Dog defecation training

Dogs should first be trained to defecate regularly and regularly. Dogs spend most of their time indoors. If they defecate everywhere, it will bring a lot of trouble to the owner and affect indoor hygiene. Over time, it will also make people bored and lose confidence in raising dogs. Therefore, training dogs to defecate in a fixed place indoors is very important for the hygiene of families and public places. In this kind of training, we should treat our children as if they were not afraid of dirt, be patient, and not rush. A pet dog is often defecated in the kitchen. No matter how the owner taught it, it didn't work. Once, the pet dog defecated in the kitchen again. The owner couldn't help it, so he threw it out of the window. The pet dog didn't learn to defecate in a fixed place and jumped out of the window after defecating in the kitchen.

What is the abnormal excretion of dogs?

The main causes of abnormal behavior of dogs excreting in the room are disease, obedience dysuria, excitatory dysuria, dysuria caused by dissociative anxiety, etc. Of course, abnormal excretory behavior caused by the disease can be distinguished by clinical symptoms, medical history, and necessary laboratory diagnosis.

Dog defecation training

1. What is a dog's compliance dysuria

Some dogs regard crouching or urinating as welcoming or obeying people, so they often crouch or urinate when welcoming people. When someone enters the room, walks towards, or touches the dog, the dog often squats and urinates, pursing his ears, holding his tail, and lying on his side. The puppy usually shows this behavior. If the owner lets him go, this behavior forms faster. Punishment may aggravate or promote the formation of this behavior. Touching or speaking meekly to the dog can interrupt the dog's micturition behavior, but it can strengthen other behaviors. In this case, you should usually ignore the dog's behavior or change the dog's welcome behavior, such as letting the dog chase a ball or play with a toy. If this behavior is firm, you can use inverse conditional reflection. First, find out the stimuli that cause this behavior, such as people's appearance, posture, and position. Then, these stimuli are applied to the dog. If the dog stands instead of crouching, he shall be rewarded.

2. What is excitatory dysuria in dogs?

In this case, whenever the dog is excited, whether standing or squatting, it will urinate. The stimulus that causes excitement may be a state of welcome, play, or sound. For such a dog, the owner should neither punish nor touch nor talk with the dog to prevent strengthening the dog's behavior. When treating this abnormal behavior, first identify the stimulus that causes this abnormal behavior and then adjust the dog to keep quiet when this stimulus exists.

3. What is abnormal urination caused by dissociative anxiety?

After separation from the owner, the dog can defecate due to worry. The dog's behavior characterizes separation anxiety during the short separation between the owner and the dog. These behaviors show the dog's extreme attachment to the owner and follow the owner step by step. The dog is extremely energetic. When the owner returns, the welcome time is extended. When the owner is ready to go out, he shows separation anxiety in advance, such as pacing, drooling, or shaking. When the owner goes out, he often doesn't eat.

Timing of defecation training

From the first day when a pet dog comes home, it should be trained to defecate at a fixed time and place. Because the puppies cannot control defecation before the age of 3-4 months, they will defecate everywhere when the bladder is full of urine or when encountering stimulation and interference. Some puppies urinate everywhere after coming to the new owner's house. They use urine to delineate their sphere of influence in the new environment; the owner should stop this behavior immediately, lest it forms bad habits and pollute the air. Under normal circumstances, puppies should urinate 10 ~ 20 times a day and defecate more than 4 ~ 5 times.

The training dog must master the time of urination and defecation. Generally, after getting up in the morning, feeding, or going to bed at night, the puppy is more likely to want to go to the toilet after eating. Therefore, the puppy should be taken to a fixed place 10 ~ 20 minutes after eating and be encouraged when he intends to urinate and defecate. After a long time, the pet dog will understand that this is what the owner likes it to do. After eating, he will consciously go to this place to go to the bathroom. Once a pet dog goes to the bathroom where you want it, say "good" or "great" to encourage it and give it some psychological satisfaction. If it is found that the pet dog has excreted before reaching the fixed place during training, do not give too severe punishment because positive feedback should be strengthened in the process of defecation training. Praise and encouragement can make the pet dog remember where to defecate. However, during training, don't forget that the pet dog won't associate with it. Encouragement must be timely. Otherwise, the pet dog won't know why you encourage it and what it has done to make you happy.

