It is best to choose a small confined space within your house, or outside, to be able to train your dog properly. This will provide your dog and yourself with a place to interact and bond and will also allow your dog to become acquainted with the room and everything inside it. Some ideas include the bathroom, garage or kitchen but you will have to decide which rooms you do not want your dog to visit. Some dog owners regard the kitchen, for example, as a place of hygiene so would not want their pet wandering inside.
The small size of the training room will ensure that your dog will not spend too much time exploring and you can be assured of their undivided attention during training. It is here that you would familiarize your pet with the litter, bed or food so that they will know where they need to stay. The bed and litter can be moved to other areas of the house depending on your choice but your dog needs to know what they are used for. It might take some time (and convincing) to have the dog focused on the task so make sure to have some treats handy. Only when they make progress or obey your commands should you award them a treat. Otherwise they will gain the upper hand.>
