Potty Training Your Goldendoodle


My Goldendoodle dog urinated Inside, Now What do I do?
The issue  has been happened  and now you can’t go back after your Goldendoodle has urinated inside of the house. When your lovely Goldendoodle  companion decides to use your carpet as a toilet, it can be disturbing and confusing for both you and your doodle. You’ve got to do something about what has transpired,  but what should you do? Should you spank him or her? Should you tell him or her  no? Or will punishing him or her  damage your poor doodles’  psyche?  Never fear!  Like any other challenge,  this one is surmountable, with time, love, and a whole mountain of patience.

Step #1: Go Outside

The first thing you should do when your doodle urinates  on the carpet is to take him or her immediately  outside. Yes, that’s right, even before you clean up your doodle’s nice  mess you need to take your lovely companion out  to the yard. If you can catch your doodle and stop him or her  in the middle of its  business this is even better, because your Goldendoodle  will have enough urine  left over  for the outdoors. Taking your doodle  outside after an accident is a crucial step because your Goldendoodle  needs to associate going potty  with the great outdoors.  If your doodle immediately urinates  when you take him or her  out to the yard, its important that you  praise him or her  generously. This will give your Goldendoodle  the positive reinforcement that will make him or her  want to go  outside again to use the bathroom. Try hard to avoid scolding your dog for accidents in the house. It’s sometimes frustrating training a young puppy or retraining an adult dog,  but you must exercise restraint and be patient.  Becoming angry or upset could lead your doodle into  thinking that you hate to see elimination at all,  which could cause your dog to start hiding his or her potty all over the house. If it’s going to happen inside, you at least want it in plain sight where the mess is easily cleaned up.

Step #2: Clean the Carpet

Of course, now your next step is to clean the carpet.   If you have family members or a partner  living in the home with you, make sure to  assign one person to potty-outside duty  and the other to carpet cleaning to ensure both get done in a timely manner.  You can always make a schedule for your Goldendoodle and rotate family members to be responsible.  With children,  this teaches them responsibility for their new pet.  You want to remove the scent of the accident as completely as possible, because the scent will attract your doodle  to eliminate in the same  place again. Instead of scrubbing the spot, gently pat it with a towel to soak up the excess accident. Then use a carpet cleaning agent of your choice, usually sprayed on and left for a couple minutes. When this has soaked in, gently pat the area again. Never rub, because this will spread the scent around.

Another alternative to manual cleaner is to buy a steam cleaner. If you have multiple pets this is probably a good idea, because they also tend to track in a lot of dirt. Sometimes the cost offsets the time you would have spent manually cleaning the area.  There are many great cleaners to remove urine scents.  Visit OMAHA VACCINE COMPANY for various products.

Tips and Tricks

One thing you must remember is that small puppies have small bladders and bowels  and can not wait too long before having to use the bathroom.  Puppies have the most difficult time in the beginning at potty training.  They have to go mutiple times during the day and this is something that small puppies simply cannot help.  Their sphincter muscle has not completed in development which is why it is difficult for them to hold the urge to use the bathroom right after eating.

Make sure to feed your puppy nutrtional food such as PEDIGREE.  Make sure to place your Goldendoodle on a routine and schedule.   In addition to helping your doodle  grow to become  big and strong,  quality meals  will also help keep your growing Goldendoodle’s  system regular which will in turn help keep the  potty needs regular. High quality food also helps preserve the health of your doodle  in the long run, resulting in less vet bills and a longer life.

Just like a real baby, puppies and young adult dogs  do best when put on a schedule. Feed your Goldendoodle  at the same time(s) every day and make sure your doodle is on a potty schedule.   Reptition is the key to success!
A good basic schedule would be when you wake up in the morning;  after the first meal;  in the afternoon;  after the dinner meal and right before bedtime.  This way your doodle  will be on  a routine that feels comfortable for him or her as well as  lets your doodle  know when to do  business.

The final trick is simply to have patience. Dogs  are complex beings, not just dumb toys bought for our amusement. Like any person, all Goldendoodles  will take time to learn something new. Do NOT expect miracles over night!  Nothing will happen overnight. There will be multiple accidents  and sometimes you may want to tear out your hair. Resist the urge to swat your doodle  in frustration  and think about the fun your parents must have had potty training you.

In the end it’s simply a phase that will fade with time. Enjoy your Goldendoodle and your Goldendoodle enjoy you!
