Puppies need to go torepparttar bathroom after they play, chew, drink, eat or sleep. Start by putting them on a leash and tethering them to you. That way you can be aware of them when they start sniffingrepparttar 149983 ground (usually a cuerepparttar 149984 puppy needs to go potty). Pick them up and carry them outside. When they go potty, tell them "good potty" and give a cookie as a reward. Do not let your puppy off leash until they have finished going so they get intorepparttar 149985 habit of going potty, then playing. Many puppies will want to go outside just to play if you let them off leash first.

What if my puppy has an accident? He will. Do not punish your puppy though. If you catch your puppy inrepparttar 149986 act then clap your hands or pick them up - this will make your puppy stop going. Get him outside FAST and let him finish up out there. Reward him for going outside. Clean uprepparttar 149987 mess with petzorb which will removerepparttar 149988 odor completely. Do NOT rub their nose in it, swat them with a newspaper, or isolate your puppy. It will only teach them to not go in front of you.

The Ethical Responsible puppy Buyer

Written by Pixiedust Papillons & Phalenes

The responsible, ethical BUYER We certainly hear and read multitudes of opinions of what makes a responsible papillon or phalene dog breeder (and many times those opinions are biased byrepparttar writers' backgrounds in papillons or phalenes). Rarely do you see any articles on what makes a responsible BUYER of papillons or phalenes. Many buyers complain that they never hear back from a papillon or phalene breeder, whenrepparttar 149948 buyer inquires about buying a papillon or phalene puppy for a pet. Good papillon and phalene breeders spend massive amounts of time learning about their breed, their bloodlines and host of other things in order to breedrepparttar 149949 best papillons and phalenes. So what does a quality breeder of papillons and phalenes expect from potential buyers? A buyer should never write and state " do you have papillon or phalene puppies for sale now and how much are they"? The breeder will not have a papillon or phalene puppy for this buyer, sincerepparttar 149950 buyer has given no indication of what they are looking for in a papillon or phalene puppy. Most breeders have so many requests, that they really will not wasterepparttar 149951 time to reply with a list of questions that they need answered in order to properly respond torepparttar 149952 buyer's request--especially when most breeder's websites already carry a list of those questionsrepparttar 149953 papillon or phalene breeder needs to have answered byrepparttar 149954 buyer. Breeders of quality papillons and phalenes will usually avoid a buyer who enthusiastically states that they are eager to learn and "have hundreds of questions". If you have that many questions about papillon or phalene dogs and puppies, then you have not done enough research--because there are a host of websites, books and videos available to help answer most of those questions. Some breeders, like here at Pixiedust Papillons and Phalenes, go to a great deal of time and trouble to provide a website to help answer questions new buyers may have. And responsible buyers will have done this research before asking a breeder for one of their puppies. A papillon or phalene breeder is just that--a breeder. They will be spending time with their dogs, shows, competitions, seminars and even building large website just to answer questions, they will not haverepparttar 149955 time or evenrepparttar 149956 ability to give a potential buyer all their accumulated knowledge in an email. Ifrepparttar 149957 buyer is too lazy to learn a few things on their own, they will most likely not be a candidate for a well bred puppy. Asrepparttar 149958 breeder will perceive such a buyer as one also too lazy to take proper time and care of a papillon or phalene puppy. Ethical papillon and phalene puppy breeders are expected to take responsibility for every puppy they produce by providing a "lifetime return policy" ifrepparttar 149959 buyer cannot keeprepparttar 149960 puppy for what ever reason. It is time for BUYERS to be ethical and responsible and to make a lifetime commitment torepparttar 149961 papillon or phalene puppy that they buy. NO good breeder wants to sell a puppy to a person who wants to dodge their responsibility as pet owner. It does not matter if you have difficulty trainingrepparttar 149962 dog, have to move or get a new job or have a divorce--as a buyer, YOU have a responsibility to care forrepparttar 149963 pet you bought. The breeder did not 'rent'repparttar 149964 puppy to you--you boughtrepparttar 149965 dog! Only underrepparttar 149966 most extreme circumstances should a buyer ever have to askrepparttar 149967 breeder to take back a puppy.
