Training a Puppy: Toilet Training & Classes

Training a Puppy: Toilet Training & Puppy School

To ensure you and your puppy live a happy life together, training is essential and should start as early as possible.

How to train your puppy with puppy classes

A great way to get your puppy started on the right paw, Puppy School classes are perfect for pups who are aged eight to 16 weeks and had their second round of vaccinations.

Many PETstock stores offer Puppy School classes, all teaching:

  • Basic obedience commands (‘sit’, ‘drop’, ‘come’, ‘watch’, ‘stay’ and ‘on your mat’)
  • What ‘mouthing’ means and how to teach acceptable behavior
  • How to stop your puppy from jumping up
  • How to keep your puppy’s environment entertaining and enriching

The classes are kept small to ensure your pup can retain attention, but large enough to learn essential socialisation skills. PETsock’s Puppy School trainers only teach positive reinforcement techniques and use healthy treats to reward your fur baby. Find Puppy School classes near you

Puppy destroying your favourite things?

Sometimes puppies need a little encouragement to play with their own toys. It’s important that, when giving your puppy new toys, only give a few at a time and change it up as often as you can. This will also help reduce any boredom induces destruction!

We love the Classic Puppy Kong and BecoBone.

House training / toilet training puppies

Many people prefer to have their pets live indoors with them, which calls for some essential house training.

  • Puppy training pads are a great way to start indoor toilet training, as they encourages your pup to relieve themselves in one spot. Shop puppy training pads
  • Take them out after each meal and after naps once your puppy is old enough to make regular trips outdoors
  • Reward them with lots of praise and a healthy snack when your pup successfully goes to the toilet.

Eventually, they’ll get the idea that going to the toilet outside, rather than indoors, is the right thing to do.

Keep in mind that toilet training takes time and, just like a child, will have accidents while learning the ropes!