The indoor urination training method

Newborn puppies and adult dogs should receive urination training when they come to the new environment. They can choose places that are easier to clean at home, such as toilets, balconies, etc. Suppose a pet dog is found sniffing on the indoor ground, drilling under the bed, spinning around a place, twisting his ass, collapsing his waist, standing still, or raising his hind legs. In that case, this symbolizes his action to urinate immediately. It should immediately stop his bad habit of urinating everywhere, take him to a fixed place to excrete, and pat his dog's head with his hand to show his reward.

1. Methods of urination and defecation training with newspapers

When training puppies to defecate at the beginning, after the puppies successfully defecate, do not immediately take away the newspaper stained with feces so that the smell can help the puppies remember and make them learn faster. Train at the same time every day, and finally, the pet dog will urinate at a fixed time. In addition, using a defecation agent is one of the simplest training methods. A defecation agent is a kind of spray often used to train pet dogs to defecate in a fixed place. It is developed by using the instinct of pet dogs to discharge their excrement to a place where they can smell the same smell. When it is used, it can be sprayed on the newspaper. When you find that the pet dog has the intention to urinate, don't disturb your body, but give verbal encouragement such as "really good" or "great" the first time. When the pet dog's defecation is over, it should also encourage, such as hugging and touching. The purpose is to make the pet dog like it and be willing to repeat the behavior of defecating here to get this encouragement. The pet dog can consciously urinate in the newspaper and then slowly reduce the number of newspapers until even if you shop, the pet dog can urinate accurately in the newspaper, and you will succeed.

2. train puppies to urinate in the bedpan

The bedpan should be heavier to avoid accidentally knocked over by the puppy. During training, it should be noted that the puppy should not be outside the basin. If you have a squatting pan at home, you can also use this method for training. When there is no one at home, the toilet door should not be closed tightly. There should be a space for the puppies to enter and leave freely to defecate smoothly in the bedpan.

Methods of outdoor defecation training

The time when the owner takes the puppy out for a walk every day is also the best time to train the puppy to defecate. Puppies are also more likely to want to defecate during activities. If the breeder can take the puppies out for a walk at the same time every day, they will naturally get used to solving the problem of defecation and defecation outdoors. In addition, to protect the environment, don't forget to take tools to clean up the puppy's feces when you go out. During training, the walking route should be the same every day. In addition, the route with appropriate hardness, such as sandy land, lawn, or dirt road, should be selected because the development of the puppy's feet is not complete, and the hard stone brick road or asphalt road will damage the puppy's feet and affect the normal development of the feet. In this way, when the puppy arrives at the designated place, he will want to go to the toilet instead of sniffing everywhere, so he can't complete defecation. When walking, it's best not to let the puppy have the leisure to sniff around. Let it know that only after defecation can it start to walk and play freely.

Method of defecation training in the fence

After the puppy completes the cage training, it can take advantage of its clean nature so that it will not urinate in its sleeping and eating place to conduct defecation training in the fence and learn to defecate at a fixed point. After the dog has the habit of defecating and defecating, the area covered by the newspaper can be gradually reduced. If everything goes well, you can continue to reduce the number of newspapers until you only put one newspaper. If you fail, you can repeat the previous training several times. Remove the fence. The training is completed if the puppy is still defecating on the newspaper. In the future, the puppy will be used to defecating in a fixed place with a newspaper. No matter what environment, as long as the newspaper is placed on the ground, the puppies who want to go to the toilet will naturally solve it in the newspaper. According to the feeding situation, adult dogs can be trained twice to three times a day, and puppies can be trained five to six times. Lively puppies may play or bite newspapers on the fence. At this time, the owner should resolutely stop them and don't let the puppies think they should bite newspapers on the fence. The owner tries to ignore the puppy and doesn't play with it, so it will defecate when it feels boring.
