Housebreaking a puppy is a task that requires consistency and persistence. Diet and scheduling are two of the main factors of your success with potty training. What you feed your puppy and when you feed him need to be as regular and consistent as possible. Because your puppy’s digestive system is very sensitive, it is important to feed him the same food at the same times every day while you are housebreaking him. About 20 minutes after a meal take puppy out to his spot and stay with him, encouraging him in a positive voice with the phrase you have chosen, such as “Do your business” or “Go potty”. Soon puppy will learn to associate this phrase with relieving himself. When he’s finished, reward him with lavish praise, and then go right into the house.

Housebreaking is a process, and done with consistency and patience, it can accomplished with ease. Don’t set expectations too high, it’s hard to predict how long it will take. And if you have to leave your puppy, call us at BellyRub Pet Services. We can help.
