Bathroom behavior

The way dogs/puppies stand differ between male and female puppies as young as 2 months of age.

Male puppies tend to stand and lean forward during urination, and female puppies squat. Male puppies usually do not begin leg lifting until they are 4 to 6 months old. Females usually continue to use a squatting posture into adulthood.

Puppies start gaining control of their bathroom functions at around several weeks of age. About this time “bathroom visits” will become more regular. However, due to a small bladder puppies will still need to go to the bathroom about 6 times per day. By the time the puppy has reached 8 weeks of age they will have much greater control of when they go. This is also the age that a young puppy will be developing preferences on where they will go.

Signaling the need to go

November 27th, 2009 1 comment

As puppies show signs of progress, they can be taught to signal to go outside. For example, a dog can be taught to nudge a bell hung on a doorknob, sometimes call a “bathroom bell” or “doggie doorbell” with its nose or paw when it needs to go outside. To do this, you should encourage the dog to touch the doorbell and should reward the dog for this accomplishment by opening the door. Repeated encouragement and reward should teach the pet to use the doorbell when it wishes to go outside. Another way to teach a puppy to signal its need to go outside is to question the dog with a key phrase (e.g. “Need to go out?”); the pet’s reaction will indicate whether it needs to or not. And some dogs can be taught to bark to signal the need to go outdoors.
