I'm getting a Puggle puppy soon, but my mom wants it to go potty in one part of the yard, so its easier to cut grass, and avoid running over it, etc.I don't know how to train it, do i just walk him to the same spot everytime he has " to go"?
I was thinking that if your dog goes potty everywhere and you want it to go in one part of the yard, that maybe if you just put it all in one spot, and showed your dog, maybe it would go in that part of the yard.
I didn't really have time to train him to go in one spot because I just finished summer schoo. I'll try your suggestion though, I'm planning to remodel my backyard and I don't want him to go everywwhere. Thanks.
I've always had previous dogs that went in one spot of the yard, and that's what I am training my new puppy to do as well. I've always successfully done it by keeping it consistent. Every time you take the puppy out to go potty, take him to that spot.Then after a while he'll get use to going potty in that spot.
I have read that if you consistantly take them to the same part of the yard, and repeat the same statement (ex: "go potty") they will eventually know that's where they have to go. Whenever they go potty in the spot you want them to, praise them and give a treat. It's basically the same as training them to go outside, but you lead them to a specific spot. Unfortunately I thought of doing this too late, so my bulldogs poo wherever they like* Sometimes I think my entire yard is poo.
2 things: petsmart sells pee stakes, this little yellow oversized golf tee looking htiong that is supposedly treated with something to attract them to potty near it. fro $15 it may be worth a shot.
the only problem with going in the same spot is that grass there will likely burnt up and die. we have ties out front, and there is a ring, where the ties stretch to, of burnt peed on grass. the rest of the yard is ok. the back, where they have roam to go anywhere, has no burnt spots. as long as you pooper scooper, you may be better off letting the pup go wherever in the yard.
