Just how does one set about eating an elephant? The (grinning) response is "One bite at a time!". It's the same with any large task, really. Taken altogether, it may be formidable. Break it down into its elements, into small bite-sized pieces, and those don't look formidable an any respect. The steps will be smaller. They will each be easy enough and "do-able". And when you have all of them done, why, you will see that you have accomplished your whole large task. That's just precisely how it really is with the way to outdoor training your puppy. Listed below are 7 easy steps that you can take to outdoor training your puppy, rapidly!

Step 1. Get a Pen, They are made of Metal panels, each two feet wide, hooked together with sturdy clips. Make sure its tall enough so Puppy doesn't get out or climb over it. Or you can block off a small room that you can gate off. Cover the whole floor with newspapers. This is just for those accidents that will happen. Put your Crate in the pen and leave the door open and put a towel inside of Crate. This will be her Bed, her safe den. This will mean that you will need to Make her a room to call her own when you are gone from home. A place where she feels safe. Should you choose not to do this or forget it, you may expect Some big messes when you get home from work. Not only is it for your sanity but for her safety. Just think of it as you have a 2 year old Baby at home now. They will get into everything in a matter of seconds..

Step 2. Establish a Regular Feeding and "In and Out" Time. Take her out every two hours, First thing in the Morning, Right after she wakes up from a nap, If you work things will go more slowly unless you can have someone let her out at lunch time. Feeding time should be two to four times a day, depending on her age. Pick up her water bowl at night. This step is very important because Getting on a schedule with the Feeding and in and out times will not only help with the Potty training but she will get on a schedule of Potty time.

Step 3. Choose a bathroom spot in your yard. You can even put another pen outside just to put her in to potty and she will do it quick to get out of the thing. Other wise she may just sniff around and do nothing. If she doesn't do her business in 10 minutes bring her in but let her have free time yet. Then take her out again in another 30 minutes and when you see her go say a word or phrase that will trigger her to do what you want Like "Go to the Bathroom". Which means if you are consistent in your feeding and in out times. You will train your puppy in record time. It will also signify that You can have a trained Puppy that will be the envy of the Dog Park.

Step 4. When she does do her business tell her "Goood Girrrl!" and give her a tiny treat for the job well done and let her go play before you put her back in her pen. This may require Diligence but you will be greatly rewarded for it. Just remember you are training a member of your family that will live with you for a long time and you don't want to constantly pick up messes..

Step 5. If she uses the paper in her pen, show her the mistake with mild "no no" But if she is still a baby and you have been gone for hours she can't help it. Just clean it up so not to encourage indoor bathroom or if she is very small put in a Litterbox to train for indoor use.. A significant point to remember here is Consistency, consistency, consistency its just like your Grandpa wants his meals at 4:30 sharp, your little Puppy will learn when its time to do his outdoor duty's at a certain time also.. Why this is often important is If you are consistent with your Feeding and in and out time. That is the biggest hurtle to jump.

Step 6. Never let your Puppy Loose in the house without your constant supervision until Puppy Training is over. You can use a leash and tie one end to your belt and the other to her collar. This lets her be close to you and can keep close tabs on her.

Step 7. When accidents are becoming fewer you can take the paper up and let open one side of her pen so she can go in and out when she wants. You are now almost there! Remember, She is only a Puppy so don't punish her. Just correct softly and get back on the schedule.

When you keep to the steps set forth above, step-by-step the large elephant-challenge you had been facing will be "consumed", conquered and finished off. You will succeed in completing your project and can enjoy the fruits of victory and accomplishment! Congratulations to you!
