners should use any particular word for praising their puppies so that they can follow that they are receiving praises if they poop in the designated area. Similarly, they should also use another particular word when the puppy has done something naughty.
- Finally, owners should spend as much time as they can with their new puppies to make the puppy feel home in their presence and pick up signs about the body language from their puppies. This can go a long way in helping them predict when their puppy may poop next.
