  • 1. House Breaking Your Puppy Potty Training Your Pitbull Puppies
  • 2. House Breaking Your Puppy One of the most important and first thing you will do in your Puppy Training is potty training. Your dog knows no difference between the inside of your house and the backyard. As far as they are concerned there are very few places that are not an acceptable place to pee or, poop. You probably have very different ideas. It should be relatively easy for you to train your dog to go outside if you are willing to follow the steps given here.
  • 3. The First StepsBefore you start the process you have to keepthe following things in mind –• Cut those close and cuddly ties you have already established with your puppy.• Keep him confined to a small area (not your lap) in the home. While this may seem like punishment remember that dogs were once den dwelling animals. They like their crate or doghouse and it makes them feel secure.Dogs like being praised, so by training themyou will be able to get them the praise thatthey desperately yearn for.
  • 4. Puppy Housebreaking - The Step byStep Method
  • 5. Get a Crate or, a KennelWhen you are not actively engaged in playing with orwalking your puppy he should be in a crate includingnights and while you are not home.This step is important because the puppy should notexpect, nor should he be given free run of yourhome. This will give him an early sense of dominanceand make it harder to train him.Most dogs do not poop in their kennels, so youreduce the risk of an in home accident.
  • 6. Get a Crate or, a KennelSome things that you might want to keep in mind are –• The crate should be large enough for your dog to sit up, stand, and turn around. Too large of a crate is not going to make your dog feel secure and too small will be uncomfortable.• Since your dog will likely get larger you may have to invest in successively larger kennels.• Maintain them well and you should be able to sell them online or, at a yard sale. Your local dog shelter would probably love a donation of an old kennel if you are so inclined.
  • 7. Don’t leave him alone Plan to have someone with your puppy most of the time. You should not get a puppy the day before you leave on a two week vacation. The best time to get a puppy is Friday after work so you have at least two full days to spend solely on housebreaking. Most of your time should be spent around the house with your new dog making him feel comfortable and getting him on a puppy schedule.
  • 8. Purchase Training SuppliesYou will need treats, and lots of them forhousebreaking and other behavioral training.Buy a large supply and a wide variety of treats.You might even cut up the treats into small, bite sized pieces.There are treat bags that you can purchase that will clip to yourbelt or pocket, but a sandwich bag that is sealed works just as well.You probably do not want to just keep them in your pocketbecause the dog will smell them and will not leave you alone.
  • 9. Use a Stop Watch or, Timer You will also want a stopwatch or timer. Some people, especially apartment dwellers with small dogs use pee pee pads. It seems a little gross, but can be a necessity if you live in an apartment where going downstairs constantly can be a hassle.
  • 10. Use a Stop Watch or, TimerThere are some good grass beds available that arean alternative to pee pee pads.They are much more appealing to look at and tosmell. This is also a good choice if your puppy willuse your balcony to relieve himself. Neither of theseare good options if your puppy will eventually be amedium to large sized dog. Big dogs equal bigpuddles and big poops, the pads and grass beds arenot large enough to handle it.
  • 11. Follow a ScheduleThe rule of thumb is that a puppy can hold it for one hourfor every month of age plus one hour. If your dog is twomonths old he should be able to hold it for three hours.However, this does not mean you should wait three hoursbefore taking him out. Rather start feeding the dog at thesame time every day.Some people choose to feed dogs twice a day, some once.Your dog will let you know its preference. Each time youfeed the dog he should be given a set amount of time,maybe fifteen to thirty minutes to eat and then the foodshould be taken away.
  • 12. After Dinner Potty TrainingAfter the dog has eaten he should immediately betaken out to go potty.YOU choose the area of your lawn that you want him touse as a toilet and take him to that area.Walk the dog around the area and use a cue phrasethat suits you like “Go Potty”. These cues will getengrained in your dog and he will react to themthroughout his life. Make sure that everyone in thehousehold who will take the dog out uses the same cuephrase.
  • 13. Continue your Cue PhraseContinue using your cue phrase while thepuppy goes potty, until he is completelyfinished.Once he is done praise him and give himaffection and a small treat. If he does not gopotty within five minutes take him back insideand put him in his kennel.Wait fifteen to twenty minutes and try it again.
  • 14. Repeat the ProcessAt bedtime your puppy should be locked in his kennel.While he is still young you might want to move thekennel into your bedroom at night, to make both thepuppy and yourself feel more secure.Do not feed or give water to your puppy just beforebedtime and try to get him to go potty before you puthim to bed.However, when he is small you may want to set analarm to go off at least once during the night so thatyou may take your puppy out to the potty area.
  • 15. Final StepsWith few exceptions this plan should work to haveyour puppy trained within a few days.If you still have problems you may need to adjust yourschedule so that it better suits his needs. Rememberthat even the best trained dogs have accidents whilethey are young, so be patient.
  • 16. Final StepsKeep a good supply of floor and carpet cleaner inhand to deal with any messes the puppy might makein those first few years.Also, never demean or punish your puppy foraccidents. They are just that, accidents. He is notpurposely disobeying you.All he wants is your love and approval, the more ofthat you are able to give to him the more he willbehave in a positive manner.
