Border Collie: Potty Training Basics

Potty training can be a challenge to some dog owners. Discover simple tips on how to achieve successful result in potty training...

A new border collie brings joy and excitement to the whole family. This breed is capable of performing tasks that can make life a little less difficult. And besides, knowing that there is someone at home waiting for your return is enough to paint a smile on your face even in your darkest days.
However, this joy and excitement often wears off quickly and the smiles are turned into screams of frustration when this new baby is turning into a little monster and starts to use the house as his bathroom. Thus, it is always recommended to potty train a border collie as early as possible.

To make potty training easy and less challenging, you need to understand first the nature of puppies. Just like human babies, puppies have very small bladders and bowels. This makes it hard for them to control their desire to eliminate. The best thing a border collie owner should do is to supervise his pet closely. Watch for signs that Fido is about to do his business. These signs include turning in circles, sniffing the floor, pacing, whimpering or staring at you. When your pup exhibits any of these signs, take him to the appropriate spot and let him do his thing. Also, take him outside after waking up in the morning, after eating and drinking, after exercise and before going to bed. Praise and reward  your dog every time he does his thing outside. By doing so, you are helping your pet develop his potty schedule. The process can be time-consuming but don't worry. It will not last forever. When your puppy is old enough to control his bladder and bowels (which happens when he is around 12 weeks old), things will be different.

It is not a dog's intention to commit accident purposely. Understand that accidents cannot be avoided and punishment is not necessary when correcting your dog. When you come home to a pile of poo beside the couch, never hit your dog for it. He will never understand that he is being punished for the mistake he did hours ago. When caught in the act of doing his thing inside the house, make a noise loud enough to distract him but not too loud to scare him to death. Take him out immediately and let him finish at the right spot. Praise and reward your dog after.

By being consistent and determinedFind Article, you'll eventually realize that you have become successful in your quest  for having a reliably housebroken border collie.
