This video will show you tips to potty train your dog indoors using puppy pee pads.
A few rules to this method are to be consistent and disciplined until the dog learns the habits that the dog owner desires. The Puppy Potty Training instructions are shown in the steps below:
Step 1.) Place the puppy training pad with the quilted side up in a designated area that the dog will be able to start using the pads (indoor or outdoor).
Step 2.) Try to encourage the dog to go to the bathroom on a regular schedule. Some good examples would be: upon waking up, directly after eating, after a walk, and before bed time. When it is time, walk the puppy over to the pad and use whatever command that feels right (i.e. “Go potty!”, “Do the business!”).
Step 3.) When the dog successfully uses the pad, it is vital to reward the puppy with positive reinforcement and even small rewards. By doing this consistently, the dog will associate the behavior with praise and will be more inclined to make the behavior a habit.
Step 4.) If the pet goes to the bathroom in an unfortunate area of the house, condone the behavior and lead the dog back to the pad. Try to teach them that the puppy training pad is the only place to go.
Step 5.) It may take a few days or even weeks before the dog becomes used to using the pad regularly. But with regular training schedules and reinforcement, this method has a very high success rate. Once the habit of using the puppy training pads has been developed, move the puppy pad outdoors or in whatever location is most desired for the puppy to go. The puppy should understand that the pee pad is the right place to go, no matter where the pad is located. Once the puppy learns the behavior of going outdoors on the pad, remove the pad altogether and train the puppy to go outdoors without the pads.
The hope is to not have to buy and use puppy training pads forever. There are many different guidelines to potty training pets with pee pads, but if you follow the general guidelines in this video, there is a very good chance that you will see improvement from your dog. Thank you!
