hellooo, im a girl scout and the oldest in my troop, (im 14 the next oldest is 11) and at one of our meeting one of the parents asked me if i had any humane tips on training his daughters dog, he wants his daughters pup to understand the basic commands and how to humanely potty train/house break the pup, i told him first of all he needs to treat her with love and compassion not harshly bopin her on her rear! and to not chain her if she must be outside to use a lightweight rope, but itd be preferable to have her indoors and part of the family, he said hes tryna have her inside as much as possiable but its hard cause she doesnt mind and not potty trained. Any tips? Would help greatly!!!:D
Positive reinforcement works best with all animals including humans amazingly enough. If the dog does the right thing reward it with a treat and lost of praise that way they want to gain praise and reconnection so they want to do the right thing. I do not own a dog but took physiology so I hope it helps. Also what I did with my cat is if they show signs that they are about to pee or poop where they shouldn’t I would take then to the litter box. Maybe it’ll work the same but outside instead. But remember constant praise for right thing
