- Please Keep his/her diet simple and consistent – like, avoid table scraps and canned foods which are a huge add on to there weight, the water quality should be very good and always clean their bowls.
- For Potty: Choose an area, about ten square feet, outside, where your furry friend can empty their stomach.
- Take your furry friend on leash to the open area, pace back and forth and keep encouraging with the phrase “do your business” ( always carry a potty picker with you so that you can keep the area clean)
- Try this for no more than three minutes:
if he eliminates, give him/her lots of praise and play,
if he doesn’t, keep him on leash, go back indoors, keep dog on leash with you or confined in a crate.

give huge amounts of praise and play.
