Question:
How do I potty train my dog?
- Stephanie
iCrate
iCrate is designed completely around the safety, security and comfort of your dog.
Answer:
A lot of veterinarians believe that crate training is the best and fastest way to train your dog. This is because most dogs do not wish to soil the place they sleep or spend time so they will hold it until they are out of their cage. You want to make sure your cage is the right size for your dog, this is because sometimes the dog will urine in the corner and will sleep on the other side. You want them to learn not to urinate in the cage. Once you let your dog out of the cage, quickly take them outside. Keep doing this until they are used to doing it themselves without your assistance of taking them outside. Another way is using training pads. These pads encourage a dog to urinate on them. Although this method takes its’ time, the dog will get used to the routine of urinating on the pad.
