HARTZ® makes dog training easy with
Hartz® Home Protection™ Training Pads
Housebreaking a dog with training pads is simple with these steps:
- Unfold and place pad, blue plastic side down, in a confined area.
- Place your puppy or dog on the pad several times so it can smell the pad and get used to it Keep in mind that your puppy must relieve itself every few hours on average based on his age (a 2 month old puppy every 2 hours, 3 month old every 3 hours etc ...)
- If your pet relieves itself somewhere else, bring him back to the pad immediately. Continue bringing your pet back to the pad to reinforce that this is the place to soil.
- While your dog is eliminating on the pad, use phrases like “go potty” so that eventually you can use the command and your dog will understand what it means.
- When the dog relieves himself on the pad, praise him lavishly and reward him with a treat. Treating is key to training success because as it is the only way your dog will understand that he is doing what you want him to do.
- Dispose of soiled pads and replace as needed.
- Once your pet has learned to relieve himself on the pad, gradually begin moving the pad closer to the door and finally outdoors to complete the training process.
Hartz® Home Protection™ Training Pads are ideal for puppies and dogs that stay indoors
