Schnoodle Potty Training – 3 Steps to Success

Schnoodle potty training could be used for other breeds or hybrid breeds of dogs. The point of this article is to let you know what works best for schnoodles. 3 steps executed consistently will train your schnoodle in no time. Again, you must be consistent to train a dog to do anything, potty training being at the top of the list.

Step one in schnoodle potty training is block off an area of the house for your dog to stay when you are not home. The area should be an open area that can be seen in other rooms of the house. In other words, don’t lock your schnoodle in a bedroom or closet. They like to feel like they are part of the family, even if you are not home. It is recommended to block off part of the kitchen or put a half gate in a doorway so your dog can see the rest of the house. The space should not be too big (i.e. not the whole basement), but larger than a cage. It is a good idea to lay down newspaper or puppy training pads for the first week or so when accidents are still likely to happen. The reason to use a closed off room instead of a cage is so he/she will walk around like it would if it were out of the room and learn to not go potty in it. The blocking off of the room makes your schnoodle not want to “mess” where he/she lays or spends time.

Schnoodle potty training step two is to consistently let your dog outside. Take your dog outside periodically throughout the day. If possible, stay home the first two or three days to make sure he/she is taken out frequently enough to catch any messes before they happen. Every half hour should be good for the first and second day, slowly increasing the time between each outside time as more days go by.

When you are home and letting your dog out periodically, introduce a bell hanging on the door knob of the door you will let he/she out to go potty. As you are periodically letting out your puppy, pat the bell every time you get to the door. After a couple times of you doing it, have your schnoodle try patting the bell. After a few days of this, he/she will get the hint that patting the bell opens the door to go outside. Before you know it, your schnoodle will be a pro at this signal and you never have to wonder again if he/she has to go outside.

Schnoodle potty training is completely doable in one to two weeks. The more consistent you are at executing each step, the quicker your will reach success. There are still going to be accidents along the way. Find a good carpet cleaning solution and be patient to get through those weeks. Just remember, most dogs are potty trained. Your schnoodle will get there too.
