Are you looking for tips to help you in potty training your new Goldendoodle Puppy?

The recommended time to start potty training your puppy is from 12 to 16 weeks of age. By this time your new  Goldendoodle puppy will have enough control over his/her bladder and bowel movements to be able to hold it.

We recommend getting a crate to help in the potty training process. By keeping your new puppy in a confined space, it will help to quicken the potty training process. The first thing you need to do when you take your puppy out of the crate, is immediately take him/her outside to go potty.

At this point, it is crucial that you remember to always use a the same command such as: go potty, do your business, go tinkle…or whatever you choose to say. Just make sure that you are not changing the potty training command up, because this will only confuse your new puppy. As your puppy learns his need to be outside to go potty, you can gradually give him more and more freedom to roam in your home.

A regular feeding schedule is also very important for your new puppy. Feeding in the morning and in the evening time is always a good method, but we do recommend taking away his food between meals.

Like people, puppies need to potty first thing in the morning….so, when your new puppy wakes up, slip on your house shoes and take him/her outside.  During the day we recommend taking your puppy outside at least once an hour and after naps. And always remember to take him/her outside before bed time or before leaving them alone for an extended period of time.

Also, try to always take your new puppy to the same spot to do his/her business. Their scent will help prompt them to go.

Always stay outside with your puppy, at least until they are completely house broken.

And most importantly, always, always, always, praise your puppy when they do their business outside. This can be by acting all excited and petting them or by giving them a puppy treat. Puppies will respond well to positive behavior and once they connect the praise that they are getting is connected with them doing their business, you job is done!
