Toilet Training Your Puppy  

Toilet Training Your Puppy 
How long should it take you puppy to become toilet trained? 
Some puppies take a little longer than others to learn not to toilet in the house. The main thing is to be persistent and consistent. If there are lots of people in the house training your puppy it will be worthwhile developing a plan of action for everyone in the house to refer to. This way, everyone trains your puppy the same. 
What is the best way to toilet train your puppy? 
There are several different ways to toilet train your puppy. We recommend taking your puppy outside where you would like them to toilet 10 minutes after waking up, eating or playing to give them opportunity to toilet. When they toilet outside, give them lots of praise, love and attention to reinforce that they have done the right thing. If you catch them toileting in the house pick them up and put them outside. You should never tell them off for toileting in the house. 
 
If you want to discuss toilet training further, you can register your puppy online or you can contact us to speak to one of our friendly Ryedale Vets healthcare experts. 
  
Should we tell puppies off for toileting in the house? 
Never! Telling them off for toileting in the house does not tell them where you want them to toilet. It will only make them scared to toilet near you. So, you are better off making the training process a positive experience and only rewarding good behaviour.
