In the wild, WOLF mothers are very particular about keeping their den or nest very clean. Domesticated dogs are very much the same. When your puppy is born his mother will lick him to encourage him to relieve himself, and as your puppy gets older and begins eating and walking on his own he will start to eliminate on his own. Around this time the mother will stop cleaning up after him. The mother has taught the puppy from birth not to eliminate where he sleeps or eats, this encourages him to walk away from his bed and food area to eliminate. A responsible breeder will start the litterbox training process at 3-4 weeks around the time the mother stops cleaning up after them and be diligent about keeping their pen clean. This causes an aversion to poop and pee. When this is done correctly and by the time you have purchased your pup, he will already know not to eliminate in his bed. This gives you a great advantage in potty training and you will appreciate the breeder for it in the long run. When the mother stops cleaning up after puppies we prepare a litter box tray and stick it in their pen. Our puppies pick this up very quickly and often are trained within a couple of days. Once puppy goes home we encourage you to keep up with this type of training. Leaving his mother and littermates can sometimes cause puppy to become stressed. If you decide to continue litter box training be sure for the first couple of days you show him where his litter box is and give him treats to encourage him to keep using a litter box. Our tiny puppies have small bladders and cannot hold it as long as bigger dog breeds. Litter box training is a wonderful tool to use when you can’t make it home in time to let him out. We believe that if you stay consistent with this type of training until puppy has grown enough to hold it for a couple of hours without accidents then your house training process will be much easier. Once you are confident puppy can go longer without accidents and if you choose to train him to potty outside you can gradually remove the litter box.

From the moment you get your puppy home you should begin the training process. Puppies begin learning as soon as they are born and a good dog breeder will begin handling and socializing their puppies right away. Some training can begin as soon as puppies open their eyes and begin to walk, an example of this is litter box training. Young puppies have short attention spans but can be expected to learn simple basic commands such as ”sit,“ “down,” “wait.” These can be taught as young as 7-8 weeks. Owners that take the time to learn themselves how to teach these things to their pup and are most importantly CONSISTENT are off to a great start (anyone can be a dog trainer). A simple 10 minute a day session with small treats, a toy, or simple praise will go a very long way. If you see that your pup is chewing on furniture and you do not want that behavior, simply discourage that behavior and distract your pup away from the furniture with a fun “toy“. The same can be said of any bad behavior, remember it may be cute now while your puppy is little but when he gets bigger and can cause some damage you may no longer find it cute. I have attached a couple of my favorite simple training videos below. Take some time and watch them. If you schedule 10 minutes a day learning and teaching your puppy just the basics. You’ll be surprised how quickly your pup will pick up his new tricks and how well You and he will enjoy your short sessions. Challenge yourself by learning how to teach your puppy a new trick once he has picked one up and he will be always eager to learn new things with you. These simple things paired with a short walk every day or a session of tug a war should be plenty for our smart adorable little fluff balls!
