HOUSE-TRAINING YOUR DOG

Respected author and trainer Charlotte Schwartz offers an in-depth look at how to train your canine companion to have clean habits in the home. Whether you are starting out with a young puppy, adopting an adult dog, adjusting to the relief needs and care of a senior dog or trying to overcome potty-related behavior problems, House-Training Your Dog outlines a plan for success.

INSIDE

Submissive UrinationThis behavior is quite common in puppies and usually subsides as the puppy matures. In addition, some breeds are more prone to submissive urination than others. The secret to helping the puppy outgrow this behavior is not to recognize it at all.

Let?s say you are greeting your dog upon returning from work. As you bend down to pet the dog, you notice a small puddle spreading underneath the puppy. Your first reaction is to yell ?No!? and begin scolding the dog for wetting indoors. As long as you notice the accident, the dog will probably continue to have more of them.

Instead of yelling and making a big fuss, try the following routine. When you come home, do not greet the dog excitedly. Instead, be casual and say, ?Let?s go out? as you head for the door with the pup?s collar and leash in your hand. Hook up the dog quickly and proceed directly to his exercise area. Once he urinates and you?re sure that he?s done, you can greet him outdoors. By the time you get back in the house, the excitement of the reunion will be over and the dog will be his normal self again.

In the case of a dog, puppy or adult, that urinates submissively whenever you pet him, again don?t recognize the accident. Once the dog wets the floor, take him out of the room, clean up the spot and say nothing about it to him when you bring him back into the room. If he gets no attention for causing an accident, he will probably realize that he can get your attention in other ways. The secret is not letting him see you clean up the accident. In other words, you don?t see it, recognize it or give him attention for creating it.

In addition, instead of bending down to pet the dog, teach him to come up to your hand by raising his head and looking into your face. When he does, take your hand and pet him under the chin and along the sides of his face. Petting a submissive dog on the top of his head or around his face often makes the dog urinate submissively. By keeping your hands under the chin and along the sides of the head and shoulders, the dog does not react submissively.
