When is the best time to potty train dog?

When is the best time to potty train your dog? What is an easy way to train them to pee on the pad? OR if they had their shots, could i just train them to pee outside instead?

We're crate training our pupy and this is going very well. I don't like the pads personally, if you want the dog to toilet outside start as you mean to go on I reckon. We have had very few accidents inside and these were of course because I didn't see the warning signs and get him outside quick enough. He has never gone in his crate and is now mostly indicating that he wants to go out by going to the door. He is only 15 weeks old so we're happy with his progress so far.

When they are inside sleeping, then crate them, when they are awake you have to keep taking puppy outside and when it wees or poos reward him. They learn so quickly. If you see he is going to wee or poo, use a tone ah ah, or no, pick him up and put him outside and let him finish off. Reward each time. Never get angry or smack or rub a nose in, this does not work. A tone you still need to use to let puppy know its not allowed to do this in the house.

Good luck

I dont recomend the pads because ive heard that some dogs start to pee on anything on the ground thinking its the pad, like shirts and papers..ect. And to me they are a wast of money.

Depends on how old the puppy is. I start potty training right when I get it! If you have other dogs then I would suggest starting in a place where other dogs havent been like front yard. Unless it does have all shots...

Yea i will have to agree with everyone else, as soon as they have their shots then its best to train them to get them to go outside. The older they get, the harder it can get, i had to train my 6-8 month old dog to be house trained and it took a long time.

Plus i think that its less confusing when they are used to one place to go, instead of going from pads to outside (and less work XD)

Good luck

i started my potty train when my dogs were around 2-3 months old. I trained them with old newspaper outside. You can actually know when the dogs want to pee/poo, they tend to sniffing the ground. Pick them up and carry them outside. I give them treat if they pee/poo on the newspaper. i just wrap the old newspaper and throw them away. Everytime they wanna pee/poo, they will bark at the door to alert me.

I have 6 dogs ( 3 female and 3 male) and they are all potty trained this way.
