CRATE TRAINING YOUR NEW PUPPY
We offer free training treats, training book, videos and a discount on our training crates when you purchase a puppy because we want you to be successful at housebreaking your new puppy. Crate-Training is the number one veterinary recommended method of training and we have found it to be the most successful. Dogs are den dwellers in their natural state. Similar to a den, the crate provides a comfortable and secure sheltered nest for resting and sleeping.

Puppies love to snuggle in their crate with a cozy blanket and soft toys. By using a crate, you are teaching him to keep his home clean and dry and to signal you when he/she needs to go out and relieve himself.
Puppy's also love to snuggle in their crate with a cozy blanket and soft toys. Tossing their blanket in the dryer before bedtime can also be an extra treat.
Puppies will not eliminate in what is known to be their "den" (Crate).
Your puppy should be kept in their crate with the door closed only at night or when you make a short trip away to the grocery store or when picking the kids up from school, no longer than 1 to 3 hours at a time.
The crate you use should only be large enough to stand up and comfortably turn around in. If it is any larger, he will sleep at one end and eliminate at the other. In order to be successful at house training your pet, you must be consistent, use simple voice commands and lots of praise and treats appropriate for your pets age.
Don't give up too easily!
Stick with your plan, whether it be newspaper, training pads or using puppy litter most puppies are ready to be housebroken at 7 to 8 weeks.
If you obtained your puppy at an early age, you may want to consider keeping it in a small room with no carpet.
A bathroom, laundry room, or a closed off part of the kitchen may be suitable until the puppy is housebroken. Keep the crate door open while you are away and their food and water bowl close by.
Keep newspaper or training pads down on the floor when unattended because they will need an alternative place to eliminate while you are away.
You may also want to leave the door of the crate open during the day so that your puppy can go in his den when he wants some rest time.
Keep your puppy on a feeding schedule when you are at home. If you know when he eats, you will know when he needs to go potty.
Many times we become busy talking on the phone, watching T.V. or cooking and do not notice that our puppy has eaten or had a lot to drink.
That leaves the door open for them to go and find their own potty place.
To avoid accidents keep the food and water bowl up on the counter until feeding time.
You should offer your puppy food and water at least once every 2 1/2 to 3 hours, if you notice he/she is not hungry as often. You can move the time up to every 4 hours.
During house training, use dry dog food only.
Dry dog food will make their stool hard and firm and easier to pick up in case of an accident.
Your puppy needs to be taken to relieve himself: first thing in the morning, 10 to 30 minutes after every meal, every time he wakes up from a nap, and one last time before getting in his crate at night.
DON'T LET YOUR PUPPY HAVE RUN OF THE HOUSE!
This is one of the biggest mistakes new puppy owner's make, put your puppy in a playpen when unattended. Playpens are also great for training puppies durring the winter.
THIS IS THE TYPE OF PUPPY PLAYPEN WE USE TO TRAIN OUR PUPPIES
We take the puppies out of their sleeping crate early in the morning and immediatly place them into a puppy playpen. Their playpen has a training pad in the corner and they immediatly go right to it.

SEPARATE POTTY TIME FROM PLAYTIME
Let your puppy out 15 minutes prior to the children going out to play. Give them an opportunity to relive themselves in their potty area first, give them lots of praise and a treat.
When you let them out say simple voice commands with phrases like......
Go Potty! , Potty Time! / Tinkle Time! Go Outside!, etc...
The consistency of those simple words help them learn what you expect out of them and what earns them a treat or playtime with the kids or family.
When the children go out to play they don't follow them to their play area to relive themselves or become distracted as to why they are outside.
When the family or children come out shortly after, they sometimes feel it is part of their reward and they now get to have fun!
Ringing a bell, blowing a whistle or making a distinctive sound is also a great help.
They pick up on it very quickly and once they have learned that sound.
You can hang a bell at the door and they will slap at it with their paws to let you know they wan to go out to potty.
For Family and New Puppy
The first week at home can be a little scary and sometimes stressful for new puppies. They are learning a lot of new unfamiliar faces & sounds.
Stop giving your puppy food and water at least 2 to 3 hours before bedtime.
We do recommend that you place 1/2 a teaspoon of nutrical or nutristat in their food & water dish before bedtime to keep their sugar level up thru the night.
Do not put food or water in a closed crate, it will cause them to wake you up in the night.
Do not send your puppy to bed on a full stomach or bladder.
Do not put your puppy in his/her crate until you are ready to turn off the lights. They may feel as if they are being punished or neglected and will cry for attention.
Putting your puppy in his/her crate should be the very last thing you do before going to bed.
Once they are inside the crate, close the door and turn off the lights.
Your puppy will soon start waking you up early in the morning just like an alarm clock to let you know he needs out.
