Is your pooch driving you crazy because he won’t stop peeing on your floors and carpets? Fret not, for it’s still possible to correct this bad behavior. Listed below are some of the things that you can do.

Play the scent card

photoDo you know why your dog keeps peeing in the same places? It’s because they’re marked with his odor. Use a carpet deodorizer or a scent he doesn’t like on the spots he usually goes to discourage him from peeing there again. Some of the scents that canines hate are lemon juice, lavender, and vinegar. If you don’t know what your dog dislikes, you’ll have to do a bit of experimenting first. Try one scent at a time. If it doesn’t work, change it. This technique is not only effective, but it’s also relatively easy to do.

Go out more often

Try taking your pooch out more frequently. Chances are, he will pee outside – if you took him there, that is. This piece of advice might seem like an obvious no-brainer, but some dog owners get so caught up with their own life that they end up neglecting their dog and don’t take them out as regularly as they should. You can’t expect them to hold it in forever!

Minimize the mess

If you can’t take your dog out that often, you can teach him to use some training pads or a litter box. Technically, your pet will still be peeing indoors, but he won’t be making as big of a mess anymore since he’ll be eliminating in just one area all the time. Make sure the litter box or training pads stay put during the toilet training process. You can move them somewhere else once he’s fully housebroken.

Practice patience

All training programs require patience, and toilet training is no exception. Your dog isn’t perfect, but he does want to please you. Don’t get upset if he makes a mistake. And believe me, there will be accidents, because your pooch is still learning. Once you’ve learned to be patient, the training process will go a lot more smoothly.
