Simple Toilet Training Techniques

When it comes to Cairn terrier training in your home there are a few specific boundaries that you must teach your dog as soon as they get their little paws on the floor.

You should already have picked out a spot in your garden or an area of your apartment to use as your animals toilet, your terrier will need to form an understanding of what this area is for whilst still young.

Each day place them in the area and leave them to get a scent of the surroundings; use a command like “toilet now” a couple of times in a firm but friendly tone.

After your dog relieves themselves make a big fuss about it, pet them and give them a lot of praise so that an emotional bond is made with this action and area.

Crate Training Your Cairn Terrier Puppies

This is a popular method that can be used with great results during Cairn terrier training sessions; the idea is to train your dog to use the toilet only when let out side of the cage.

Dogs have an inherent dislike of soiling their sleeping area, so as they get used to the small cage being their sleeping area, they will hold it until they are let out.

They will then use the same action when let out into your home space and only go to the toilet outside. When choosing a cage go for one that is big enough for your terrier to grow into, because your puppies will be very small in comparison to the cage use a piece of cardboard to half the size during training.

Here are a few extra bit of information to help ease the shock of crate training for your new puppies:

  • The Cairn terrier breed is known to be a very enthusiastic and energetic animal who loves affection, so at first they will endlessly whine when put into the cage. It is easy to give into the adorable cries of a tiny puppy though remember it is for their own good and yours that they learn this routine before entering the main house space.
  • Try placing the crate in the kitchen space where a lot of people come and go; this will keep your puppies in close proximity to people during the brief separation.
  • Keep the cage floor covered in comfortable soft blankets and perhaps add a few small dog toys to keep your puppies relaxed and comfortable for this period of time.
