How To Potty Train A Puppy Fast & Easy
You took your new puppy outdoors to show him where to go potty when you first brought him inside. He played and sniffed, but he didn’t use the restroom. He squats and pees as soon as you take him inside. Sounds familiar to you? Hello from the puppy stage!
Potty accidents are unavoidable when adopting a puppy, so potty training her fast should be one of your primary objectives.
If you have an older dog who is having accidents, ensure your dog is healthy before assuming he is not potty trained.
Potty training is a lot of work and patience, but following the four steps outlined here is easy.
If you want to potty train a puppy quickly, you’ll need a leash, crate, treats, consistency, and a ton of patience. Take your puppy outside once an hour. Put him on a leash or a box to limit his freedom inside. Praise him and give him treats each time he uses the bathroom outside. Please pay attention to his body language signals when your puppy has to go potty. Potty training your puppy won’t take long if you are consistent.
4 Easy Steps for Quick Puppy Potty Training
Several years ago, at the age of 12 weeks, we fostered two puppies simultaneously.
This past spring, we added a border collie puppy to our pack. He was barely eight weeks old when we brought him home. Potty training an 8-week-old puppy will be easy if you follow the four steps I’ve listed below.
We have adopted several dogs over the years; some are only 4-6 months old, and some, for various reasons, are still not potty trained. I’ve taught young, seasoned, and grown dogs to use the bathroom. My top priority is always potty training my dogs!
1. Keep your puppy on a leash until he is entirely potty trained.
If you do this, your puppy won’t be as inclined to wander off and have an accident in another room. Use a crate if you can’t keep a tight check on him. Whether or not a new dog has been potty trained, I usually suggest confining it to a small area of your house.
Limit your puppy’s access to your house until he has completed all his training. It will also help with chewing and other trouble. Would you ever leave a baby or young child alone in your house?
2. Take your puppy outside every hour or so.
Puppies’ short bladders make it difficult for them to hold anything for very long. The number of months your puppy has been around being a good way to estimate his endurance. He should be able to go three hours without having an account, for example, if he is three months old. Four hours, four months
When he is six months old, he ought to be able to hold out for six hours. Even though he felt compelled to leave the house every ten minutes at times!
Take him outside a lot! Before telling him to “potty,” take him outside without interruptions or playing.
Giving him verbal instructions can benefit him as he learns what you want from him. He’ll play for you after he uses the bathroom as his reward for doing as you asked.
This explains why adopting a puppy during the spring and summer is so common. Even though it’s more challenging in the winter, teaching your puppy that the outside is the only place he can relieve himself is crucial. Keep him from using the bathroom inside the house.
Please take note of the time you feed him, and then take him outside 10 to 20 minutes later.
Suppose you live in a home or apartment where it’s easy to take your dog outside immediately. In that case, I suggest giving a natural indoor puppy potty a try.
3. Rewards, Rewards, and More Rewards
When potty training a youngster, rewards and lots of praise are best. As soon as your puppy squats to pee or poop, say “excellent boy,” being careful not to get overly excited and make him stop.
Reward him as soon as he’s completed and start to become highly excited. He will quickly figure out that going outside to urinate or defecate earns him praise and treats.
4. Schedule routine. Consistency Additionally, a ton of patience
Be very patient and consistent. Your young puppy will inevitably have a potty accident. As a result, do not scold or punish him for it. Like newborns, puppies do not arrive potty trained. As a result, you must teach him.
Accidents are bound to happen.
If you notice your puppy searching the house for a spot to discharge himself or even beginning to squat, firmly tell him NO. Take him outdoors and ask him to go to the bathroom now.
If your puppy accidentally evaded your watch and had an earlier accident in the house, bring it to the mess and sternly tell it NO. If you missed him in the act, you could say to him you don’t like it and that it’s okay to poop or pee inside; just don’t hit or punish him.
Important: There’s always a danger that your puppy will become ill or have other health issues that prevent them from holding it. If you have any concerns, talk to your veterinarian to address any health issues.
If you follow these steps, your puppy will be potty trained quickly! Since every puppy is different, I can’t guarantee that yours will be introduced to using the restroom in just three days. But if you stay positive and consistent, the potty-training phase will be done before you realize it. Oh, what a relief.
How to get dog poop out of the carpet.
I’m sorry, but your puppy will eventually urinate on your carpet; the question is not IF it will, but WHEN. And after he pees on your floor, you HAVE to clean it as fast as possible.
Eliminating the smell is essential to any dog’s house training regimen. Think about it A dog’s sense of smell can be up to 100,000 times higher than a person’s.
Many options are available for getting rid of urine stains and smells. Either make your all-natural mixture or buy an enzyme cleanser that has already been made.
Before using any of these techniques, I implore you to test them on a small carpet area. I once used the baking soda/vinegar method on a carpet that was cream in colour, and it bleached the stain! Thank goodness it was in the basement.
If you suspect your dog has urinated in places you are unaware of, I suggest investing in a UV lamp to find all the concealed spots.
It is possible to erase dog poop stains with vinegar and water.
- To soak moisture, blot everything damp with paper towels or a white cloth. Don’t use urine to clean the carpet. Blot! You don’t want to add more urine to the carpet’s fibres.
2. Combine 50% vinegar and 50% water in a mixing bowl.
3. Use water or vinegar to rinse the urine stain. Scrub using a white rag. The vinegar will partially neutralize the ammonia in the urine.
4. Blot the urine stain with a fresh cloth or paper towel. Usually, I step carefully on it.
5. Liberally sprinkle baking soda over the stained area when the carpet has completely dried.
6. Vacuum the area after it has dried.

Poop odours can be eliminated using baking soda.
Baking soda works by absorbing both moisture and odour. Spread a lot of baking soda over the carpet and work it into the fibres. The following morning, wait to vacuum it. It must be done repeatedly.
