A lot of people say you can’t teach an old dog new trick. I just don’t know where that saying came from.
Was it a famous person who came up with that? Well anyway, you can train an old dog the same as you can train a new dog.
It might take longer because of it being used to certain ways, but you can train an old dog. Don’t think anything is impossible. Except for maybe teaching a dog to soar through the air.
Flying may just be impossible. No wings on a dog. I’m off on a tangent aren’t I? Well, this article will give you tips to dog house train your old dog as well as training a puppy.
The house training stage for a puppy is a difficult one to go through.
Puppies go to the bathroom pretty much wherever they need to. This could happen on your carpet, bed or anywhere.
An older dog that has not been trained will behave the same way. To stop this, the best thing to do is to put them on a schedule for going outside. Start doing this every thirty minutes.
Take them out every thirty minutes to begin with.
You shouldn’t break the schedule. If you do the dog will keep peeing on your rug.Soak the stain with a paper towel when this happens, because it will happen.
While holding your nose, take the stained towel out and put it in a spot where the dog should go to the bathroom. Put the dog’s nose in it and let it smell it.
This will teach them that this is where they should use the bathroom instead of in the house. Remember to keep up with the schedule.
Your dog will start to alert you when it needs to go by going to the door. You should let it out right away or you could find an accident on the floor.
This way to train your dog is the most effective way. I hope this works to better train your dog and help your home to smell better.
All the best in your endeavors with training your best friend.
