Thread: Japanese Spitz Indoor Potty Training

  1. #1

    Default Japanese Spitz Indoor Potty Training

    I'll be getting a JS puppy around December. I've done alot of research for indoor potty training systems and just havnt found a right system. I've read from articles that potty pads arent that great as some dogs 'just miss' the pad. A litter box ain't great as well!I've also done some thorough research and reviews about the Wizdog Indoor Potty System and some say they are very dissappointed. Does anyone have any ideas of how to indoor potty train a JS puppy? And have any success of this matter?

    All ideas will be appreciated.

    Is there any chance of building a doggy door?

    Do you have a backyard? Just train the pup to go outside for wees and poos.

    I've only ever done outdoor potty training, but at night I would put the puppy pads down. The would either miss or pee/poo right on the edge which was pointless anyway! At cityfarmers you can buy a fake grass in a box thing about 1 meter x 1 meter. Don't know what its called but that could come in handy! Or a dog door!

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    training a japanese spitz to go where you want is much the same as training any other dog. I'd suggest something like a cat litter box with a square of artifical lawn on top and a layer of newspaper or puppy pad underneath and reward the dog for going there. clean up with bleach and that should encourage the dog to reuse that area. clean up with bicarb soda and vinegar and lavendar oil where you don't want the puppy to go.

    are you going to be at home for much of the day with the puppy? its been a few years now, but when my parents got their JS, we were home quiet a lot, so when he would wake up or if we knew he hadn't been out in a while we would pick him up and put him on the grass and say "wee wee" and click our fingers. it only took a few weeks, and very little mishaps in the house and he would go out on his own and do his business on the grass. He is now 6years old and to this day we can say "wee wee" and click our fingers and he will know to go to the toilet.
