Meet Dusty The Kangaroo Who Thinks He’s A Dog
One of the biggest issues dog owners face is potty training. To make the matter worse, everyone has their own opinion on what to do, and they don’t mind telling you about it. We’re here to help! We’ve considered all the arguments and settled on this simple solutions. Let’s check them out:
Remember, your dog doesn’t know what potty training is.
Popular wisdom dictates that a puppy can hold it in for the same amount of hours as his or her age in months. So, the way this works is that a 2-month-old puppy can hold it in for two hours, a 3-month-old puppy can hold it for three, etc. However, of course a 9-month-old can’t hold it for nine hours! That’s just common sense. You’ve gotta use your best judgement here. Take your puppy outside as often as you can to avoid messes. At the same time, though, keep in mind whether or not your puppy has had all the necessary vaccinations. If they haven’t, don’t spend too much time outside and make sure he doesn’t have access to other dogs and animals in general.
What to do if your dog pees when someone is at the door?
The unfortunate thing is that some dogs do urinate when they are excited. This is especially pronounced in younger dogs. If you want to minimize this behavior, it would be good to try warning your visitors before they come over to your house that you have a new puppy and that they should make as little movement and commotion when they come in. Also try taking your dog outside first before guests come over.
What if your dog goes to the bathroom on your plants?
If your dog is a male that has not been neutered, this will be one of the biggest challenges you face. You will solve this problem only with patience and determination. You must keep a close eye on your pup and stop him in his tracks before he even begins trying to mark your plans or other household items.
