When we first got our dog, he was just a little puppy who couldn’t hold his bladder for very long. We took him out often, but he would always have accidents in the house. We tried different dog training methods, but nothing seemed to work. Then, one day, we had an epiphany – what if we taught our dog to pee in the toilet?
It may sound crazy, but it worked! We started by taking our dog into the bathroom with us whenever we went. We would let him watch us as we pee in the toilet, and then we would praise him and give him a treat. We did this every time we went to the bathroom, and eventually, our dog started to understand what we were doing.
The next step was to actually put our dog on the toilet seat and help him to pee. We would hold him up and guide his stream into the toilet. At first, he would pee all over the seat, but we kept at it and eventually he started peeing in the toilet like a champ!
Now, our dog is fully housetrained and he goes to the toilet just like we do! It may sound gross, but it’s actually really convenient and it saves us a lot of time and energy that we would otherwise spend cleaning up accidents. If you’re having trouble housetraining your dog, we highly recommend giving this method a try – you might just be surprised at how well it works!
