Are you tired of your doggie going pee and poop indoors? Then it’s time to train him to go outside and relieve himself there! This article will help you to arrange this stuff. Here are some tips below. Use them, and your dog will stop doing the mess in the house!
A Tiny Grown-Up
First of all, don’t treat your Shih Tzu as a baby. Of course, it is a tiny dog and house training him might be challenging. But it is still a dog despite its small size and must be regarded as any other pet.
A Special Doggie’s Bathroom
Create a defined space for the dog’s business outside. His own scent will help him to find this place. But if he misses going to a point, don’t punish him or he will be scared of you!
When to Walk the Dog
Take your dog out for 30 minutes after meals, and 10 minutes after waking from a nap. Prompt him to go to his special area. Praise or reward him when he relieves. To prevent messing in the house, at the beginning you should walk your dog out every 2-3 hours. And, of course, make sure he does all his business!
When Nobody’s Home
It sounds tough, but if you are out, place your dog into the special dog crate and put there some paper or special pee pads. It must prevent him from peeing on your carpet. But if he does, it’ll be easier for you to clean up.
Follow these simple steps, and you will find your dog behaving in a desirable way soon!
