How longdoes it take to potty train a puppy?
ok im really diligent and i just wanna know on average
If you can figure out how to make a puppy use the potty, I would love to hear it!
But seriously, it takes as long as you allow it to. If you are diligent about walking the puppy at the right times, praising her when she goes outside, using proper crate training techniques, and so forth, housebreaking shouldn't take very long at all. It may take the puppy some extra time before she can make it through the night, but that is more a function of her young age and small bladder than naughty behavior.
You should definitely look into crate training for your puppy. It will make the experience much less stressful and much more enjoyable for both of you.
There is really no answer to your question. Most dogs get the idea in3 to 6 weeks and are completely train in 2 to 3 months (maybe an accident)
But it all depends on YOU. You have to do the training correctly or the pup will never learn.
1) take the little guy out about every hour. Their bladders are small and need to be emptied often until they learn the rules
2) take them to the same spot in the yard and have a key word to going out to pee. At my house, we ask the dogs if they need to "check the back". That means pee without saying the work.
3) If you see the pup sniffing and circling and looking for a good place to pee in the house, grab and run for the back.
4) stay calm, no yelling, no pushing the nose in the spot. Just calmly take them OUT.
5) clean the spot well so they don't return to the smelly spot again Get some enzyme cleaner from the pet store
6) expect mistakes, This is an infant that you are training.
7) pet and praise for good behavior and ignore bad behavior. Any attention reward the behavior....so you can encourage bad behavior even if you are scolding.
Use some common sense. Be calm and patient. Use few words and mean the instructions when you give them.
If it is a puppy that is being trained the first time it is much easier than re-training an older dog. Dogs have accidents so don't get depressed if an accident or set back happens. When you see the accident say "wrong" and take the dog to the correct area. When the puppy goes in the right area you get excited and praise the puppy.
If you move or move furntire the dog could also have accidents. They will express if they don't like it or are worried about the changes. This happened to me and after a week my puppy adjusted to the "new" enviornment.
Make sure the puppy knows what to expect for their behavior. If you can be consistant it will go faster. It depends from puppy to puppy but, don't get angry if there are accidents that occur when they first are learning (or changes).
I have a Brittany, and I was told not to expect him to be fully house-trained for up to a year. However, he's 12 weeks (roughly 3 months) right now and really has the hang of it. It varies by dog, but I would guess 4-6 months is normal.
it depends on how you are trying to pups need to go just after feeding and when the wake up so get into the habit if its old enough to go out to take it out as soon as its fed or wakes up i used black rubbish sacks split open with paper on top . then i gradually moved it to the back door try and use a bit that's been peed on so it knows what it s for and be consistent take it out at the same time . dont ignore it once you have to keep at it
It depends on the owner and how educated they are on potty training a puppy properly!
That depends on the dog and how diligent you are with the training.
It took me one month to get it down but 1 month after that she still had mistakes. Now, 2 months later, she is fully housetrained.
Each puppy trains at their own pace. They get better at 12-weeks-old, but don't let your guard down that early. The bladder isn't grown until 6-months-old, and they are not fully potty trained until 1-year-old.
I use a crate* to potty train with, but only for potty training and then I break it down and store it. I put blankets and a small food and water dish in the crate. Dogs don't potty where they eat and sleep. When they are first little, I only expect them to hold their potty for 4 hours, and then 6 hours, then 8 hours and so on. So when they are first little, I set a timer or alarm clock to wake myself up at night to take them *out. I only allow my puppy in the bedroom* or the living room, only one room at a time. They have to graduate to more space. If I allow them to have full run of the house, it will overwhelm them. I take them out the same door each time. I tie a dinner bell to the door handle. Do not use a jingle bell as they could get their toe caught in it. So when they are little, I ring the bell for them, and then open the door to go *outside to potty. When they get bigger, I take their paw and whack the bell and open the door to go potty. Eventually getting to the place where the puppy will ring the bell and let me know when they need to go potty. Dogs want to please you, so it is your job to let them know what behaviors please you and what doesn't. So when my puppy goes potty, I give her a treat*, and clap, and make a fuss and praise her. So she learns that going potty outside makes me happy. If she has an accident, make a disgust sound like “tsst” and take her out right away. I never yell* or spank* my puppies. Take them out when they first wake up, after they eat or drink, before nap, finish romping, when their activities change, or when they are sniffing around. Some puppies go pee right away, but may not go poop until 10 minutes later, so wait for the poop. I have a little play time here, because sometimes I think they are done, and they are not. Puppies train at their own pace. While I may have a puppy that hasn't had an accident in several weeks, I don't let my guard down. I don't expect my puppies to be "fully potty trained" until one-year-old. If they have a setback, shake it off, and start over. I only have my puppies in the crate when I am not watching them. When I am sleeping, cooking, ironing, doing chores, basically when I am not watching her. All other times, she is out of the crate practicing being a "big girl." This is the time I train her how to behave in the house. So we are practicing "no barking", 'no biting", "no jumping", and "don't eat the furniture." I also have to practice "playing inside" so she doesn't knock over things. You must keep the puppy in sight when they are little because they don’t know the difference between newspaper and carpet, and you don’t want them sneaking off and getting into trouble. Some puppies can sleep through the night around 3-months-old, but their bladder is grown around 6-months-old.
*I use a CRATE to train with. It is the method I prefer, compared to other methods I have tried. I noticed that if they are in the crate, while I am doing chores, they are o.k., because the crate allows them to see me and be re-assured. The crate can also be a comfort when stored in the basement for dogs who live in areas where thunderstorms and tornados are an issue. . However, use the method that works best for you.....a laundry basket, a cardboard box, a woof-woof house, x-pen, child gates, whatever works for you.
*OUTSIDE, pee pad, litter box, whichever method you are using. When the puppy is first little, keep the pee pad, litter box near the food and water dish, so the puppy can eat and drink, and then go potty. You can move it away as they get older. The pee pad has a scent that smells and initiates potty. Sometimes a pee pad makes a sound that scares some puppies, so you might want to use a litter box if that happens. The pee pad allows a puppy to walk around, but a litter box keeps the puppy in one place.
*BEDROOMS, I use the bedroom and living room for training, because it works for me. Choose rooms that work for you, but watch for rooms that are damp, or drafty. While my puppies sleep in the bedroom during training, once they are trained, I let them sleep where they want to. They don't have to sleep in the bedroom forever.
*TREATS. While I use treats for training, you don't have to. I like Charlee Bears for training (a little cracker for a little mouth,) I use them for training, but once they are trained, I cut back on them.
*SOME PUPPIES will go potty in the same spot each time. Some puppies have to be told to go potty. A command like "go out" for pee, or "go finish" for poop, might work for you, keep saying “go finish” until the puppy poops. This is a good thing to train if you travel with your dogs. By using commands, the puppy won't get confused when you are visitin
Each one is differnet it all depends on you and your dog.
