Housetraining your new puppy doesn’t have to be hard—it can even be fun if you follow this expert advice!
Schedule after six months
SPCALA recommends sticking to this schedule until your puppy reaches a year:
· 6:00 AM: Walk/feed/water
· 8:00 AM: Walk
· 10:00 AM: Walk/water
· 2:00 PM: Walk/water
· 6:00 PM: Walk/feed
· 6:00 PM: Last water of the day
· 10:00 PM: Walk
Plan for playtime!
According to experts at the SPCALA, “Play/training time should be scheduled several times throughout the day.” They also advise walking him again before putting him back in his confined area because playing tends to stimulate a puppy. By training and playing at the same time, you can keep training fun and you’ll teach your puppy that learning and training are enjoyable. Check out more helpful early dog-training tips.
