Coming home to a clean floor is one of the most common dreams all dog lovers have, therefore, we have today the dog training pads; let’s see if they really work!
Before we start talking about dog training pads; how it works, is it effective or not, and in what age should you start training your dog on using dog training pads. We probably should talk first on how often your dog pee, and when you should worry, or consider visiting a veterinary.
Well, If you are wondering if your dog is peeing a lot or if this is normal, you are not alone. Usually, dogs pee every four to six hours (which means from 3 to 5 times per day), but this is a little bit different from how many times puppies and old dogs pee.
Typically, puppies need to pee every two hours, so we are talking about a lot of peeing in that age, but things get better with maturity and, of course, training. On the other hand, for senior dogs the peeing process can become more uncontrollable, because of certain factors, medication is one of them. Now, let’s figure out what some of those reasons are:
- Aging: Age can make dogs pee more than usual
- Marking: Usually dogs mark their homes and the places they visit with their pee.
- Overheating: Sometimes when weather changes, dogs drink more or less, so it can make the pee process not stable for some time.
- Infection: Don’t worry, it’s common between dogs, so you just vest the veterinary and he will give you the right medical course.
- Submissive or Excitement Problems: I believe we need to talk more about this:
Submissive or Excitement Problems
Some dogs are nervous, shy or even anxious dogs, some of them were born that way, and others have a history of receiving punishments for their accidents, such as peeing on someone’s feet; so they lost their self-confidence and self-esteem.
In that case, it is extremely advisable to start paying attention to your dog’s behavior, and, of course, avoid any punishing methods that may make the situations worse. In addition to that, you can check those anxiety dog training podcasts, that may help, too. But, in case you noticed that your dog’s behavior didn’t change, you probably need to visit your dog’s veterinary, and ask for advice.
On the other hand, Excitement can be a very strong reason for a dog for peeing. Typically, you can notice this while your dog is still a puppy, so if your dog gets excited when it’s play time, when you come home, or when a guest arrives; you will most probably face the same problem with them while growing up, if you didn’t address it quickly.
To avoid those accidents you need to manage its triggers at first, so you need to take playtime outdoors, if it is a hard thing to do, so you probably should make sure that your dog had the chance to pee; before he plays, meet a guest, or before you are back home.
However, and even though you used treats to manage the situation, accidents happen; therefore, using dog training pads might be the perfect solution in that situation.
