The science and art of potty training a dog is not that easy. In fact, many pet owners would surrender after a week or two of potty training their dog. Toilet training a mature dog is equally problematic as attempting to toilet train a pup. Just don’t be taken in by that old adage that “you simply can’t train an old dog new tricks”. This just isn’t true. To begin with, toilet training is not a trick, it is a discipline, and something that older dogs can learn just as a pup.
Train your adult dog to get rid of their waste within the yard and never in the home. Bear in mind that when confronted with a grownup dog, training them to behave well, instead of not to make a move is simpler. Old habits do die hard with adult dogs, therefore if your pet has already been accustomed to defecating in the home, your work in training your adult dog isn’t to prevent him from soiling your floor but rather to head outdoors.
