*long post alert* Today we want to talk about potty training for those who want their puppies to potty outside but live in an apartment. Specifically, when do you really stop carrying your puppy downstairs so he/she doesn’t accidentally pee before getting outside. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is the question that we can't even Google, so we struggled to nail it down for a long time. While we are not training experts and Loafie is still NOT fully potty trained, we want to share our experience on how we figured out our challenge. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Around Loafie’s 9-12 weeks, she knew to potty outside, but since we live on a higher floor, we had to carry her to prevent potty mistakes. She started gaining weight, and the question of “when can we stop carrying her?” popped into our heads. We thought we could train her, but we didn’t even know what we were doing. We basically put her on the ground at random times, so she peed at the wrong places. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It wasn’t until around 14-16 weeks that she had better bladder control and that we finally figured out a system. First, we put her down by the lobby door. This prompted her to see that she had to get out there to potty. Every time she did it, we gave lots of praises and treats. Then we moved further away from outside to where the elevator was, prompting her to walk through the lobby to get outside. Again, lots of praises and treats. Kept moving further to inside the elevator, starting from lower floors, and eventually to our floor. We stopped carrying her. ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Currently at 18 weeks, this is our routine: We walk her out of our apt to the elevator and make her stay. Once inside the elevator, we tell her to sit/stay again and give her a treat when we’re on the ground floor. Then we quickly walk her through the lobby to go outside. Finally, she does what she has to do. 😊 We put a raw footage to help you visualize the routine, but don’t laugh at that angelic high-pitch voice😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What worked for us may not work 100% for you, so please take it with a grain of salt. But we hope this detailed method can help those who are in similar boats. Good luck!!
