How do i train my older dog to use a pee pad?
Training a puppy or dog to use a papered area in your home is accomplished in much the same way as Training her to go outside.
Confine your puppy or dog for a period of time, and then take her on a leash to the paper or pads.
Wait until she goes. Praise and reward her with treats for going in the right place.
Establish a routine
- Take your puppy outside frequently—at least every two hours—and immediately after they wake up, during and after playing, and after eating or drinking.
- Pick a bathroom spot outside, and always take your puppy (on a leash) to that spot…
- Reward your puppy every time they eliminate outdoors.
When you start to house train, follow these steps:
- Keep the puppy on a regular feeding schedule and take away his food between meals.
- Take puppy out to eliminate first thing in the morning and then once every 30 minutes to an hour.
- Take puppy to the same spot each time to do his business.
How to Train a Puppy to Pee Outside
- Step 1: Teach your puppy the potty cue. Have your puppy sit by the back door…
- Step 2: Determine a set potty area. Put your puppy on a leash and walk them out to the part of the yard you want your dog to relieve themselves at…
- Step 3: Use a crate when you're not home.
Potty pad training your dog
- Restrict Fluffy's access inside the house. Keep her on leash with you, in a free-standing pen on an easy-to-clean floor (while supervised), or in a properly-sized kennel…
- No punishment…
- Set up her “alone” room…
- Feed Fluffy on a schedule…
- Take her to her pad regularly and wait for her to go.
- First, ask your dog to “Sit.”
- Then open the palm of your hand in front of you, and say “Stay.”
- Take a few steps back…
- Gradually increase the number of steps you take before giving the treat .
- Always reward your pup for staying put — even if it's just for a few seconds.
