When you’re housebreaking your English bulldog puppy, you may also teach them how to use pee pads. This can help prevent accidents in the future, especially if you live in an upstairs apartment where it may be difficult to get outside to go potty. However, teaching your English bulldog to use pee pads can be easier said than done. Here are a few tips to get you started:
The key to teaching your puppy how to use pee pads is consistency. You need them to use the pee pads frequently enough so that they learn that’s the place to go potty. This is only done if you stay vigilant and know when your English bulldog puppy needs to go to the bathroom. Stay alert for these tell-tale signs:
- Sniffing around
- Going in circles
- Apprehensive behavior
Be careful of when you feed them
Most dogs go to the bathroom not too long after they eat. So, be careful of when you feed your pup. Keep them on a regular schedule, and don’t feed them if you know you’ll need to leave in the next few hours.
We know how frustrating this process can be. Housebreaking any puppy is never easy, and there will be days when you get truly frustrated. However, be patient and understand that your puppy doesn’t know better. If they accidentally pee on the rug instead of the pad, don’t yell at them. Simply clean it up and try better next time.
