Having a dog is a massive responsibility; after all, we (almost always) get them as babies and we have to teach them basic domestic manners to keep them, and ourselves, happy. But who would have thought that potty training could be so cute?
These 8-week-old Waypoint Weimaraner puppies are getting an early start on their training. Not only are they very smart, but they’re also great listeners and when their human dad tells them “go pee” they do…except for that one straggler. But we are more than certain that he will get the hang of it in no time!
Whether you have a puppy or an adult dog, learn to recognize his signal for needing to go to the bathroom. One thing we know about pretty much all dogs and puppies is that they need to go after eating or drinking, after sleeping or being in a crate for a few hours, and usually after playing. Get your dog on a schedule of taking him out after these events occur, and look for signals that he may need to go – going to the door, sniffing a certain area, going in a tight circle, or starting to squat or lift his leg.
