Boston Terrier Potty Training Essentials

By: Wendycaples
Bringing home a puppy is always an exciting event. However the not so fun part is all the accident that your new arrival is bound to have. You should start Boston Terrier training right away for your sanity and the happiness of the whole family. There is a way to make this a fun thing. Boston Terrier potty training should be the whole family's responsibility. The family should decide together on a method and work together.

This method of Boston Terrier potty training requires discipline on your part. That's right, it's not all up to the dog. A large part of the success of your Boston Terrier training will depend on you and your focus.

Lots of praise and treats are important to make sure that your Boston Terrier potty training goes well. A good way to facilitate the Boston Terrier training is to use a specific treat that your dog loves for Boston Terrier training. When your puppy has successfully gone in the garden or whatever area then you should praise the dog and reward it with a treat that is only used for potty training.

Everyone in your family should be involved in Boston Terrier potty training and use the same commands so as not to confuse your puppy. Sometimes you will find that your puppy will not be interested in going after meal times even though you wait and wait. Bring your puppy inside and keep a close eye on it, don't turn your back for even a minute because your puppy is sure to have an accident in that one minute. Wait five minutes and then take it outside again and repeat the process.

Remember that Boston Terrier potty training takes time. A month is not enough for your Boston Terrier to be perfectly trained. If your puppy is only a few weeks old then it is still very young and it may be quite a while before it is properly trained.

Make sure your doggy crate has toys and bedding in it, everything possible to make it feel like home for your dog. There will be a few occasions when your dog has accidents in the crate. Don't be discouraged, just clean out the crate and perhaps check more regularly on your puppy. Remember that if your puppy starts to squat or sniff around then it is likely to have one of those accidents. So take it quickly to the place you want it to go.

After playtime or anytime that your puppy is excited, for example when it first sees you, it will need to go. Other times include after naps and a whole night of sleeping as well as after meal times. It can sometimes be annoying because when you take your dog out after these times it does not go but the minute you go back inside it has an accident.

This area should not be isolated yet at the same time it should be an area of the house that is easy to clean up. You will need maybe a four or five months before you see consistent results. Before this you can expect smooth sailing in the Boston Terrier potty training to be interrupted by an accident. Don't harshly punish your Boston for this, instead treat it as a minor setback and move on.
