House Training a Dog
We get numerous calls every week from dog owners who are struggling to house train their dogs. This isn’t only a problem for puppies, we often get calls from dog owners who have dogs up to and well over a year of age. This is a very frustrating problem and causes a great deal of stress in the home. The longer the problem goes on the more difficult it can be to correct. That being the case we’ve successfully house trained dogs from 8 weeks of age to 8 years of age using the exact same program but custom-tailored to each individual dog.
House training a dog is different for every dog but there is a general formula that we use to train every dog. This method is incredible. The majority of dog owners report that their dogs stop having ‘accidents’ in the home with a day or so of implementing this training program. Even dogs that have been ‘going in the house’ for years can quickly be cured of this issue with the right formula.
The method is simple to understand but needs consistency to work perfectly. In a nut-shell my formula is the following:
- Preventing the accidents from happening- This deals with learning how to supervise your dog the right way both when you are home and when you aren’t.
- Correcting the accidents properly when they do happen- There is a right way and a wrong way, as well as right timing and wrong timing, for correcting accidents when they happen in the house.
- Encouraging your dog properly to go to the bathroom outside- This is the easiest part of the program but can also be easy to overlook.
- Adjusting the dog’s routine for success- There are certain ways that you want to program your dog’s food, water, and bathroom breaks to make your house training process a whole lot more easy for you and your dog.
It is not uncommon for us to see accidents stop within a day with our training methods. How would that feel if, by tomorrow, you could be free of accidents and start living in a cleaner home?
