Dog Quickly Shows Owner How Effective Months Of Potty Training
A new puppy is all fun and games, until he starts urinating in places he shouldn’t.
In a viral clip that has eight million views, TikTok user @kimcasv can be seen rolling a large cream rug across the floor. She is soon joined by Cleo, a bichon frize, who then decides to pee on the carpet, leaving Kim in shock.
She added the following text to the video: “bringing my mat back after months of training my dog not to pee inside”.
Newsweek contacted Jen Walmsley, a dog trainer, who shared the following potty training tips:
- Take them out every 1-2 hours during the day and make sure that every time they wake up from a nap, or before putting them in their crate, they have a chance to go to the bathroom.
- Avoid using puppy pads, as this will teach them to go on your indoor carpets and upholstery.
- Don’t scold them if they have an accident, just take them outside to make the association. Try not to distract them while waiting for them to leave and praise them a lot when they do.
UK-based Walmsley, who has five years’ experience, said Newsweek it can also be cleaning products.
She said: “If dog owners don’t use an enzymatic cleaner they can still smell ammonia making them want to mark in the same spot. It gets more pungent over time and the more they mark. over there.”
The American Kennel Club states that Bichon Frize dogs are generally eager to please, so they can be trained. However, that might not be the case for Cleo.
Previously, Newsweek shared a viral clip of a dog trainer who pointed out dogs to avoid as a first-time dog owner. The list included a husky, a pit bull and a rottweiler as they all need extensive training.
The popular video racked up 852,000 likes, along with many popular comments which also racked up hundreds of thousands of likes.
The top comment has 89,000 likes, it read, “Noooo. She knew what she was doing.”
Another with over 40,000 likes said, “I swear they do it on purpose.”
“YOU HAVEN’T EVEN FINISHED UNROLL IT,” another person pointed out.
“From a dog trainer: Happens girl. Sending you patience HAHA,” another person posted.
It seems that this TikTok video is not the only one that has caught the attention of thousands of people. Previously, Newsweek shared the time a puppy’s training went horribly wrong.
