Potty Training Your Puppy

Here are some tips and tricks for potty training your puppy. First, some owners have found that taking their puppy out every two hours helps keep him on a schedule and prevents accidents. Over time, owners gradually increase the hours between potty breaks to help the puppy adjust to holding it longer and longer. Some owners also encourage the puppy to go outside on his own to potty by taking him to the door every two hours and then opening it and letting the puppy out into the fenced in yard to go on his own. Once the puppy goes, he is given a reward or treat to encourage the behavior and promote consistency. If your puppy has an accident, put him in time out in his crate for a few minutes so that he associates going potty inside with bad consequences.
