One of the first things any new puppy owner has to face is that their first job as a new puppy owner is to teach your pooch not to go potty in the house--better known as potty training. Your little Rottie is smart, quick to learn, and loves to please you. This is the perfect combination for anyone who is trying to potty train their pup. One of the biggest reasons for unsuccessful potty training is that the owner has not learned how to show their pup what is expected of him right from the start. One of the other major players in the game is not having enough time to properly train your pup. It will take time and consistent practice in order to succeed with potty training your Rottweiler puppy.
Today's assignment, should you decide to accept it, is to take your new Rottie pup and train him that the only place he is permitted to go potty is outside in the yard. At the same time, you will be teaching him to hold his bladder and bowels for longer periods of time and that going potty in the house is never an acceptable form of behavior. Bear in mind that you should pick one spot in your yard for your pup to use as his potty. This will help with the whole training process and keep the rest of your yard much cleaner.
Keep in mind that the best time to potty train your Rottie pup is from the moment you get out of the car with him on his first day home. Start out by taking him to the spot in your yard you have designated as his personal potty area the moment you bring him home, even before you take him inside for the first time. This helps set the stage for future potty training.
To complete training, you will need:
Along with all of this, you are also going to need a large supply of patience and, of course, the time to spend taking your pup outside until he gets the idea and starts going potty outside where he should and not inside the house.
