First make sure he does not have any health problems. Then try to understand when he has his accidents – 30 minutes after eating, while he is playing, right after he gets up (or is released from his crate), when greeting people, etc. Once you can identify when he has problems, you can use our customized Dog Potty Training Course to find and try the correct solutions to the problem.
Does your dog only mess when you leave him alone? Does he only do it in a certain room of the house? Does he mark your furniture? Learn what causes these behaviors and how to work with your puppy or adult dog to solve the problem.
If you work and must leave your dog at home for long hours, you need to learn how to effectively crate train your dog as well as how to successfully potty train him so that he always eliminates in the appropriate place at the appropriate times.
Potty training, like all other types of dog training, involves positive reinforcement. Learn how to deal with accidents appropriately without hitting your dog or “making a big deal” out of it.
Some breeds are easy to house train as they don’t like for their living quarters to be messy or smelly or they really like to please their owners. Other breeds are more difficult to housebreak. Others may take a special type of housebreaking. However, with patience and persistence, your dog can be housetrained.
