Paper Training Your Puppy


Paper training is a common method used for housebreaking your puppy. Start by setting aside a puppy-proof area for your puppy to hangout while you are training him. Cover the floor with newspaper so your puppy can urinate or defecate as he needs to. Gradually remove sheet by sheet until there is just one sheet in front of the door. Whenever your puppy approaches the paper, shoo him out the door. Watch for any pre-elimination behaviors such as turning around in circles, hunching up or squatting. Soon your puppy will get the message that outside is the place to go when he needs to eliminate. And as his bladder and bowels mature, he will become more consistent. Never punish your puppy for messing in the house. Just clean it up without fuss. Praise your puppy whenever he does his business outside.
