Puppy house training, which includes litter
training, is one of the first things we all must do with
our new pets. That is, unless we are lucky enough to get
a pet that has already been housebroken! Along with housebreaking
puppies some people must also litter train their new dogs.
With most families working during the day
the puppy will probably be left alone for hours at a time.
When we talk about litter training we mean training our
puppy to use paper to do their business, or better yet,
to use special dog papers to potty on when we are absent.
If the proper procedures are followed this
part of housebreaking your pet is fairly easy to do. It
will also substanially speed up the total puppy house
training job. If you are keeping your puppy confined to
a specified area during the day, which we strongly suggest,
then the "den" effect will work in your favor. You see
- dogs naturally have an instinct to keep their dens clean
and do their buisness elsewhere - outside their den, or
The best way to do this type of litter training
is to use specially treated litter training papers. These
can be found at any good dog supply store. We have tried
lots of them from the grocery store and places like Wal-Mart
and Pet Smart. Unfortunately these cheaper products just
don't work nearly as well as the better products you can
find from the Pet Specialty stores. The best ones we have
found are from Pet Care Central. The pads they carry are
absolutely great for house breaking puppies, the indoor,
or stay at home dogs, the senior dogs, and the incontinent
or ailing dogs. These pads feature an extra thick top
layer that's 50% thicker than other pads, like those cheap
ones you find at the grocery store or Wal-Mart.
They will resist scratches and tears three
times greater than those "cheap" pads too. These particular
pads even have built-in "Dispose-Ties" that make transporting
the soiled pads to the garbage easy and hassle free -
without getting the mess on your hands or clothing - which
is a feature that those cheap pads don't have. Another
big advantage is that these pads have the scent of fresh
cut, natural grass to teach your pet to "go" outside even
faster, while the embedded pheromones quickly attract
dogs to the pads. Just type "Dog House breaking Pads",
in the search box, and it will take you right to the page
where they are listed.
Since these pads have special phremones
embedded in them it will attract and encourage your pet
to use them easier. These phremones also have the scent
of fresh grass which trains your dog to use the grass
when you do take them outside.
If you follow these tips you AND your dog
will be happier and your puppy house training will go
much, much faster. You can take my word for it. My wife
and I have been there and done that. No we don't have
the T-Shirt to prove it but we
