Potty training a dog is the process of teaching your dog to relieve himself wherever you want. If you don’t want to be busy picking up piles and removing dog urine stains from the carpet, you need to potty train him. You need to give your dog freedom outside or in your apartment where he can relieve himself naturally and you don’t have to worry about the mess.
In this article, we will discuss different aspects of potty training adult dogs.
Dog potty training with crate
The most effective method of potty training dogs involves the use of a crate. The dog is an intelligent and clean animal. They prefer to keep the place where they sleep clean.
After the first 2 weeks of training, your dog will learn what is expected of him in terms of bathroom habits. Your dog should go to the crate to rest, use the designated potty spot.

Important tips on dog training
1. You must be in contact with your dog throughout the day
2. You must recognize the signs that your dog needs to use the bathroom so that you can immediately take him to the place where you want him to go to the bathroom, give him the command and praise his successes. Always use the same command as “go pee” and don’t play with it that time.
