How to Potty Train Your Puppy Fast

If you’re trying to potty train fast you’ll need to be available to let your pup out every hour of the day. If you have the right schedule and a puppy who’s an especially quick learner, potty training can be accomplished in seven to fourteen days. We want to stress, however, that this is not the norm.

Don’t go into potty training expecting a quick solution. The best way to speed up potty training is with positive reinforcement. Incorporate frequent potty breaks and stay with your pup at all times to monitor for signals they need to go out.

How to toilet train a puppy without a garden

When youve got a puppy in an apartment, getting them out in time can be a challenge! Therefore, its even more important to recognise the signs when your pup is trying to let you know they need to go!

Identify a suitable toilet area that you can get to quickly and easily – no matter what time of day.

Taking them out every hour can help as it gives your puppy more opportunities to get it right and get rewarded for that behaviour. Set a timer for every hour as a reminder so you dont forget!

If you have no access at all to a suitable outdoor space, you can train them to use a litter tray or puppy pads in the same way that indoor cats will always toilet inside
