Tips for How to Stop a Dog from Peeing in the House
In the middle of the night, and you are awake as are most new dog owners, you see that your puppy is becoming restless, carry him outdoors and stay with him till he relieves himself. The key word to stop your dog peeing in the house during this whole process is “patience”. For some dogs the best way to train or to correct an older dog from having an episode of bad timing is to have the dog neutered. Neutering will not only have a good effect on the marking of territory by the younger dog, but it has also been helpful in the prevention of marking of an adult dog.
The quickest way of breaking your family pets of this habit and ensuring that the dog potty is done outside, is to catch them in the act. The constant repetition on your part and the crating will ensure that your dog will go from a bad dog, to a respected member of the family.
To give you some guidance, if you can potty train a Jack Russell terrier you can house train any dog. The first thing to know about the Russell terrier breed is that he can be trained only, if he wants to be trained. The Jack Russell is the text book reference to any type of dog that you would need to house train, whether a pup or an older dog as stated above. Establishing the routine, crating and praise are all that you will need. If you can train a Russell terrier to be allowed alone for more than 6 hours after four months of age you can do it with any type of dog.
Remember the first thing you want in any dog you bring home, whether adult or pup, is how to stop a dog from peeing in the house – after that the rest is family fun and memories.
