Housetraining your pet doggies is extremely important. You can use many of the dog’s instincts on your side. 

Dogs do not like to soil their immediate living quarters, and will avoid elimination if they are in a confined area such as a crate. 

Another instinct is that once they are eliminated in a certain area, they have left a “scent post” and will return to the same area again. 

Make sure that the dog is in good health before attempting to housetrain a dog or puppy. 

2 Methods That You Can Try:

Method 1: Using A Crate Or Cage

The easiest way to housetrain your dog is to use a crate or cage. This is to make use of the dog’s instinct against soiling his or her den. 

If your dog is not accustomed to the crate, leave the door open and feed your dog one or two meals in the crate then close the door for the next meal. 

Once your pet doggies get used to the crate you can start feeding outside of the crate. Put bedding in the crate to make it comfortable and tie the door open when the dog is not confined to the crate.

A note: you may have to make the crate smaller by bunching up bedding in the back of the crate if you have a large crate and a small puppy. If the crate is too big the pup may still eliminate in one corner and sleep in the other.

Method 2: Close Supervision & Regular Schedule

The  most important points to housetraining are close supervision and a regular schedule. Feed your dog at the same times each day and only offer water at scheduled intervals of about two hours. 

Don’t give your dog any water for at least three hours before bed. Let your dog out to eliminate after every meal, nap, and play. If he does not eliminate, try again in a few minutes. 

Keep your dog in the crate at any time that you cannot supervise, and while your dog is not in the crate, watch for any signs that he needs to eliminate (such as sniffing the floor, scratching the door, whining, and pacing).

When you let your dog out to eliminate, you should go out too. When you see that your dog is about to be eliminated, repeat a word or phrase (such as “hurry up”) that your dog will associate with the act. 

You will definitely appreciate this tool when you have to take your dog on a long car trip.

At night, keep your dog in the crate. If she whines after being quiet for several hours she probably needs to go out. 

Be patient, and you will find that the number of outings will decrease as your pup learns to control herself.
