This time of year is the busiest time of year for families with pets. Children are away from home for the summer holidays and so they need all the friends and playmates they can get during this time of year. The same is true of their pets; children are now adults and they have children, so they need to make sure their pets get enough attention. If they cannot manage this, they may resort to doing something that should be unheard of.
They may try to train their pets to relieve themselves in the right place! This is very naughty and can create problems down the road if your pet is a lazy sod!
Why they will probably try to make you think it is cute!
If you are thinking about training your dog to do it yourself, it is best to keep a couple of things in mind. Firstly, you will need the right equipment. To begin with, you will need a box or box lined with newspapers, to house the supplies. In the box, you will need a box around 6 by 6 by 3 inches. This box should be kept in a place where the children do not frequent. The contents of the box should be placed inside and secured with Velcro or tape. The box should have enough room to fit a dog in. You may want to place a pillow in the box so your dog will not be crushed in when training him or her!
Next, you need to make sure you know how to properly train your dog. This is the most important part of dog training. It is very important to know what is right and what is wrong!
You will need a collar, leash, dog potty training pads and a crate.
You will need a collar and something to attach the collar to. A good idea would be to use something that will not look like a collar, something that resembles a bandana or a hat. This is very important because they tend to get confused and associate a collar with something they should be doing.
The next thing you will need is a leash. This is a must to make sure your dog does not run around to far. You will need one that is long enough to be sure no further than your dog’s neck. You may need to get an additional leash if your dog has paws. Remember to keep these away from your children!
You will need dog potty pads and dog training pads. Potty pads are essential to get your dog in the right place. You will need a spare pad for if your dog pees on the first one. This is the same principle as a baby. The baby potties after their first urine so they are sure to their own place. Dogs also learn where they are supposed to pee on a dog pad.
Dog Training pads are important for a few reasons. They are soft and they are nice to press your dog in and they are great for correcting your dog. The pads are easy to read so you can be sure your dog knows when he is done. When you are finished and want to reward your dog, there is a button to press that makes a pleasant noise so your dog knows they are done. They are very good to press after all, if they peed on a wrong spot, they will know.
The last item you need to consider is a crate. It is a special place your dog can call their own. Your dog may not like it if he or she cannot call it from a long distance. Also, dogs that are allowed to potty in the house, will be put in a crate, but should not be allowed to pee there.
Dogs in the wild, do not go to the same place twice, they are used to having a place that is their own, a den. If this is a new concept to you, then you might want to think again. There is a crate that can make your dog believe that his or her own area is their crate. This will make the dog wait for you to open the door, so they will know when they have to go out.
Bottom line: If you are going to discipline your dog, they will get what is coming. That means you will need to be consistent, and firm. That is if you want to keep your dog behaving well. If you are not sure then get help, and if you’re thinking that it is a good idea then it is.
