Potty-training is one of the most challenging aspects of having a dog. It’s also one of the most common reasons people abandon their dogs at shelters. But it really doesn’t have to be so complicated.
Every dog can be fully potty-trained.
Every owner has the capacity to do it.
Dogs do not use their pee and poop for spite or revenge. They aren’t stubborn about it. They really don’t care where their droppings go, as long as you’re happy.
It’s just a matter of being attentive, and knowing where each and every pee and poop goes, until the dog is ready to be trusted on his own. Your instructions need to be consistent, clear, and most of all, patient.
Every pee and poop that is dropped outside is a step forward, while every pee and poop dropped indoors is five steps back. That’s why you need to set your dog up for success from the very beginning, and praise lavishly. Every successful poop and pee is a reason to celebrate, an achievement you’ve worked towards together.
