Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
We wanted to train him to go potty outside with his big sister Moxie, but also wanted an alternative for him to use in the house at night while we're sleeping.
We're so grateful to have such a great learning tool to use, while we're training our little guy.
I heartedly recommend the Puppy Apartment to everyone who is looking for an easy, practical housebreaking experience with their puppy!!
A few days after her arrival, my son left for Camp Lejeune and here I was trying to deal with my severe sadness and a brand new bouncing CHILD in my house! In closing, it is stated in the Instructional Training DVD that comes with the Puppy Apartment, that the PTPA Potty Pads are designed to be the absolute best on the market for odor control and their ability to absorb.
A week before my boyfriend and I were going to pick up our newest addition to the family, we did some research on trying to find the best crates available - man, did we hit the jackpot! Now at 4 months old, Bella has made it to the final training stage where she is able to roam free around the house.
We ordered the Puppy Apartment for Lil Bit, hoping for an easy way to train a miniature dachshund that was 8 months old.
I work for a Trade Showroom in Dallas, and everyone here is an animal lover through and through. I always wanted a dog, specifically a Westie, but was unsure if I would have the confidence, patience, or time necessary for house training a puppy with my busy work schedule. Before the PTPA, potty training was a hit or miss with our 10 week old Italian Greyhound, Rooney. Since using the PTPA, we have seen a dramatic increase in potty training progress and have noticed that our little guy enjoys his new-found privacy as well.
I am a totally satisfied customer and would highly recommend this for anyone considering a new puppy. Thank you to Modern Puppies for the good quality of your products and great customer service.
Your Ultimate Training Kit includes the patent pending elevated Palace Loft, which clearly defines your puppy's sleeping area. Leaving your puppy in his or her crate at night can feel similar to putting up with the behavior of babies at night – specifically your pup wants attention and will keep barking and whining until you come. Perhaps you have already got your pup and thought he would readily take to sleeping in his crate and have quickly found out otherwise! While you might be tired and ready to sleep through the night, your puppy may not be, instead he may whine, bark and make attempts to get out of his crate. As with a child one of the most important things to do as the time for bed gets closer is to take steps to minimize problems, otherwise your puppy will remain excited throughout the night and want to come out of his crate to play instead of wanting to sleep. So one of the things you will want to do is to keep him awake and active for most of the day to ensure that he does not remain excited and restless at night. So ensure that your pup’s last meal is at least 4 hours before he retires to his crate, and similarly with regards to drink – unless he really is thirsty, in which case allow him a little water, not a big trouble inviting amount!
This of course also means food and water should not be left inside the crate overnight either for the same reason.
Because of this, there really is no such thing as how to get your puppy to sleep through the night if you are crate training him, but how to get him to sleep only until he needs to relieve himself.
Preferably, especially if the crate is not too heavy and if you have already decided that you wanted to try leaving your pet in the living area and found that he starts whining and barking, then the best dog crate location for the short term will be in your bedroom. In the wild, dogs are used to being a part of a pack, and so it is naturally for a puppy when separated from company to bark and whine in distress to help pack members find him.
If you do let your pup out, be sure to take him straight to his litter tray or outside and then to take him straight back to his tray after he has spent some time in his tray or on the soil, whether he does relieve himself or not, so he understands he can come out to go for a potty break, and not to play games.
So if you want to get proactive you could set an alarm accordingly to wake you up to let your dog out for a potty break, especially when you move him to another room where you might not hear him as clearly as an alarm.
If you haven’t got your pup yet to find out for yourself, then you are probably wondering when to expect to let your puppy go potty during the night.
So now you have realized that crate training puppies at night is similar to crate training puppies during the day, and just like training during the day, it works really well if you are disciplined and use a schedule to help both you and your pet understand boundaries and expected behavior, while both getting what you need – you sleep, him being let out to relieve himself! If you are looking for the best dog crate to train your puppy in, the Midwest iCrate Single-Door Home Training and Travel Series and Midwest Life Stages crates are recommended.

They still continue to use their PTPA as an indoor doggie bathroom after they have been potty-trained.


