Bringing a new puppy into your home is such an exciting experience, but it also comes with its fair share of challenges. Puppies are full of energy and curiosity, and while their enthusiasm is adorable, it can sometimes lead to behaviour problems.
In this article, we’ll explore common behaviour problems and provide practical solutions to help you raise a well-behaved and happy pup.
Going to the toilet inside
Toilet training can be a challenge, but consistency is key. Choose a designated spot and take your puppy there after playing, sleeping, eating and drinking. Use a command like “toilet” or “wee wee”, and reward them with a treat.
You’ll soon recognise the signs that they need to go, such as heading for the door, circling or squatting. Accidents are part of the learning process; clean up thoroughly to remove any lingering odours that might attract them back to the same spot and start again. Remember, puppies learn at different speeds, so be patient.
