Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
And, the good news is that if you have an older dog that needs a little help in this area, that is no problem at all, even old dogs can learn a few new tricks!
You wouldn’t bring a baby home from the hospital and expect no dirty diapers and you wouldn’t smack your toddler in the face for having a bad day or an accident or two. If you throw a fit and scare your puppy he associates YOU with something bad, not having an accident or going potty in the house. This is why so many dogs sneak out of the room to urinate or defecate, not because they are ashamed or they know it is wrong to potty inside… it is because they have been taught not to go potty in front of you (which makes this process so much harder!). Crates are not devices of torture, they are tools to help you with potty training and other things (like keeping your puppy from eating things he shouldn’t).
Puppies would much rather play with leaves and bugs than go potty, if you aren’t there to see that you won’t know your pup needs to go back into his crate and come out again 5-10 minutes later! Contrary to some beliefs, potty training a puppy should start with the breeder very early in life.
Ideally at 6 to 7 weeks old, you will have an 8 x 10' area for small breeds or a larger area for large breeds with a bed in one corner, and food and potty at opposite sides of the pen. Do not use treats when potty training as it takes the dog's focus off of the business at hand and puts it on the food. Sleep area should NEVER have feces in it, you have to start changing that bedding every hour if needed. At six weeks, the puppies do very well eliminating where they are supposed to MOST of the time. Although this section is based on a whelping of an English Mastiff, it also contains good general whelping information on large-breed dogs. Potty training a puppy is a little trickier when you have an apartment, since you can't install a doggie door or easily let your furry companion outside. When you're house training a puppy, it's very important that you be available to meet her needs at all times of the day.
In order for positive reinforcement to work effectively as a training strategy, consistency is key.


I know people who avoid getting puppies just to skip this process, and in some ways I totally understand that! Some puppies are very proficient when they are very young and some puppies take longer to gain this control and understanding. By yelling you are teaching him to avoid going potty “in front of you” you are not potty training him!
People who bring their puppies straight home and allow complete access to the house, have the most trouble with potty training.
Potty training is all about you and it is your responsibility when he is young to help him be successful. If they are soft or mushy (pudding-like) ask the vet for enough wormer to worm all the puppies and mom.
For the bigger dogs, you need to get a t-shirt, fairly large, and then you buy a bed sheet clamping holder (sheet straps). Puppies actually like the feeling of being in a small, cozy crate - it makes them feel safe and secure. Very young puppies might wake up barking, though, so you should line the crate with towels just in case your puppy has an accident in the night.
Nothing with ammonia in it, as that smells like urine to puppies, and they'll try to go in that spot again, what you don't want to happen. If you change from paper training to house training halfway through, it will confuse your puppy, and make it more difficult, but done consistently potty training your puppy can be a breeze.
Get him outside about every two hours, monitor him outside and when he is inside and be diligent! As a result, the owners of these pups will have an easier time housetraining their new puppy.
Also, if they walk in the poop, and then walk on their bedding, they have put feces smell on the blankets, so I also cover the poop with a small piece of paper so the others do not walk in it. Older puppies also need to relieve themselves frequently, as they can't physically hold their bladder for more than an hour or two.[1] To avoid accidents, scoop up your puppy and take her outside once an hour like clockwork.


If you have a small dog who makes manageable messes, you can consider paper training your dog instead of taking her outside every time.
Newspaper does work, but the ink can transfer onto the dogs and for white pups this is not good. Line an area of the room with newspapers or special training pads you can buy at the pet store. Puppies don't like soiling their living space, so make sure you take your puppy outside so she can go to the bathroom right before you put her in the crate.
Use the same training method you'd use for an outdoor bathroom spot, carrying your puppy to the papers each time she has to go.
An all-around mild mannered, wonderful Mastiff, Sassy, however, is not the best mother toward her puppies.
Puppies raised using this method are easier to housebreak and have fewer accidents in the house, as you are distilling the concept of housebreaking to them at a very young age.
Puppies who are raised in cages where the areas are not separated do not understand this concept. This in return not only helps the breeder keep the whelping area clean, it makes the puppy easier to housebreak once they go to their new homes.
Wake them up every couple hours and put them out on the paper: don't let them back into the bed area until they pee ON the paper.
Then, after you take them home, you suddenly expect them to understand they cannot pee and poo in the house.
