When you have to leave your puppy home alone, always keep her confined to any puppy playroom having an indoor “doggy bathroom.”
Being kept in the game room with an indoor doggy toilet avoids your dog from getting rid of in other parts of the house–something that can quickly are a bad habit.
Elements of the good playroom
A good game room has:
* easy-to-clean, non-absorbent floors and gets a lot of targeted traffic from the family, so the pup won’t come to feel isolated.
* a checkpoint or an exercise pencil so you can cordon off a compact section of the room
* a comfortable dog crate or bed
* a dish of fresh water
* plenty of hollow chewtoys or dog brain games filled up with dog food or treats
* a good doggy toilet inside corner opposite your crate or bedding.
To make one of these “indoors doggie toilets,” cover a litter box, a metal tray (such as a extractible crate bottom), or perhaps old piece of linoleum with whatever is usually the dog’s eventual toilet material. For countryside and suburban young dogs, for instance, you might lay down a roll connected with turf. For elegant puppies, use a couple of thin concrete porcelain tiles. Perhaps this goes without saying, but be sure to fresh off and disinfect the finish regularly.
You don’t wish to use things like blankets, linen or carpet if you can’t want your pup to visit the bathroom on your quilts, towels and carpeting.
