Potty Training - toilet training your puppy

Start potty training-toilet training your  puppy straight away, your German Shepherd puppy will relieve himself frequently, so there are bound to be 'little accidents' around the house before your puppy becomes accustomed to the house-training.

You must remember that your German Shepherd puppy will want to relieve himself when he first wakes up in the morning, and after eating meals, and also during or after physical activity such as when out walking, so start toilet training your puppy straight away.

Some puppies will circle the floor and sniff the floor first, then they may look as though they are about to 'squat'. You must learn to look out for these tell tale signs and be prepared to immediately take your German Shepherd puppy outside.

Your puppy's bowels and bladder are very small so when they want to go - you have to react very quickly and take them outside at once.They become agitated when they want to relieve themselves, as they get a little older they sometimes start pawing at the door or even whining to let you know they want to relieve themselves.

At the puppy stage, it's best to confine your puppy to an easily cleaned room and cover the floor with newspaper. When your puppy decides on a preferential position - remove the rest of the sheets of newspaper, and after a few days gradually move the newspaper nearer the door each day.

When your German Shepherd puppy can go through the night without using the newspaper - then you can remove it. Always let your puppy walk with you outside and show him where you want him to go to relieve himself.
When he goes in the designated area of your garden or backyard - then praise him and tell him "Good Boy" and give him a 'treat' '.

Remember, repetition is the key - tell him what you want him to do - and show him where you want him to do it - and be consistent - repetition is the key!

Start Potty Training your puppy straight away before he picks up bad habits which will be difficult to break later.
