How To Train A Dog To Pee Outside


When you bring home a puppy, you are basically bringing home a small child who can’t talk and still has to be potty trained. While getting your new family member used to peeing outside can be daunting, it’s not impossible. All it takes is patience, consistency and routine. If you’re having trouble coaching your little pup on where to go potty, take a deep breath and follow these steps:

Puppies can be hard to housebreak, but it can be done.

>Puppies are harder to housebreak than adult dogs, but it can be done. The key is keeping them inside until they’re old enough to hold their bladder and bowels long enough for you to take them outside. Puppies have smaller bladders than adults, so if you let them out once a day and then leave the rest of the time, they’ll learn quickly that going outside means being let back in.

If your puppy gets into trouble while you’re gone, don’t punish him when he comes back inside; rather, just ignore him or give him a treat as soon as possible after his accident so that he knows that coming back inside will lead to something positive (like getting some attention).

The most important thing you can do is create a routine and stick with it.

The most important thing you can do is create a routine and stick with it. This will help your dog understand the expected behavior, and make it easier for him to remember what he’s supposed to do.

Set a specific time of day for your dog to go outside. Make this time consistent every day, so that your dog knows when it’s time to go out—and if he doesn’t want his activity interrupted, he’ll have no choice but to hold it until then!

Make sure there’s enough time for him to go outside before you leave in the morning and after you get home at night. If there isn’t any time left in between those times because of other obligations or responsibilities (like going back into bed after getting up early), then either schedule those things earlier or later on certain days (or only on weekends), or adjust accordingly based on how long each trip takes.

If you notice that __________ went inside without going outside first, don’t punish them by making them wait longer before letting them out again! Punishing dogs won’t help them learn what they’re supposed to do; instead just give them more attention when they follow through successfully instead of punishing them when they don’t follow through successfully (which will actually make learning harder).

Give your puppy a lot of exercise – this will help with their bladder control

The best way to keep your dog’s bladder under control is to make sure he has plenty of exercise. Exercise helps to control the bladder, and it’s also good for their overall health and mental wellbeing. Exercise will help them burn off excess energy, relieve stress, maintain good muscle tone and more!

Crate training is also helpful for potty training

As you train your dog to pee outside, it’s important to keep the house and yard clean. Crate training is also helpful for potty training because it provides a safe place for your puppy when you can’t watch them or aren’t home. Your dog will be much more likely to use the bathroom in their crate if they know that doing so means going back inside their crate after they’re done. Once your puppy has been successfully crate trained, they’ll have learned not only where to go when they need to eliminate, but also how rewarding it feels after using the bathroom!

The best way that I’ve found professionals recommend keeping dogs out of trouble is by keeping them out of trouble! For example: If you have children living with pets at home then make sure these kids are being supervised while playing together outside (especially if there’s something nearby like an electrical cord). Even better yet would be making sure everyone realizes what could happen if someone touches anything dangerous without first checking its safety status first (like checking whether electricity is turned off).

Be positive! Dogs love positive reinforcement for good behavior 🙂

  • Use positive reinforcement when you train your dog. This means giving them a treat or patting them on the head when they go outside, instead of using negative reinforcement like yelling at them or hitting them with a rolled-up newspaper if they pee in the house.
  • Dogs love to be petted, so give some extra attention when you’re training them! They won’t forget that positive association with going outside in no time flat!

With patience (and a few treats) your dog will learn how to pee outside quickly

  • Your dog is smart and will learn quickly. With patience and consistency, your dog will learn to pee outside.
  • Be patient. Dogs’ brains develop at a slower rate than humans’, so it’s okay if they’re not getting it right away. Just keep reinforcing the idea that peeing outside IS the correct behavior, and eventually he’ll connect the dots!
  • Be consistent with praise for going outside! If you never reward him for doing what we want him to do (go outside), then how can we expect him to continue doing it? When he goes outside, make sure you immediately praise him with positive reinforcement and give him a treat or other reward (be careful not to give too many treats—too much food isn’t good for dogs either).


It’s important to remember that this process can take weeks—or months, depending on the dog. Training a dog is an ongoing process, and it takes a lot of patience and consistency to get your puppy to pee outside. If you’re finding that your dog isn’t responding well to the methods outlined above, don’t give up! Keep trying these techniques on a regular basis until they work for both you and your pup. And if you still aren’t having any luck after several more attempts at training with these methods, contact a professional trainer who specializes in potty training puppies!
