Every dog needs to be trained in the house, and the process is quite long. Just like during our childhood we never used proper toilet, even the dogs may do toilet on carpets. So, they must never be scolded.

Dog house training requires you to be extremely attentive and do a lot of work, thus making it one of the toughest techniques of dog training. You may believe that the dog will bark when he needs the toilet, but if you are not lucky enough to have such a dog, then be prepared to have an accident with the results showing all over the house! So, it is always better that you learn to read your dogís body language.

Dog training is quite simple and requires you to follow quite a few steps. However, it is, as already said, time consuming. To start with, it is best to put a newspaper at the door, so that when you find your dog doing one of those accidents in the house, you can immediately take him there. That way your dog learns to do it on the paper the next time he needs to do, without your help.

For your house training, you need to know that when your dog wants to toilet, he would tend to get restless and start sniffing around the place. At this point you must pick up your dog and take him outside. If it is a young puppy, then you must make sure to take him out every hour, for at least once. After taking your dog out, you need to give him the command you wish to use during the training, such as ìdo the toiletî or ìdo your businessî.  Now, the dog must be appreciated for following your commands and thus you must give him lots of affection after he has done his work (since it is always better to wait till he is finished!). This would help in making your dog realize that the place to do it is outside, and soon you would find him asking you to take him out when he needs to do it.

There are a number of training techniques and routines that you may use to train your dog at home. You can learn them from the hundreds of books available these days. It must be borne in mind that dogs have to be taught to do toilet outside, as no dog knows it by himself. So, you must teach your dog in case you do not want accidents in your house, and do remember to clean up the mess.
