Tiny Jewel Pups Havanese Potty Training

Here is the Ultimate Guide to Potty training your small breed dog. We know it can be a daunting task, but don't worry, we've got you covered! With a little bit of patience, a lot of love, and some good old-fashioned puppy treats, your furry friend will be potty trained in no time.

Step 1: Choose a designated potty spot

The first step in potty training your small breed dog is to choose a designated potty spot. This could be a specific area in your backyard, or a spot on the sidewalk during your daily walks. Choose a spot that is easy to access and far enough away from your house or apartment, so your dog doesn't get confused.

Step 2: Stick to a routine

Consistency is key when it comes to potty training your small breed dog. Stick to a routine by taking your dog outside to the designated potty spot at the same times every day. This could be first thing in the morning, after meals, or before bedtime.

Step 3: Praise and reward

When your small breed dog goes potty in the designated spot, make sure to praise and reward them with treats or toys. Positive reinforcement is the best way to encourage good behavior and make your furry friend feel loved and appreciated.

Step 4: Clean up accidents immediately

Accidents happen, even when you're potty training your small breed dog. When accidents occur, make sure to clean them up immediately with an enzymatic cleaner. This will eliminate any odors and discourage your dog from going potty in the same spot again.

Step 5: Be patient and consistent

Potty training a small breed dog takes time and patience, so don't get discouraged if your furry friend doesn't catch on right away. Be consistent with your routine, and continue to praise and reward your dog when they go potty in the designated spot. With time and love, your small breed dog will be potty trained in no time!

In conclusion, potty training a small breed dog can be a fun and rewarding experience for both you and your furry friend. Remember to stick to a routine, praise and reward good behavior, and be patient and consistent. And most importantly, don't forget to give your furry friend lots of love and cuddles along the way!
