Learn How to Litter Train You Puppy Easily and Fast
Puppy litter training is the newest trend in puppy training. Litter training is another method for toilet training a puppy. If you live in a high-rise apartment or live in the cold and snowy place you can litter train your puppy. Whatever reason you want to litter train your puppy, it can be done a puppy can be trained to use a litter box just like a cat.
I have never litter trained my own puppies because I prefer to walk and toilet train my puppy, I understand that certain conditions might prevent puppy owners from walking the puppies often enough to get them to toilet train their puppy. If you are elderly and cannot walk long enough or you work long hours and are not able to walk your dog often enough, litter training your puppy can be the best thing for you.
Though there are many different puppy litter boxes available from expensive ones, like “Ugodog” or grass turf to toilet train your puppy, to an inexpensive version for your puppy like the litter box you would use for a cat. The only difference is that you need to get a bigger litter box than you would if you have a larger puppy.
Keep in mind when litter training your puppy that the size of your puppy is going to become a factor. Larger puppies require larger litter boxes or puppy pads. The reason for this is larger dogs require large litter boxes, and large dogs end up with… well larger things come out of them. So litter training a large dog might not be the best way to housebreak your puppy. But if you choose to toilet train your puppy with a litter box you need to know how to set up the puppy litter box.
is much like setting up a litter box for your cats. You need to get a large tray that is big enough for your puppy to maneuver in. Get the same kind of granules that you would buy for your kitty litter box and fill the tray with it. You want to make sure that the tray is deep enough to hold enough granules to enable them to absorb your puppy’s urine, yet low enough to allow your puppy to comfortably climb into it and use the toilet. You should get the kind of kitty litter granules that absorb the puppy’s urine and form hardened clumps that are easy to scoop out and throw away with the poop.
can be just as tricky as paper training your puppy. You should use your training crate to hold your puppy until you are sure that he will always go to his litter box to do his business. This can take a while and as your puppy is outside of the training crate, you need to watch your puppy at first. If you see that your puppy is starting to squat or lift up his leg, you need to direct him to his litter box before he does it. That is the best way.
If you see the mess already, put him in the training crate. Leave him in there for a while. Keep in mind, when your puppy does his business other than in his litter box, tell him “NO!”
every time you see him do his business in his litter box. Tell your puppy “good boy” or “good girl” when he goes to his or her litter box without your guiding him or her. Give him a treat and he will eventually learn that this is the puppy toilet.
is very important to make your puppy comfortable doing his business in there. The right granules will solidify when they come in contact with urine. These solid clumps can easily be scooped up and thrown away with a proper scooper. The proper litter box scooper is a sifted scooper, which has slats that allow the dry litter to fall back into the litter box but hold the clumps that are too big to fall through the slats. This means that you are able to pick up the urine clumps together with the poop and conveniently throw it into the garbage, like with a cat litter box. Make sure that after cleaning your dog’s litter box, the granules are spread evenly. You should add new granules occasionally.
Remember. It’s all in the litter training. Puppies usually learn quickly if you are persistent. If you choose to litter train a larger dog, you will still need to take him for a walk so that he can get the exercise he needs.
