House training can be a very frustrating time for the dog as well as the owner. We all know, that accidents are inevitable, especially with a puppy, but it is important to be patient and consistent, so your dog can be successful.
When I take my dog out, I set a timer on my watch for 3-5 minutes. If my dog actually goes potty in the spot where I want her to go, I will make a very big memory for the dog. How do I make memories for the dog? Well, I could play, I could also feed the dog some food and I could praise or pet my dog. I like to feed her something very tasty, as I’m petting her and talking to her. Those three things together take 10-30 seconds. This shows her how happy I am that she used the restroom where I want her to.
