What to expect when house training a puppy in 7 days
House training a puppy in 7 days is not difficult to do and is often thought to be impossible to do. While it may be tricky at first, it’s certainly doable and with a little practice, your pup will be housebroken in 7 days or less. It usually takes about a day or two for your pup to really understand what house training is all about, but it largely depends on the breed of dog and how old they are.
House training doesn’t have to take months to accomplish, so let’s look at some things you can do to effectively house train your puppy in 7 days.
One of the most important things is to set a schedule for your puppy to follow. This can be as simple as taking him outside to go to the bathroom after every meal and feeding him at the same time every day so he gets used to the fact that he has to go to the bathroom at a certain time. Young puppies often don’t know they have to go potty until it’s too late, so if you can get them out before they do, you’ll have a much better chance of avoiding an accident on your carpet.
Give your pup a treat and say something positive like “good boy!” right after he finishes going to the bathroom will also help him learn to go to the bathroom faster. It works well and should not be overlooked when house training your puppy. Puppies want to please you and love food too, so if you can show him that he is pleasing you and give him food; he will understand you much better.
Of course, there will be times when your pup just won’t be able to get out on time. This is normal and part of raising a puppy, so when it happens, don’t panic. Yelling at you won’t do you or your pup any good and may even make things worse and confuse your pup. The best thing to do when this happens is to let it go and clean the place with a good pet disinfectant. You don’t want your pup to be able to smell the floor he went on and think it’s okay to go there.
It is possible to house train a puppy in 7 days, but you will still need to constantly monitor your puppy to make sure he doesn’t have any accidents. After that, you shouldn’t have to worry about your puppy pottying at your house again.
