Every dog needs to be housetrained. No dog can be fully social until he learns where he should be eliminating and where he should not! If this is your first dog (or puppy), you – and your dog – have lots to learn, but don’t be alarmed. Neither of you can learn it all at once.
Take it a step at a time and enjoy each other throughout the process. Make it a fun experience for your pet. Your dog should enjoy these sessions instead of being fearful.
Some breeds are easy to housetrain as they don’t like for their living quarters to be messy or smelly or they really like to please their owners. Other breeds are more difficult to housetrain. Others may take a special type of training.
However, with patience and persistence, nearly every dog can be housetrained. It is important to learn as much about the breed of your dog as you can.
Talk to other owners, veterinarians, breeders, etc. and read books about the breed. If your dog is a mixture of breeds, learn about all the breeds you can iden.
