Housetraining – Scheduling is Key

  • Feed your dog on a regular schedule time,
  • Always feed within a half hour of the time

Control Water Intake

  • Keep a schedule for water, however, you should design a schedule that fits you
  • Remove the water dish after the first feeding in the morning
  • After the night feeding, leave water dish for two hours, then take it up
  • Before your last walk for the night, put the water dish down about an hour before
  • Then walk your dog 45 minutes after he has had water. There will might be days where that might be an exception for water.

Find The Dogs Schedule – then gently move it to your schedule

  • Start by taking the dog out every two hours for two days, if he goes every two hours,
  • Then take him out every three hours, for two days,
  • Until you reach the time frame you need – every six hours—eight hours etc

  • This is how wild dogs let other dogs know that this territory is taken and for dogs not in the pack to go elsewhere.
  • If your dog has an accident in the house, spray the area with 3 parts vinegar and 1 part water,
  • Brush with a soft brush,
  • Put a towel on top to absorb the liquid,
  • Then take it outside where you want him to go,
  • Take it out of the bag and put it on the ground,
  • Praise your dog when he goes outside.
