How to house break your pup by humon How to house break your pup by humon

Thought I'd share. :)

I'm sure there's easier methods, but this one is foolproof.

This is the method my family has always used. We also combine it with this rule of thumb: Always take your puppy out directly after feeding time, nap time and play time. It worked like a charm for all of our puppies except one. She didn't become fully house broken until she was about 10 months old, no matter how hard we tried. All the others were house broken much faster. XD

I assumed this was common sense..... no?
Or was I just raised with dogs....

Be forewarned - if the dog knows its a bad thing to pee/poop indoors, and you piss it off for WHATEVER reason, don't be surprized if your house broken dog decides to pee in a place where he isn't suppose to just to get back at you. =3=.... unless that's just my dog too....

this is the hethod I looked up when I picked up some new dog lol it's only difficult because it requires conviction and followthrough, but its certainly the fastest way~

My freaking mom just got a puppy. Thank god I live on my own now 'cause every time I'm over, she does all of this completely backwards. She's got the poor thing so nervous that it pees whenever anyone starts giving it any kind of attention! :( And to make it worse, she won't listen to a word I say about proper puppy care and training. It is not a person, mom, it does not think like we do, it doesn't understand! She's never listened to me about anything, though, since I'm her daughter and she's supposed to be "smarter" than me. I don't even care about that anymore, I just feel so sorry for that poor animal she's tried to replace me with...

This is so cute. We just got a new puppy. She was sick when we got her, but she's all better now, and she more or less sleeps through the night. But during the day it sure seems like she has to pee all the time, lol. We've taken her outside, and she's peed like three times, ten minutes later she'll pee on the floor. lol. When my husband picked her up at the vet he let her run around for a bit but when she didn't show any signs of needing to pee he put her in the truck, where she immediately peed on the seat, lol. Puppies are a lot of work at the beginning, but compared to when we got her, I'll take peeing ten minutes after I finish mopping over having to stay at the vets any day.

Heh, my 9 year old Sandy was house trained easily. As soon as she woke up from a nap or sleeping all night my mom would put her outside and wait for her to do something. Aside from when she was super small, we haven't had any accidents. Well, not counting the few sickie accidents and being just a teeny bit over excited.

This is very helpful to people ^^ Simple and to the point.

But to comment on the something said in the beginning of the comic; "a dog breed that is so notoriously difficult to house-break some say it can't be done"

I do not believe that any breed is incapable of being trained,or performing a desired action. If the people within the household put the time and effort every day to train the dog, nothing is impossible. From what I have seen, the issue with small dogs usually aren't the dogs themselves, but with the owner's (or other household members') lack of disciplining and training the dog.

The way I see it is if I can teach my felines to sit, stay and come on command, and the cats perform those basic acts better than someone's dogs... than you may not be doing something right. And before someone takes offense, I held myself to these standards too. Until the dogs were trained, I was always comparing the dogs to the cats.
