How to stop your dog from peeing on the carpet

No matter how much you love your dog, there will be times that you want to give him good spanking when they have their "accidents" inside the house, especially on the carpet. Fortunately, you don't have to resort to hurting your pooch to instill discipline.

Here are the things you should do to prevent your dog from ruining your carpeting.

Make a regular pee and poop schedule

Just like a human baby, it's YOU who will have to adapt to your dog's pee and poop schedule. He will go when he wants or needs to go, whenever, wherever. There's little you can do about it, especially if the pup's not yet toilet-trained. As he gets older, you and your dog will be able to reach some compromise by taking note of his schedule and teaching him that it's bad to pee or poop on the carpet.

You should take note of the usual times that dogs need to relieve themselves. They tend to do it after they wake up, after every meal, after play time, after drinking lots of water, and right before bedtime. Monitor your dog's habits so you can take him out during those times when he needs to go.

Use the rewards method

Just like other trick you need to teach, toilet-training deserves a treat. So when you see your dog do his business outside, you should give him praise. It could be an affectionate rub, puppy talk, or giving him little treats.

Try using housetraining pads

Also known as piddle pads, these can be used in and out of the house. Some dogs get so used to their piddle pads that they refuse to pee or poop anywhere else!
