You are able to prevent some potential accidents by anticipating your dog’s movements as soon as your pet has to go potty. Have him go outside every two hours, because he’s not capable of controlling his bladder very well. A pup also needs to venture out immediately after he awakens, eats, drinks or finishes playing, because that’s when he’s probably in dire need to defecate or pee. This is the reason why feeding and giving water to your dog should have a set schedule. This can be so important when you’re toilet training your pet dog.
You probably won’t get many nights of uninterrupted sleep through the first stages of potty training a dog. Once he’s nine or ten weeks old, a puppy should only be taken out each night for a walk.
