To teach the dog, in the apartment you can ask for help from a dog handler, who will give detailed recommendations on how to organize the process correctly and prevent serious mistakes. Have to be patient. If you hurry and punish a puppy, it will affect his behavior, which then will have to be adjusted for a long time with a professional.
The baby should be taught to go to the toilet in the diaper from the first day of its appearance in your home. If the animal was purchased in a good nursery, it is possible that the breeder has already begun to teach the puppy to the toilet, which will simplify your task.
You should take home a diaper to which the puppy wrote, which will help him understand where to go to the toilet.
Initially, the floor of the room where the puppy has access (for example, at first it may be one room of the apartment or a corridor), should be closed as far as possible with diapers, effectively depriving him of the possibility to use the toilet on a smooth floor.
Every week, their number should be reduced (by 1-2 pieces), removing those that remain clean (it is better to do this imperceptibly when the puppy is sleeping or playing). And when left alone, it will have to be gradually moved to the place where the pet’s toilet will be, or put in a special tray designed for such purposes (this week you can move a maximum of 50 cm).
