The #1 Easiest Way to Potty Train Your Puppy
Constantly cleaning up potty throughout the house can lead to the breaking point where some families get rid of their puppy. Breeders that establish good potty training habits from birth are essential to making the transition home easier but families continuing this process finishes up good behaviors for a lifetime.
Puppies naturally do not want to soil themselves. Placing them in a confined area while sleeping at night will discourage them from urinating or pooping until you remove them from confinement. This is where most people fail miserably fail to potty train by default.
Opening a kennel after a puppy has been confined will result in a quick escape followed by an even quicker squat which produces a puddle of urine. This is how we feel sometimes when we drive just a few too many miles when delivering puppies.
When the puppy is yelled at he will run in fear to yet another spot and repeat this behavior. Our second response is to clean it up. If you take too long then you’ll be cleaning up poop.
The easiest way to potty train is to pick up your puppy from the kennel and walking with them outside to an area that they can relieve themselves. Give them praise and their favorite food treat afterwards to doubly reward them.
The common mistake is to outsource this task to your kids that tend to be in a hurry which causes a secondary accident. Don’t go back into your home until they’ve gone poop and potty. Plan to spend a few minutes playing, giving them water, or giving them their food. If you don’t have time them build a small fenced in area that can either be temporary or permanent.
We potty train Up North Pyrenees puppies initially by carrying them outside from the whelping box holding wood chips and/or a puppy crate after sleeping for the night. After a week or two we’ll allow them to run outside on their own. Any stragglers are individually potty trained for a little longer and we rarely have puppies pee or poop in the whelping area connected to our home.

I’ve had discussions with frustrated people on how to potty train puppies that were purchased somewhere else and this is why I’m now writing this blog post.
Based on comments we receive back from our families I believe this is why our puppies are typically potty trained easier than puppies born on a farm and raised in a barn. Barns allow them to establish bad habits that some people are unable to break. We circumvent that entirely and give them a good start for you to finish.
Potty training and crate training are somewhat inseparable for a young puppy and an older dog. A lack of crate training will make your job so much harder. But, when you establish these good habits it is very easy to give them freedom later on without any problems.
Urine and poop in an area will trigger the nose of a dog or puppy producing the easiest way to potty train your puppy and in the days, weeks and years to come you’ll reap a harvest of joy…and clean carpet…and sanity.
