For the fastest route to success, choose a method that fits your lifestyle and stick with it…every day…every time..without fail. What I mean by lifestyle is indoor or outdoor housetraining, and housebreaking schedules to suit different lifestyles (working owners, non-working owners, etc), You will get a better understanding of this, as we go on.
Indoor Verses Outdoor
The German Shepherd is a breed that can be kept in an apartment, but much prefers living where he has a fenced yard for exercise.We know that there are sometimes extenuating circumstances, in which outdoor housebreaking will not be feasible. So the potty training methods in this video hold true to both indoor and outdoor house training.
So the very first thing is that, You must carefully choose the designated bathroom area, either inside or outside. You see when you bring your new puppy or adult dog home, they will have no clue as to where to eliminate. So it is your job to show them. Simply ‘outside’ will not be sufficient. For example, your dog will become very confused if led out to the front yard one day, and the back yard the next. It’s best to choose a specific area, whether you chose inside or outside. Remember, consistency is key. While you will choose the bathroom area, allow your German Shepherd puppy to pick the perfect spot within that area. Stand in the middle of it and allow your dog to sniff around, and decide exactly where he would like to go. When a puppy or dog has a choice in the matter, he does much better. When your puppy or dog is shown the same routine over and over, even the most stubborn dog will learn what is expected.
If your German Shepherd is not taken outside at the proper times and not often enough, house training is doomed to fail. It will be up to you to offer use of the bathroom to your dog. Therefore, taking him or her outside on a regular schedule will be very important.
Crate training is not House Training
