Potty Training a New Puppy

Potty training can is one of the biggest challenges for new puppy owners. It takes a tremendous amount of patience and attention in order to be successful. We have some quick tips that will help you your way to having a successfully potty trained pup!


Keeping up with consistent feeding times for your puppy makes keeping track of when your puppy might need to go potty easy. Young puppies should be feeding of 2-3 times per day, depending on vet recommendation. If your puppy has eaten its lunch and has had water, they will need to go in the next 30 to 60 minutes.


Be proactive and let your puppy out to potty before they have to chance to sneak off and do it on your favorite blanket. Before allowing them the freedom to play with toys or roam around the house for the first time, be sure that they have gone to the bathroom to prevent an accident from happening.

It is important to teach your puppy that the first thing they need to do outside is to go potty. If you are sure that your puppy needs to go, but all they want to do is play, put them back in their crate and then let them out again in a few minutes. Using this approach will also teach your puppy down the line to give a sign when they need to go outside.
