Housetrain your dog or puppy

Housetrain your dog or puppy

Housetraining your dog or puppy requires far more than a few stacks of old newspapers—it calls for vigilance, patience, plenty of commitment and above all, consistency. By following the guidelines outlined below, you can minimize house-soiling incidents. Virtually every dog, especially puppies, will have an accident in the house, and more likely, several. Expect this—it’s part of living with a puppy. The more consistent you are in following the basic housetraining procedures, the faster your puppy will learn acceptable behavior. It may take several weeks to housetrain your puppy, and with some of the smaller breeds, it might take longer.

The schedule teaches him that there are times to eat, times to play and times to potty. Generally speaking, a puppy can control his bladder one hour for every month of age. So if your puppy is two months old, he can hold it for about two hours. Don’t go longer than this between bathroom breaks, or he’s guaranteed to have an accident. If you work outside the home, this means you’ll have to hire a dog walker to give your puppy his bathroom breaks. Take your puppy outside frequently—at least every two hours—and immediately after he wakes up, during and after playing, and after eating or drinking.

Pet owners blame popular treats for dog deaths | 6ABC

This is why Pets Plus Natural is 100% committed to sourcing all of our treats from reputable US-based manufacturers.  We don’t stock or sell “Made In China” treats because our pets are part of our families too.  Shop with confidence at our stores and please keep these people who lost their beloved pets in your thoughts and prayers. A popular pet treat is being blamed for deaths of more than 1,000 dogs but an Action News Investigation has found that some of these treats were on still on the shelves in spite of an FDA warning about possible dangers. Then just a few miles down the road and one month later, Tammy Marshall says she fed her 10-year-old Chihuahua Gidget two Authority brand chicken jerky treats that were made in Thailand. “She’s in here and she’s wagging her little tail and I opened the treats and I gave her one. She came running back around and I gave her that second treat and that was the last thing she ate,” said Marshall. The owner of a German Shepard named Maggie from Alberta, Canada also says her dog got seriously ill after eating Authority treats in December, but fortunately did not die. Both Marshall and Popolizio say they complained to PetSmart. However when we went undercover, we found that the chicken jerky treats from Thailand were still stocked on store shelves across our area – in Philadelphia, New Jersey and Delaware.   Curated from Investigation: Pet owners blame popular treats for dog deaths | 6abc.com...
