One of the most frequent questions adopters ask us is, “How do I potty train my new puppy”? Thankfully, the Miniature Husky is a very smart dog, and training isn’t very difficult. Here are a few helpful puppy potty training tips that should make your life much easier once your puppy comes home:
Set Up a Feeding Schedule for Your Miniature Husky Puppy
Your puppy should have access to food and water at regular intervals throughout the day. Your puppy will probably want to go to the bathroom shortly after eating or drinking, usually about 15 minutes. If you time bathroom breaks with feeding schedules, the puppy potty training process should go much more smoothly.
Feed Your Miniature Husky Puppy Quality Puppy Food
Most owners don’t realize that a poor quality food can cause a puppy to have an upset stomach. A puppy with an upset tummy may not be able to properly hold his or her bowel movements. This is frustrating for the puppy and the owner. We recommend Royal Canin Mini Puppy Dry Dog Food for all our Miniature Siberian Husky Puppies.
It’s easy to make the dry food more attractive to your puppy by adding a small amount of Meyenburg Powdered Goat Milk to the dry food, along with some water to moisten it up. This also helps to keep your puppy’s digestive system in tip top shape.
Prevent Miniature Husky Puppy Potty Training Mistakes
One of the best ways to prevent puppy potty training errors is to make it almost impossible for your puppy to use the potty in the wrong place. Crate training is an effective tool for achieving this. When your puppy is not attended, he or she is placed in a crate with a special toy or bone. This crate is your puppy’s den and he or she shouldn’t want to use the potty while staying in there. Of course, your puppy should not spend a long time in the crate, or an accident will occur. A Pet Nation Indoor/Outdoor Puppy Crate is a great portable option for crate training. It’s designed to be affordable and to fit dogs and puppies up to 25lbs in size.
Puppy potty training isn’t rocket science. Every puppy is different, and some pups learn faster than others, but if you’re patient and consistent, puppy potty training shouldn’t take too much time at all.
