Are Japanese Spitz easy to potty train?

Are Japanese Spitz easy to potty train? Whether your Japanese Spitz is a puppy or an adult dog, you will definitely have some accidents to clean up. Unfortunately, it’s a very long training process for you, especially if you don’t have Spitz.

How to train Japanese Spitz to use the toilet?

You should always bring your Japanese Spitz with you during toilet training. If you can’t watch carefully, consider training in crates, or using fences, laundries or bathrooms as safe places. It’s usually a pleasure, because most dogs don’t have enough motivation to just praise or play. Bring your food with you at any time so you can get a reward in seconds. We have some new training techniques. Take your dog out every hour. Repetition and coherence are the key. You have more opportunities, you can reward proper behavior, and your puppy will ‘get it’ faster. If your dog last went to the toilet in the right place for 24 hours, it will take longer to learn. Be patient, consistent and avoid punishment. Punishing your dog after an accident doesn’t teach him anything. It just scares you. If there’s an accident, move on and try to take your puppy out more often.


Use Japanese Spitz pad

Many people advocate using Japanese Spitz training pads on the floor or in newspapers to teach your dog the right place to go. Once you get them to use the toilet there, you can start to bring them closer and closer to the door. While this will work, you will have to teach your dogs to use pads, then they need to relearn and they need to start going out. It’s much easier to do what you want to do for the first time than to teach two different things. The main advantage of these absorbent pads is that they make cleaning easier, so when your puppy is crated, or in his study, playground or laundry, you can put a puppy pad down to absorb any confusion.

How do I know my Japanese Spitz needs to go to the bathroom?

Little Japanese Spitz needs to go to the bathroom more than an adult dog. They have small bladders and no instinct for persistence. Older Japanese Spitz usually wakes up, 10-20 minutes after eating, drinking and playing, and sometimes goes to the toilet outside. Don’t think your dog will go to the bathroom outside unless they have learned to. You may only need to take an adult Japanese Spitz out for 2 hours, while the little Japanese Spitz needs to take out every hour to avoid mistakes. Some early warning signs of urination or defecation are hovering and sniffing on the ground. When your dog needs to go to the bathroom, it’s easier to pick it up if you watch it carefully or if your dog is with you all the time.

Setting the alarm clock for Japanese Spitz

In the early stages of training, set a timer or alarm clock on your mobile phone to remind you to take your little Japanese Spitz or adult Japanese Spitz out every 1-2 hours. If there is an accident, increase the frequency. This is the key to training your dog in 3 days. Repetition is the key.

Use the tether

If you work from home, one of the best ways is to tie the dog to your belt or to a chair. If your puppy is roaming freely, chances are you won’t see the warning signs that he needs to get out.


Cue word

To encourage you to use the toilet under orders, you don’t need to do much extra work to introduce a word when your Japanese Spitz is urinating or defecating. So when your dog starts to use the toilet, you can whistle (or introduce a gesture), and this behavior is paired with a command. This means that on those cold winter nights, or during toilet breaks on long trips, you have a way to get your dog to urinate or defecate quickly on command.

Choose only one place in the yard to use the toilet for Japanese Spitz

Choose an area away from the main recreation area in the yard as a toilet location. This will stop brown patches on the lawn and make it easier for Japanese Spitz to patrol. Buy a Japanese Spitz.

Use reward

To motivate your Japanese Spitz, you can use valuable rewards. When the dog responds to the compliment, do your best for toilet training. With delicious hospitality and generous praise, I really went beyond the top. You want to be rewarded within seconds of your pet going to the bathroom, so they know why they get so much attention. The more motivated your Japanese Spitz is, the more likely they are to work harder.
