Three compelling reasons for using a puppy house training schedule are as follows:
- The goal is to house break the puppy as quickly as possible. A schedule will help minimize accidents. The fewer the number of accidents, the sooner the dog will be house trained.
- A puppy does not have the muscular maturation to hold his eliminations until he is about 16 weeks old. Before that, a schedule will help develop proper house training habits.
- If there is more than one family member helping out, a schedule enables communication. It will also minimize finger pointing and assigning blame for accidents.
Activities You Can Plan
The major objection to a house training schedule – “I don’t know when the dog is going to pee or poop!”
Yes, you do – and here is a list of the times when you know the pup has to eliminate:
- When he gets up in the morning.
- After he eats.
- After a nap (they are predictable).
- After he plays or exercises for more than a few minutes.
- Before he goes to sleep for the night.