As you know, puppies go potty every 1-2 hours when they're small, and 15 minutes after they eat or drink - so it's hard for them to hold it throughout the night while we're sleeping and sleep deprivation is challenging for a human when you have to work the next day! I showed her where I placed her Puppy Apartment in my new home to remind her of where to go potty and since then, she has used her Puppy Apartment 100% of the time! We took her to the vet the next morning and he informed us that due to her being very prone to Parvo, it would be best for her not to be around other dogs or even outside unsupervised for 3 months.
20 seconds into the demo video on the Modern Puppies website, I knew that this was the right product for Bella and us.
She was the sweetest thing ever (and still is!), but I was very apprehensive about house breaking her because Yorkies are notorious for being challenging to potty train.
I would highly recommend this product to anyone who is looking for the perfect solution to potty training. We watched the instructional DVD that comes with the Puppy Apartment and I have to say that watching the DVD made me feel 100% confident that I could potty train our little girl. She plays all day long, but when she has the urge to potty she runs as fast as she can all the way to the laundry room to potty in her PTPA. He was eight weeks old when we picked him up and we wanted to make sure we started potty training him immediately! While we were waiting for his Puppy Apartment, we tried several different potty techniques but to no avail, we had so many accidents.
We were recommended by a family member to look into the PTPA as a solution to our training woes.
The medium is upstairs, for sleeping and the small will be used on the main level completely for going potty. Due to our not being able to have children, dogs have always had a place in our home and hearts. Your Starter Kit includes Midwest I Crate wire cage, the Patent Pending Elevated Palace Loft, which clearly defines your puppy's sleeping area.
Your Deluxe Kit includes Midwest I Crate wire cage, the Patent Pending Elevated Palace Loft, which clearly defines your puppy's sleeping area. In this article, we will talk about the various issue that cause this, and what to do to prepare and encourage your puppy to sleep peacefully in his crate at night, so you and your pup no longer find night time a troubling, traumatic, and restless experience. Allowing 4 hours before your dog retires to his crate should give him ample time to digest his food and drink, and then expel his waste before he gets into his crate ready to sleep. If your dog does not relieve himself before he gets in the crate, then try to encourage him to go yourself as part of your toilet training routine, as he may not feel the need to go, but certainly has some stuff that will come out if you prompt him to go!
So do be prepared in the initial stages of crate training your puppy at night to get up one to three times during the night to let him go to his litter tray or outside.
By this stage you should already be familiar with when he needs to go to the potty to be able to determine whether he really needs to go from trying to get your attention.
And he will thus continue this behavior to get his way instead of you getting a dog that sleeps peacefully in his crate at night without troubling you. We got him used to sleeping in his little one bedroom, one bathroom puppy apartment, and we used the PTPA at night while we're sleeping as a training tool - - and he loves his puppy apartment. The first night she was in her little bedroom, she went potty on the potty pad and then went to sleep.
My son being active duty in the US Marine Corps was very concerned for me and had read about pet-therapy. So do yourself (and your dog) a huge favor and try out the PTPA for yourself to see how you like it.
I had the privilege to doggie sit these four little rascals twice when my bosses left for Christmas Vacation. We love her size, but her size makes it very difficult for her to go outside to go potty in the winter.
The initial purchase of the PTPA, bed, and potty pads seemed daunting at first, but the investment has proven to be worth the price. Only a couple weeks after setting up the PTPA and we can safely leave for work and know that our home will be safe from accidents and Rooney will have his own place to relax. We decided to purchase the XLarge Puppy Apartment for Domino who is blue heeler, which is also known as an Australian Cattle Dog. Now we don't need an eight flight down voyage for her potty walks and we love letting her drink water whenever she's thirsty.
Similarly as with training during the day, the crate should not be seen as a form of punishment, so if your puppy will not enter on command, continue to use treats to show him that going in the crate is a positive thing.


You may also wish to line the crate with paper just in case your pet does end up relieving himself inside the cage. He goes potty in the bathroom section throughout the night and when we wake up in the morning, we take him outside, and he goes potty on command in our yard! When my boyfriend and I leave the house for a quick workout at the gym, we don't have to lock Bella up; we come back to a clean house where all her business is done in her PTPA. After realizing what I had just done, I scrambled to dig up every piece of information I could on potty training. The PTPA potty pad really did seem to attract Rooney to use it as his personal bathroom and the bed was more than comfy enough for his afternoon naps. I highly recommend the PTPA for all dog masters (not just owners) looking to potty train their dogs quickly. At 8 weeks old, on December 24th, we brought Cocoa home as a Christmas gift for our children and we introduced him to the Puppy Apartment. The PTPA Potty Pads are like none that I've seen available in stores, made of good quality and very absorbent. She automatically knew not to go in her bed and with no accidents we quickly went to Level 2 training and pinned her in the living room where we could keep a close eye on her. During the day, we leave him in his PTPA Playpen area with his PTPA and he uses the bathroom section whenever he has to go potty. He woke up in the morning, I placed him in the bathroom and told him go potty, and waited a few minutes and he did!
As expected, the 1st night Cocoa cried but by the 2nd night he was sleeping and using his potty pad in the Puppy Apartment. So I went online and found another brand, still thinking I didn't want to foot the shipping bill for the PTPA Potty Pads.
I can't tell you how much unnecessary stress that the PTPA was able to alleviate for me as a new pet owner. Keep in mind that you still need to practice good patience when training your dog, but with the PTPA, your stress will seriously be reduced. He has been using it all day, and he goes straight to it to go potty, we have the door open so he can go in and out, he is confined to the kitchen. This is by far the best potty training tool and investment for anyone who is wanting to train their new puppy!!
He was not perfect at this age but we continued to follow the training tips in the Instructional DVD, which was key. We are still in the midst of potty training Cocoa because of his young age but once in his Puppy Apartment he knows where to go potty with no problems. Potty training Bella was one of my biggest concerns and it really should've been the least of my worries. We slowly expanded his area and now at 16 weeks he has the whole main level of the house to play and be with us and is 99% potty trained in the apartment. If we want to sleep in on a given morning we don't have to worry about having to take Cocoa out to potty. Ally was just unable to hold it long enough for us to get to her, so we wound up cleaning the crate and bathing her about twice a day (not to mention it was unhealthy and uncomfortable for her). It gives us piece of mind knowing that Charlie knows where to go to potty and the best part is she learned in so little time!! With that in mind I did some online research for some sort of litter box for dogs when I came across your website. We gated her in the kitchen and laid 2 potty pads down, but for what ever reason it seemed more like she was trying to avoid the pads all together. After watching the video on your site and on Youtube, I ordered the small PTPA, playpen, bedding and potty pads.
Needless to say, I am back and completely committed to the PTPA Potty Pads and my girl is back urinating on the PTPA Potty Pads 100% of the time, at only 4 months! I also like that the doors come off easily and there are rollers on the bottom of the PTPA for easy moving. I will forever endorse these pads exclusively to my friends & family - and will never again be without them!
