Housebreaking Your Siberian Husky Puppy

HOUSEBREAKING GUIDE– Confine the Siberian Husky puppy to a small area such as a training crate, half bath, or laundry room. This area should not be larger than 4 x 4 square and have a tile or linoleum floor, NOT carpet, NOT hardwood, and NOT concrete as these are porous and will stain and cause odor. Do not close the door to this area, use a childproof gate so that the Siberian Husky puppy can see out. Provide a variety of rawhides and toys for the Siberian Husky puppy and a bed or blanket for comfort. Do not put newspaper/ wee wee pads on the floor unless you want to litterbox train the Siberian Husky puppy. When the Siberian Husky puppy has an accident, NEVER hit the Siberian Husky puppy with your hand or newspaper, or stick his nose in the mess. Instead, verbally correct the Siberian Husky puppy using the words, NO, BAD DOG in a loud, authoritative voice. When cleaning accidents, in the house do not use vinegar or ammonia products as these smell the same to the Siberian Husky puppy as urine and will cause the Siberian Husky puppy to repeat these mistakes. Instead, use Natures Miracle or club soda as this will neutralize the odor. The Siberian Husky puppy needs to be walked FIRST THING IN THE MORNING, AFTER EACH MEAL, and LAST THING BEFORE BED, typically, 4-5 times daily at first. Since the Siberian Husky puppy does not know how to walk on a leash, you must carry the Siberian Husky puppy at first. Bring the Siberian Husky puppy to one spot in the yard or curb, no long walks around the block. If the Siberian Husky puppy makes outside, praise the Siberian Husky puppy verbally (no dog treats as this will cause more bowel movements). If the Siberian Husky puppy does not go outside after about ten minutes, return him inside and wait until the next scheduled walk. The Siberian Husky puppy may come out of his area only for short periods of time, when you can watch him, but is not allowed to run free through the house.
