What's the best way to house train/ potty train a new puppy? (7 weeks old)?
A wire kennel...definately! My wife worked at a veterinarian office, plus we have raised 3 GREAT dogs of our own!
your other option is to reward them with treats for a great job. Sometimes training pads are effective as well.
It depends much on the breed. We have had good luck using a potty pad and some cheese. Once the pup makes the connection between getting the cheese, some praise, and the potty pad. They will work it. You just have to come through with the praise and the cheese to keep it going. Once you have it established, they will continue to use the pad but you still have to come up with the other items occasionally. Thanks. WB
I find that its good to learn the pup's routine i.e. first thing in the morning, an hour after food, after 'wild play' etc . . .
The make sure it is outside at these times, when the pup goes outside reward it. Don’t chastise when it is indoors or it will get secretive and you will find poo in your slippers!
I have a 10 week old Lab.
