Most people use the wrong methods due to both ignorance and laziness.
And it can be very easy to get confused with all the contradicting advice out there.
There are so many "how to train dogs" guides that it can be very difficult to know where to begin.
I'll make it easy on you--here are 4 "surefire" ways to get results in 7 days or less.
TIP #1) Let them out at a consistent time This is the most important point of all.
What are the best times? As soon as they get up...
20 minutes after they are done eating...
and just prior to going to sleep.
Obviously this means you will need to feed them at the same time too-it takes discipline but I guarantee the results will be worth it.
TIP #2) Give the same command every time I recommend saying "let's go potty!" simple but effective.
TIP #3) Use the same place This way they will learn to associate that area with going to the bathroom.
After they have gone, you want to lavishly praise them to let them know they've done something good.
TIP #4) Be PATIENT Do NOT go nuts if and when they go in the house at first-it's inevitable.
But soon it will wear off.
The bottom line...
Back to the original question-what's the best method for potty training my dog? The answer? Consistency.
This is all very common sense stuff...
but I guarantee if you are consistent (something most people are not due to laziness) you will get fast results.
