In the late 90’s I found a simple way to potty train a puppy, and it worked so well I’ve been using it ever since. After a week of using these tips you’ll eliminate 90% of accidents, and you’ll be well on the way to a having a fully house trained pup.
The process works by being preventing accidents before they happen, and using praise at the right moments to ensure your dog understands where they’re supposed to be going potty in the first place.
Since potty training is an ongoing process I’ve split this article up into two week segments. The first week is where the potty training magic happens, and the second week is where the consistency of week one starts to pay off.
The First Week of Potty Training Your Puppy
The first week of potty training a puppy is extremely tiring, but I promise it gets easier. You might find yourself questioning why you decided on a puppy to begin with — trust me, we’ve all been there. But after the first week you’ll be able to relax a bit more, and you’ll start to see how well your consistency pays off.
The first week is where you’re going to be watching your pup like a hawk, making sure you intervene before any accidents happen. During the first week you’re going to need to be aware where your pup is at all times.
