Puppy Litter Training

We've all heard about litter training a cat, however you may not know that puppy litter training is possible so that your little pup understands where to go whenever he has to relieve himself.

This will most likely not work on an older dog, but it is possible with a puppy. Smaller breed dogs will do wonderfully well with this particular approach to potty training, however if the breed of dog is likely to be large, you might not want to use this method. Larger dogs could fill the litter box up at one time and could miss the entire box.

You should keep a few things in mind if you decide to start puppy litter training. You will need to have contact with your dog all the time and you should take the puppy to the litter box each time he wakes, eats, drinks or exercises.

The litter box will replace the requirement to take your puppy outside. Consequently, you have to stick to the standard puppy training tips. Puppy litter training doesn't need to be difficult, but you will have to set the box up properly.

From the Pros

Potty training a puppy by using a litter box will need a large sized litter box that the puppy can easily get in and out of. You should place plastic material down on the ground approximately two inches wider than the litter box in the event of an accidental miss.

You might have to keep one spot of pee in the litter box so the puppy smells it and understands that this is where he belongs. It's necessary that you keep the box clean but, for a puppy, you need to keep a little urine spot in the box until he is accustomed to using the litter box.

You can use cat litter in the litter box, which will help with the odor far more than shredded paper will. Scoopable kitty litter works perfectly, but you need to scoop it two or three times a day. You will likely use more cat litter than you would with a cat. Housetraining puppies can be very simple if you opt for this method.

If you live in a condo or don't have a backyard for the puppy to go, this can be an ideal solution.

Training an older smaller dog to use the litter box will require more time. You will need to be persistent about putting them in the litter box anytime you believe that they ought to go outside.

If the dog asks to go outside, you should then put the dog in the litter box. Again using the litter box for a well-trained housedog ought to be the last resort and only if you live in a house with no backyard.

Older dogs are not as easy to change if they have already been permitted to go potty inside your home, however with time and determination, you can break them of bad behavior and get them to make use of the litter box.

You will have to put the litter box in a location that is easy for the puppy to reach at all times. Make certain it is out of the way from foot traffic and company.
