How to potty train my 10 week old mini pin to only go outside?
I take him outside a lot during the day. He does his business outside most of the time but he still has a lot of slip ups inside the house. I don’t have a crate to crate train and wont be able to get one for a while. Also he makes noises in his throat from time to time. Whats that? He sleeps alot too. Is that bad?
A 10 week old puppy is still just a baby. They can not “hold it” like an adult dog.
Puppies pretty much eat, play, poop and sleep. Until he is at least 4 months old don’t expect him to hold it for long periods of time.
You need to have him on a schedule. Eat and 15 minutes later go outside to potty. Always, stand in the same place and give the same command… “go potty” or whatever you want to say. Make sure not to play with him until he goes potty. Once he potties outside make a HUGE deal about.. “oh good boy. good boy” The more praise the quicker they learn.
The throat thing??? That I don’t know about.. did you get him from a Pet Store?? Sometimes the dogs are thrown around by the millers that sell the dogs to the pet store and by the pet store employees. They just grab them around the neck and toss them from one cage to another. They could have hurt his neck. I have seen that before…
