You have a puppy at home. He is cute and charming, eats funny and runs very touchingly around the apartment, stumbling and catching his own tail. He still has to be educated, trained and trained, but the very first thing to accustom the baby to is to relieve his needs not at home on the rug, but on the street. How can this be done?

puppy, doormats and newspapers, patience
First, there is no need to rush into this. If your puppy is still very small, you need to give him all the mandatory vaccinations, and only then take him out into the yard. The fact is that many causative agents of deadly dog diseases persist on the street. And getting infected with them at such a tender age does not mean absolutely anything good for your puppy. Be sure to talk to the veterinarian, he will explain in detail after which vaccinations the dog can go outside and walk there without hindrance. Until that time, clean up the puddles in the hallway.
When the baby reaches the age at which he can go out, start teaching him to go to the toilet there. Dogs are very smart and clean animals, they themselves do not like it when the house is dirty and there are foreign odors. Just show your puppy that there is an alternative to his favorite bed rug or bathroom floor! Small dogs go to the toilet 10 minutes after they eat or drink, so it is best to take them outside immediately after feeding.
Be sure to reward your little one when he goes to the bathroom outside. Let him understand that this is exactly what needs to be done. Over time, the dog will develop a persistent reflex and she will learn to endure and ask to go outside. By the way, learn to pay attention to the signals your puppy is giving you. Perhaps he is showing that he wants to go to the toilet, only you have not yet learned to notice it. In different dogs, such hints appear in different ways: some gaze intently into the eyes of the owners, others begin to whine at the door, and still others just lie down at the exit and patiently wait for you to guess what is wrong. Each puppy needs a special approach.
