Step 1: Introducing Your Dog

Although it may sound difficult to housebreak your puppy in fact it is going to be fairly simple . You will see that Labrador's have a good relationship with human's and other pet's as well . So they will adapt and follow you as soon as they can . Just be patient and your dog is going to become like a part of your family .

1)Manage your Labrador’s territory.

You can’t always watch your puppy, sometimes you have to go out without it . In this case it would be perfect for you to manage it’s territory . In the first few month’s choose a small room or a safe zone for your Lab so that it can stay there without you being around .This so-called safe zone has a lot of benefit’s so that your Lab will learn it’s boundaries and limitation’s . Setting up this particular place in your house is going to give to your puppy a full perception of your personal way of living. So that it won’t be a problem in the future . What you should do is to clear everything out from the floor, and also pick a very particular spot so that your dog goes potty only there . Provide some kind of sand places like those of the cat’s, this has to be provisory and won’t last too long . Only when your dog is very young like 2 – 4 month’s old .

2)Go for walk’s with your Labrador.

Going for short periodical walk’s is a very healthy way for your puppy to socialize with you . Since your Labrador doesn’t know almost any one in your neighborhood a walk is probably the best choice . But going for a walk has other benefit’s too . Considering that you have a large breed walking is a good way of exercise, so that it can properly drain all it’s energy . Also your puppy will learn to work hard for the food, as it would be if he/she would live in the wild nature.

3)Food time gives you control.

There is also a well known exercise which you can do daily . And this involves your Labradors food time . Practically what you have to do is, teaching your dog the meaning of waiting . First pour the food into the food bowl, let the puppy sniff it watch it, but it shouldn't touch or lick it . If it is needed pick up the food bowl from the ground and after a few second's put it back on the ground . Do this exercise several times until your dog will memorize that you are in control of the food. The food time exercise is not rude, instead is a very good way of teaching your dog discipline and most important teaching him/her to wait for the prize . This is part of the housebreaking training session's for your puppy, and it has to be part of a daily routine .
