Toilet Training Your Puppy Made Simple

Updated: Apr 3

Toilet Training your puppy can be simple if you are consistent and follow these basic steps…

Step 1) At first you will need to take your puppy out regularly (about every 2 hours).

Step 2) When your puppy relieves itself say your command like ‘Good toilet’.

Step 3) Praise your puppy as it is relieving itself, or immediately after it goes if praise whilst it is going distracts your pup too much, and it doesn't finish.

Step 4) Once you have repeated this process over and over, your pup will begin to associate the words of praise 'Good Toilet' with going to the toilet.

Then you can start commanding the puppy to go by taking it to the area you want it to go and saying 'Go Toilet'. If your pup is confused and doesn't understand what you are asking, don't repeat the command but go back to repeating steps 1 through to 3 until your pup has the understanding. All pups are unique and take varying lengths of time to grasp such commands.

Praising and rewarding your puppy after following your command reaffirms its association with the command. As shown in this video. As your puppy grows and matures, it will learn to hold on longer before needing to be take out to go to the toilet.
