Potty Training Pets: A Guide to Success

Posted in Pets, Behavior & Training

Potty training is an essential part of owning a new pet. Dogs and cats are different creatures, and they require different approaches when it comes to potty training. This article provides a step-by-step guide to help you potty train your furry friend effectively.  1. Establish a Routine 

Pets thrive on routines. Establishing a routine helps them learn when and where to go potty. Develop a way that works for you and your pet. Take them for a walk or to their designated spot right after waking up, before meals, and before going to bed. 2. Select an Appropriate Potty Spot:

Your pet needs a specific spot to go potty. Choose an appropriate place outside for your dog to relieve themselves. This spot should be easily accessible and away from your home and common areas. Place kitty litter boxes inside your home where the cat can easily find and use them. 

3. Positive Reinforcement 

Rewarding your pet for going potty correctly goes a long way. Use verbal praise, treats, or toys as positive reinforcement. The more your pet associates proper potty behavior with positive reinforcement, the more likely they will repeat it.

4. Consistency

Pets learn through consistency and repetition. Be consistent with your training. Establishing a routine and keeping them to it for several weeks will help them learn what is expected of them and when to go potty.

5. Patience

Potty training takes time. Be patient with your pet. Do not scold them for making mistakes. Instead, redirect them to their potty spot and reward them when they get it right.

6. Clean Up Accidents 

Mistakes are normal during potty training. Clean up accidents appropriately and thoroughly. The scent of liveremains after cleaning which might lure your pet to the place later. Go for thorough cleaning options like vinegar or enzyme-neutralizing cleaners to remove the scent.

In conclusion, potty training is essential for your pet and will lead to a happier, healthier relationship between you and your pet. By establishing a routine, selecting the appropriate potty spot, using positive reinforcement, being consistent, being patient, and cleaning up after accidents, you are setting your furry friend up for success.
