July 24, 2009, Newsletter Issue #297: Proactive Housetraining

Tip of the Week

An important part of housebreaking a puppy is to start having a routine for taking her outside to eliminate. Take your puppy outside to eliminate first thing in the morning, after meals, before bedtime, and in the middle of the night if necessary. Give her time to do her business and avoid all interaction until she does so. Then praise her for eliminating. You can expect some accidents in the beginning. Just address them right at the time that it takes place with a firm, "No!" and then show your puppy where to eliminate.
