How to Potty Train an Iowa Chow Chow Puppy, Shih Tzu Puppy or Sheltie Puppy
Potty training can be easy when bearing a few things in mind.
1. Diet, feeding dry pet food Kibble, while convenient, will make your pet harder to potty break. Almost 60% of Kibble dog food contains ingredients are items the dogs Gut is unable to digest and break down. Thus the stool volume vastly increases.
2. Feeding dry pet food Kibble causes the dog to drink more water as it needs to hydrate the dry food so it will pass through the Gastro Intestinal System. This water needs to be eliminated and eventually comes out as urine. More water in, more urine.
3. Feeding dry pet Kibble overloads a dog's system with carbohydrates, which the dog's system is not equiped to handle, causing health issues. A dog is a Carnivore. Requires only meat, fat, and bones. Can thrive without carbohydrates and fiber.
We recommend Species Appropriate Raw Feeding of meat , bones and animal organs (heart, liver and gizzards). This is all 100% natural and will allow the dog's organs and system to work as it was designed. The result will be a healthier dog with fewer health issues and increased longevity.
Be advised, If initially using pee pads for in house training for conveience or due to winter weather, your older and mature puppy will not automatically understand and start pottying outside, and outside potty training will have to be taught anew.
An alternative way to Potty Break a dog that is home alone
Sometimes it is not possible to be around to let you dog out to go to potty. It is the number one reason dogs are surrendered and end up in shelters as people are unable or unwilling to teach their puppy what to do. A puppy looks to it's master for direction. If you do not give direction, the puppy will not know what is expected of him/her and problems will result.
It can be as easy as using the technique described in this Video.
