Top Tips for Potty Training Italian GreyhoundsUpdated 7 months ago

Welcome! It’s Sterling, back again with more house training tips to help you and your doggy better understand each other.

Today, we’re going to be learning all about Italian Greyhounds. I’m an expert because that’s my breed! As indoor dogs, we love to use the Doggy Bathroom, especially during the winter time because it just gets too cold to go outside sometimes. 

To get some extra tips, I decided to interview my fashionable friend, Adelaide (@iggyadelaide ). 

Tip 1: Stay Hydrated

Adelaide: The more often you go/bring attention to the pee pads, the less accidents there are. And of course, it's important you show us where the Doggy Bathroom is around 20 minutes after we drink water so we know where to go when it's time! 

As smaller dogs, we definitely have smaller bladders causing us to pee often! Remind us regularly that there are pee pads around the home that we can use, and it will stick for the next time we need to go.

Tip 2: Reward with Treats

Adelaide: Positive reinforcement and treats work way better than negative reactions. 

We Italian greyhounds sure love attention! So when you give us positive reinforcement, it will motivate us to keep doing a good job by using pee pads.

Tip 3: Privacy

Adelaide: Place the pad in a private area to give us some visual privacy. We’ll be more likely to go if we feel safe and secure.

Although we love being surrounded by people, when Italian greyhounds need to pee, we much prefer to do it in private!
