How To House Train A Stubborn Dog

There are many things that can go wrong when house training a dog. Most of them are minor, but they can be very dangerous. I will share some tips that will help you when you are trying to house train your new puppy or dog.

If you have never been able to house train a stubborn dog, it is hard to know what to do. Sometimes it is just a matter of trial and error, but if you do not know any other tips you can use, it is better to try out the basic ones first. This way you can make sure that you know all the steps before you get started.

First, make sure that your puppy is getting plenty of exercise. This means that it must go outside frequently and get exercise before going inside. You can also play games with your dog in order to keep it busy for hours. A lot of people who are trying to house train dogs usually give up after a while. They think that they need a lot of time to train a dog and they get frustrated when they cannot control their dog. Just remember that the problem is not with the dog but with you.

There are many different ways to house train a dog, but it is very important that you know what you are doing and that you use the proper methods. When you are trying to teach your dog a new trick, it is a good idea to work on a new trick every day until your dog can learn it easily. The more tricks that you can teach your dog, the easier it will be for it to learn.

Another thing that you need to make sure that you are doing is to remove any toys from your house. Toys are just a big distraction for your dog. If it is so engrossed in playing with its toy, it is less likely to pay attention to you when you tell it to come. I am sure that you would never want your dog to get lost in the middle of nowhere! Therefore, you should make sure that you keep the dog’s toys outside.

As you can see, there are some mistakes that you should avoid when you are trying to house train a stubborn dog. Make sure that you take enough time to properly train your puppy and that you know which methods work and which do not.

James grew up on a farm in Illinois, spending his days training homing pigeons and playing with the other animals. James started his dog training journey when he was in college. He also spent all of her spare time reading about animal behavior. After graduating from Colorado College with a degree in biology James continued training dogs part-time while he worked for a conservation advocacy nonprofit. Around that time, he joined the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants. James later got a job at Denver Dumb Friends League, the fourth-largest animal shelter in the U.S. There, he helped assess, train, and adopt out thousands of dogs of all shapes and sizes. James met Oscar, his border collie, during his time at the shelter. They've been fast friends ever since.
