While House Training Your Dog

When the thought or the discussion of getting a new puppy or dog arises another thought comes to mind and that is how to house train it.  House training is not all that hard but you will need to have a lot of time and much patience.

When you are setting out to house train your new dog it is best to house train it at a very young age.  It is possible to teach an old dog new tricks however it is a bit harder.  You need to cater to your dog.  The very first thing that you need to teach your dog is how to go outside to use the bathroom.  Do not try to teach your dog anything else but this, we it gets where to use it then you can move on.

You need to keep in mind that you will not see results overnight.  It may take several days and in many case many weeks to house train your dog.  Many dogs are very stubborn and they try to be the one in control you need to prevent your dog form thinking this way and you need to be the master.

Every person who is in the household needs to know what you expect of the dog.  If you are trying to teach your dog something and somebody else allows the dog to do something different then it can result in a confused dog.

Remember that when you are starting to house train your dog that you will not see results right away.  You must be consistent and persistent.  All of your efforts will eventually pay off and you will have a dog that knows where to use the bathroom and know who the master is.
