House Training a Puppy: MyPetED Veterinarians On Potty Training Puppies

By Debra Horwitz, DVM, Diplomate ACVB and Gary Landsberg, DVM, Diplomate ACVB

How long can I expect to be housebreaking a puppy?MyPetED Image: Try these steps for successful puppy potty training.

If you follow these few basic steps, you may house train your puppy within a few days to a few weeks.

Don’t focus on where your puppy shouldn’t eliminate! Quickly teach him where to eliminate, with lots of reinforcing praise.       

What sites are best for potty training puppies?

  • Ideally, you’ll select a site with an easy and direct access to the outdoors; preferably a single location.
  • If you don’t have immediate access to the outdoors (e.g., high rise living) or you must leave your puppy longer than it can control itself, you might need to train your puppy to use an indoor litter area.
  • Paper training is another option. However, it may be more difficult to train your pet to eliminate outdoors afterward.

How do I potty train my puppy?MyPetED Image: Follow these steps to avoid puppy house training

  • Take your puppy to a selected elimination area within 30 minutes after sleeping, playing, feeding and drinking.
  • At first, let your puppy eliminate every 3-4 hours during the day. With each passing month, he can control himself a little longer.
  • When you take your puppy out, give verbal encouragement (e.g. 'Hurry up'). Some puppies learn to eliminate with this cue.
  • As soon as elimination is completed, immediately praise and pat him lavishly, saying, “Good boy!” and give treats if you wish.
  • If you take your puppy to the elimination site and he’s only interested in playing and investigating, take him indoors after about 10 minutes and strictly supervise him until you can try again, approximately each half hour.
  • Always accompany your puppy outdoors so you can be certain he has eliminated.
  • When indoors, watch your puppy for pre-elimination signs (circling, squatting, sneaking off, and heading to the door) and immediately take the dog to its elimination site, give the cue words, and reward the puppy when it eliminates.
  • When you can’t supervise, the puppy should be confined to a crate. See Crate Training a Dog . Before any lengthy confinement, make sure your puppy has eliminated and has had sufficient play and exercise.

Why does my puppy refuse to eliminate in my presence?

  • If your puppy is disciplined and punished for indoor elimination rather than reinforced for outdoor elimination, he may soon begin to fear eliminating when you’re present.
  • He may do better if you stand quietly off to the side while he eliminates outdoors. Be sure to follow the praise” approach.

What do I do if I find stool or urine in an inappropriate spot?

There’s no point in punishing or even pointing out the problem to the puppy. Put the puppy elsewhere, clean up the mess and vow to supervise the puppy more closely in the future.

How can I teach my puppy to signal that it needs to go out to eliminate?

  • By regularly taking your dog outdoors through the same door, to the same site, and rewarding him for p...
