Man’s best friend can bring a great deal of joy and affection to anyone who loves animal life. But there are also not-so-pleasant aspects of having a young dog, such as the instances that he does not quite make it outside before he does his business routine.

Oftentimes, it is simply a matter of the pets owner forgetting letting the dog out the door. It also could be that it is because the dog is too young and doesn’t know any better. There is one tried and true way to potty train a puppy that works better than most other methods. Piddle pads or dog training pads are available in with antibacterial action that decrease odors with sealed edges and leak proof backing offer better protection These pads are perfect for housetraining puppies, when leaving small dogs for longer periods of time or for around litter boxes and can be found at discount pet supplies.

Many found an effective way to train a puppy was to smack him with a newspaper every time he made a mess inside and then to put him outdoors. This is negative reinforcement theory at work for potty training.

The only problem with a negative reinforcement method is that it will likely make your feel terrible swatting your puppy.  You may fell like an absolute knuckle head. Another method that absolutely works is that taking the dog out at the same time, three times a day. It works because the dog would get used to going outside and would do its business out there. That is definitely a great idea, but the problem there is that life gets in the way. For stay at home moms it works since they have all day at their disposal.

Some try laying newspapers on the floor and gradually moving them closer to the door each day. Eventually, the dog will go all the way to the back door and then you can just let him out.

By staying disciplined in training you dog you’ll find that a little patience and a lot of newspaper works great. It may take a few days, but there is no negative reinforcement involved, and you do not have to worry about following a tight dog walking schedule. There are even special potty strips and patches available on pet supply stores for those that need their dog to go potty indoors.
