House Training Dogs & Potty Training Puppies

How to Start the House and Potty Training Process

The holidays on occasion brings a new dog or puppy into our lives and is in fact a present that keeps on giving all year round. This gift is one that comes back to you with a joyful part of your life filled with a lot of wags.

Potty training or house training is an integral part of your relationship with your dog right from the get go.  It does establish that you are the leader and you are setting the rules.  It also builds a great relationship simply out the time you will spend with your dog while doing the initial training.

The first and and most important step to successful potty training is do not react ever to your dog if you did not catch the accident in the moment it was happening.

Lets face it, if you have a new puppy or dog setting the rules is something you have to do repetitiously until it becomes a habit.

Dogs think in the moment.  If you get mad when you walked around the corner and saw the nice dark piddle mark in the middle of your favorite rug and started yelling at the dog... 
but in that instant your dog has walked up behind you and was quietly starting into a sit... 
your dog thinks you just got mad for that.... 

the sitting at your feet.... 
not the pee all over the rug thats quickly turning to the unpleasant urine smell.

Ignore the dog.  And go about cleaning the area.  This is ultimately the most important thing you must do to move your dog on to a perfectly house trained dog.

The WAY you clean the urine is just as important as the timing you will learn in this 7 part series on how to house and potty train your dog. 

Urine has an enzyme in it that remains in your carpet or floors if you were to just soak it up, spray some cleaner on it, soak it some more, and let it dry.  Which is the common method of cleaning up the mistake.

Removing the urine enzyme is the most important part of the potty training process.

A well trained dog in San Diego is easier to attain than many locations around the country simply because there are so many dog friendly events you can around the city.  As a professional dog trainer, my main message to people when they need help with an unruly dog:  Don’t focus on obedience only.  Focus on attention and activity. 

It makes it more fun for you and your dog puts a paw up quickly for this program.

Boy calls dog who fought off cougar his 'guardian'

If you think the family dog is just hanging out for the free ride, think again after this story.  Link below.

Our dogs provide the wag of our day without even realizing it.  For many, the best friend that is always there for them may not even be recognized but when it comes right down to it the truth of the matter is you can rely on your dog for many things.

Your dog can go so far as to save your life like the boy in the story, or be your best training partner ever.  Those who are dog owners tend to get a little more out of getting outside and getting active and the cool events that are available to with your dog these days are creating an even better bond.

Tribute to Baxter the World’s Oldest Hospice Therapy Dog

After watching the video included in this story it can’t help but make everyone want to give a little more to make those around you enjoy every day we are here.

The joy that dogs bring us is the unconditional love factor. It’s easy to overlook sometimes because its always there. No matter the day, the weather, the economic climate, your health or wealth, the family dog is wagging and happy to see you. Every single day.

Take a few moments to enjoy our life and all of those who contribute. Go out for a walk with the dog and take in some fresh air and the peace spending a little time with your faithful friend the dog gives.
