Every puppy leaves a little present where they’re not supposed to – it’s all part of the package. But never fear – we can help you train your shameless Shih Tzu to go in the right spot from the start, before the doo-doo does your head in.
First, walk your pup over to the place where you’d like him to ‘toilet’. Let him sniff around, and wait for him to do his business. When he does, give him a praise, a pat, and a puppy treat. Best of all, the odour he’s left behind will remind him to toilet there next time.
To keep your carpet and cashmere socks happy, take your little pooper to their ‘toilet’ often. Puppies have very poor bladder control and need to go every few hours. Sniffing and circling are your Schnauzer’s smoke signals for ‘I gotta go!’ So, keep an eye out for them.
Knowing when it’s tinkle time is easy. Take your Whippet to the W.C.:
- After he wakes in the morning
- After he’s been left alone
- After he’s had a nap
- Before playing, training, and going to bed
- After meals
It also helps to do Fido’s last meal of the day several hours before you tuck him in to his kennel or other nighttime nook. Keeping feeds and exercise on-schedule will help your potty trainer develop a regular timetable for toileting. Weee!
Training pad pointers.
Whether leaving your little watchdog ‘in charge’ while at work, or trying to crate him to the vet, your wee one will likely…wee, from time to time. Or you may even have an older dog who can’t hold it in, sometimes. No worries, training pads can lick those problems, spot-on.
Yours Droolly Training Pads are not only leak-proof, but can absorb wetness in just 31 seconds (cue nice, dry flooring, rejoicing in background). Even better, Yours Droolly features an antibacterial range that will keep the urine odour out, and freshness in. Smell good to you?
How rad is this pad?
So, you know Yours Droolly training pads inside and out (but don’t say “out” too loud – you know how worked up Rover gets). Now, which ones to buy?
If it’s first-time puppy poo-poo training, or even if you’re traveling with your Irish-Jet-Setters, Yours Droolly trial packs will do the trick. Or, if you do accidentally mutter, “out,” and Rover lets his excitement leak, our bulk packs will make sure you’re always prepared. Hot dog!
