Teaching an Older Dog New Tricks

Thursday, January 2nd, 2014

There are many reasons why you would want to potty train an older dog to use an indoor dog potty system.

1) As dogs get older many have more difficulty walking
2) The weather outside may be intolerable for your older dog.
3) Requiring more frequent relief and you may not be able to provide that for him (due to your own schedule with work, family, etc.)

Whatever the reason, an indoor dog potty system may be the solution for you and your beloved older dog. You’ll need patience and persistence for this project.
Be extremely consistent with your schedule and keep the UGODOG potty system clean for him. Also, keep the potty system at the same spot, don’t move it around your home or place next to food or water source.
If your older dog is accustomed to going outdoors with a leash, you may want to use the leash indoors to let him know that it’s time to “go potty”. The idea is to keep as many of the old habits as possible to help him learn the new ones.
Make sure to reward your dog when he does something right. Positive reinforcement has and is an excellent tool that you can use to train your older dog.
