Crate Training your miniature schnauzer

 It's important that the crate is just the right size for puppy or dog, just big enough for puppy to stand and lay down also to be able to turn around. Make sure crate is well ventilated. When puppy feels that it has to out, they will scratch or start whining to let you know it needs to potty.

Crate training 

When in the house, keep puppy in crate or under very close supervision. Take puppy out often.

Never leave puppy in crate all day! Puppy needs several potty breaks, playtime and feedings. If left to long in crate puppy will have no choice in soiling his or her crate and this is not considered misbehaving. Never use crate for punishment, it should be puppy's safe place, not a place of punishment.

You can use a blanket after puppy starts getting the going outside idea, to make the crate feel more like a den. Use crate for nighttime, naps and quite time to let puppy unwind from all the chaos.

  • After drinking

Observation and Supervision

Watch your puppy carefully to learn his or her individual habits, some puppies can hold it longer than others. Some puppies will have to go out after play or getting excited. Some will just stop playing to pee, then start playing again.

Control the Diet

Puppies have an immature digestive system, so they can't really handle a lot of food at once. That's why it's important to break up feedings into small meals. Make sure you us a highest quality food. whatever you choose to make sure it doesn't upset puppy's tummy. Limit treats.

Praise is very Important

Scolding puppy after the fact isn't going to do anything, puppy has already forgot. On the other hand, praising puppy for doing the right thing will work the best in any training you will do with your puppy. Give treats, clap, cheer let puppy know you are happy he or she went potty outside or where you have designated a place.

How long does it take to Potty Train

That can vary. There are many factors to consider, such as age, learning, history, and how you train and your consistency. The 8-month-old puppy is very different developmentally than a 5-month-old puppy. If the puppy comes from a responsible breeder who has already been working on the basics with the whole liter, this puppy will have a head start. Some learn fast some don't, patience is the tool to potty training your puppy!
