How do I potty train my puppy?

Pottty Training 101

Your new puppy is easy to love. It's cute, cuddly and might even fit in the palm of your hand. However, not everything your puppy does it adorable. Getting potty training out of the way helps makes life easier for everyone.

It's important to remember that your puppy has not learned this skill yet and is in a new environment. Every puppy is going to make mistakes while still learning, and you do not want to scare an already skittish animal. Be firm with your dog, but do not overdo it.

A dog does not instantly learn anything. It takes repetition. Set up indoor and outdoor areas for you pup to use. Set up a schedule for bathroom breaks, and take the dog to these areas. Your puppy will start following the schedule, so it is important to be consistent.

While being too mean can scare your puppy, there is no overdoing it when it comes to rewarding your puppy. Praise, pet and give your pup treats so it knows it did the right thing. All this will help your puppy be potty trained quickly and without hassle.
