What To Expect When House TrainingUnless you can monitor your puppy 24 hours a day, don't expect the house training process to be completed until your puppy is at least 6 months old. It's normal for a young puppy to be a little 'input-output' machine. Since puppies are growing and developing rapidly at this stage, they eat more food, burn up more energy and seem to need to eliminate constantly! They also have not yet developed bowel and bladder control, so they can't 'hold it' as long as adult dogs.
WHEN WEE WEE PAD TRAINING THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO REMEMBER IS YOU PUPPY IS GOING TO NEED MANY PADS IN EVERY AREA HE OR SHE STAYS IN. DON’T EXPECT YOUR PUPPY TO NOW THAT YOU HAVE ONE PAD DOWN IN THE BATHROOM. AS YOU SEE YOUR PUPPY PICKS FAVORITE PLACES TO GO YOU CAN TAKE THE WEE WEE PADS OF SLOWLY.
House Training When You Are NOT HomeConfine your puppy to a small, 'puppy-proofed' room and paper the entire floor. Put his bed, toys and food/water bowls there. At first there will be no rhyme or reason to where your pup eliminates. He will go every where and any where. He will also probably play with the papers, chew on them, and drag them around his little den. Most puppies do this and you just have to live with it. Don't get upset; just accept it as life with a young puppy. The important thing is that when you get home, clean up the mess and lay down fresh papers.
Passive House Training or Paper TrainingWhile your puppy is confined, he is developing a habit of eliminating on paper because no matter where he goes, it will be on paper. As time goes on, he will start to show a preferred place to do his business. When this place is well established and the rest of the papers remain clean all day, then gradually reduce the area that is papered. Start removing the paper that is furthest away from his chosen location. Eventually you will only need to leave a few sheets down in that area only. If he ever misses the paper, then you've reduced the area too soon. Go back to papering a larger area or even the entire room. Once your puppy is reliably going only on the papers you've left, then you can slowly and gradually move his papers to a location of your choice. Move the papers only an inch a day. If puppy misses the paper again, then you're moving too fast. Go back a few steps and start over. Don't be discouraged if your puppy seems to be making remarkable progress and then suddenly you have to return to papering the entire room. This is normal. There will always be minor set-backs. If you stick with this procedure, your puppy will be paper trained.
House Training When You When you are home but can't attend to your puppy, follow the same procedures described above. However, the more time you spend with your puppy, the quicker he will be house trained. Your objective is to take your puppy to his toilet area every time he needs to eliminate. This should be about once every 45 minutes; just after a play session; just after eating or drinking; and just upon waking. When he does eliminate in his toilet area, praise and reward him profusely and enthusiastically! Don't use any type of reprimand or punishment for mistakes or accidents. Your puppy is too young to understand and it can set the house training process back drastically. Don't allow your puppy freedom outside of his room unless you know absolutely for sure that his bladder and bowels are completely empty. When you do let him out, don't let him out of your sight. It is a good idea to have him on leash when he is exploring your home. He can't get into trouble if you are attached to the other end of the leash. Every 30 minutes return your pup to his toilet area. As your puppy becomes more reliable about using his toilet area and his bowel and bladder control develops, he can begin to spend more time outside his room with you in the rest of your home. Begin by giving him access to one room at a time. Let him eat, sleep and play in this room but only when he can be supervised. When you cannot supervise him, put him back in his room.
Active House TrainingThe most important thing you can do to make house training happen as quickly as possible is to reward and praise your puppy every time he goes in the right place. The more times he is rewarded, the quicker he will learn. Therefore it's important that you spend as much time as possible with your pup and give him regular and frequent access to his toilet area.
The Key to Successful House TrainingConsistency and Patience. Never scold or punish your puppy for mistakes and accidents. The older your pup gets, the more he will be able to control his bladder and bowels. Eventually your pup will have enough control that he will be able to "hold it" for longer and longer periods of time. Let your puppy do this on his own time. When training is rushed, problems usually develop. Don't forget, most puppies are not reliably house trained until they are at least 6 months old.

Puppy Proofing Your HomePuppies are curious about the world they live in. They can get into trouble you’d never dream they could find. It’s your responsibility to keep them and your belongings safe. Items that should be out of reach of your puppy include. Clothes - Magazines- Remotes- Kids Toys- Antifreeze- Pesticides- Cleaning agents- Medications- Chocolate, Grapes, Rasins, Macadamia Nuts, Onions Mushrooms, Bones- Pins needles thread nails- Rope fishing line and tackle- Trash cans- House Plants- Burning candles- Electrical Cords Secure bookshelves, lamps and anything else that can be knocked over. Check your fencing to make sure your puppy cannot jump over, climb over, squeeze through, claw through, chew through, dig under or get hung up in it. Never tie him where he can climb over a fence and hang himself. Never allow your puppy near the swimming pool unsupervised.
Health Immunizations- Puppies have little natural immunity to diseases so they can be deadly for them. All puppies aged 6 weeks and avobe need a series of vaccines including a rabies shot. Puppies should be on a regular worming program against hookworm, roundworm, whipworm, and tape worms. At the age of 4 months puppies should beon a regular heartworm program. Your puppy will also need a regular flea and tick prevenative. Feeding is very important for your puppy. Young puppies should have food available at all times. Change your puppys water at least twice a day. Never change your puppys food until you have no doubts you puppy has a good appatite and is eating very well then only add new food to his existing food slowly over a long period of time so your puppy can adjust well to the new food.
Crying is normal, Comfort your puppy when he needs it. Don’t just let him cry. Can you imagine being someplace unknown and your mom and brothers and sisters that you just snuggled with are now gone? Your puppy needs you and crying is the only way he has of telling your that. At first, your puppy may miss his mother, littermates, or previous home. Remember he’s in a strange place and no one speaks his language. Give him attention but respect his need to explore and to rest. Allow him to sleep as near you as possible. Stuffed toys and a radio playing softly may soothe his loneliness.Socialization is important toward shaping a happy and well-behaved pet. Include him in your life. Give him a few days to settle in and then expose him to happy people, places, and things. Plan to begin puppy obedience classes when he’s several months old.Your dog depends on you for his every need but in return, he will furnish you with an endless supply of love and devotion.
