If you recently got a new puppy, first of all, congratulations! Having a puppy is a lot of fun, but it is also a lot of work to get the puppy to become the dog of your dreams. The first step is potty training your puppy to know where to go potty, and to let you know when he or she need to go out. In an apartment, you need to have a plan setup as soon as the puppy comes home. That way, the training can begin right away.
Routines Help with Puppy Potty Training
The best thing you can do when it comes to potty training a puppy, whether it is in an apartment or a house, is to create a routine. Use the same phrase each time you take your puppy outside so they associate that phrase with relieving themselves. Plus, make sure to take them out often. Puppies need to go out about every 30-60 minutes at first, then as they get older, they can wait longer between breaks. You should also make sure your puppy gets food and water at the same times each day. It will help their body get used to needing to relieve itself at the same time, giving your dog more control and giving you a better idea of when your pet is going to need to go outside.
There are many ways of training your puppy. You can turn to a dog coach for advice, or you can even try online dog training. If you turn to the owner of the open dog kennels in Beverly Hills known as The Loved Dog, you can even get online dog training from a renowned dog coach, specifically Tamar Gellar. If you want your puppy to become the adult canine companion that fits perfectly in with your family, consider giving The Loved Dog a call.
