Frenchies are a very popular dog for a variety of reasons.
They are smart, (somewhat) clean, and extremely loyal to their owners.
Plus, Frenchies aren’t too high maintenance for people who live active lives and don’t need a lot of space, so are great for apartment living.
Just like any dog, you will have to potty train your new puppy. This is one of the hardest parts of the training process because it can be frustrating, for owner and pup alike, and it also gets kind of messy!
French Bulldogs, in particular, are quite a stubborn breed. Once they learn something they will stick with it forever, but that initial learning phase can be a challenge.
Here are some tips to help you potty train your new French Bulldog.
French Bulldog Potty Training Tips
Create a regular schedule.
Life can be quite hectic, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t create a schedule in the midst of all of the chaos. Take your puppy out at the same times throughout the day. For example, take them out first thing in the morning, after eating and drinking, after being in their crate or room, and before bed. It’s also important to feed your dog at the same times so they start to create habits… one of which is relieving themselves outside!
Using puppy pee pads
It doesn’t matter how great of a puppy you have or how great of a trainer you are, there will inevitably be an accident during the potty training period. Don’t get upset by planning in advance. Utilize puppy pee pads. These pads will give your puppy a place to pee in case they need to go at a time out of the regular schedule. The pee pads catch the urine so that it doesn’t get into your carpet and floor. This makes clean up much easier, and prevents the odor from penetrating your home!
