Labrador Puppies are as cute as they come. I mean all dogs are pretty adorable in their first few months, but a Labrador puppy may take the prize. With big floppy ears and tiny little bodies, they can put a smile on even the coldest of customers.
You’ve all loved having your little Lab in the house. He spends his time curled up on your lap while you watch TV or itching to dive into his next meal. However, it hasn’t all been without problems. In particular, your Labrador puppy hasn’t figured out where he can and can’t go to the toilet. As a result, your floors and furniture are frequently sprayed in a not so pleasant substance.
Training your pup to use the toilet, however, would relieve these concerns. In fact, no longer would you have to carefully walk downstairs in the morning in fear you’ll put your foot in something unsavory. It also means less time cleaning and more time cuddling your pup.
Training your Puppy to use the toilet is, of course, not the easiest place to teach them to do their business. However, that does not mean it isn’t possible. In fact, with careful training and the right motivator, they could be using the toilet more accurately than your teenage sons. Training will consist of working their way up from a tub outside to the toilet. You will need to use positive reinforcements throughout.
Because your Lab is just a puppy, he should be a fast learner. This means you could see results in just a week or two. Having said that, if your Labrador puppy isn’t so good at following instructions, then you may need a number of weeks before you see consistent results. Get training right and your puppy will be the talk of the town-- and, less bacteria will be spread around the house from accidents.
Before you start training, you will need to get your hands on a few bits. You will need a small tub or basin, to begin with. A step and a clicker may be needed and poo bags and some antibacterial spray will also be required.
Stock up on mouth-watering treats or break the pup's favorite food into small pieces. You will need to set aside several minutes each day, throughout the day, for training.
Once you have all that, just bring enthusiasm and a can-do attitude, then work can begin!
