If you train your new puppy correctly and consistently, potty or toilet training can be a relatively pain-free process for both parties. Whichever method you use, and I'll list the main effective ones below, the main thing of importance is being consistent in the commands and directions you give to your puppy when training. After all, training is centrally about effective communication, i.e. making your dog aware of what you want them to do. So, here are the main ways of toilet training a puppy: Getting a Crate One of the ways that I helped the process of toilet training my Westie was by getting him a crate. This might only be applicable to smaller breeds of dogs like Terriers, but can actually be very effective. Dogs do not want to go to the bathroom in the place they sleep, and will only do so if they have an accident (which is common with puppies as they do have weaker bladders). Paper training This essentially involves laying out paper across the room, then steadily removing it once your puppy has found their 'usual spot'. Once this happens, you can steadily move the paper closer and closer to the door, eventually moving it outside. Always reward your dog to ensure expedience in learning, and never scold or punish them if they have a mistake - this will inevitably have the counterproductive effect of making them not want to urinate in front of you. Take them out to the garden It takes a little bit of patience initially, but again you'll be surprised at how quickly your puppy realises that they need to go to the toilet outside when you do this. Since dogs usually need to go to the bathroom within half an hour to forty minutes of every meal, this is the prime time to accompany them when they go outside. Once they've done their business, confirm that this was a good place to pee by giving them a physical or verbal reward.
