    potting training class for dogs?

    Advertisements
    it sounds like a ridiculous waste of time and money to me I mean i swear our puppy has a memory span of about 3 minutes...but does it work?

    in my experience, a class didnt work for us (we had two dogs and tried a class for one of them) it just makes it hard to train them outside the home....like how can you train a dog to got sit down by the front door when they have to go...if you're not at home?? i dunno...we ended up training them ourselves

    but as far as training goes, YES you're puppy can learn, i promise. it just takes a LOT of time and patience. good luck!

    yeaa bit ridiculous...it definately takes longer than a day/2hours completely potty training a dog....maybe its more of a class for the owner, like "how to train your puppy"

    I think they are a waste of time and money. To get a dog to go outside just takes lots of repetition and reward I had our puppy potty trained in 2 days. Taking him out once an hour He now goes to the door and sits when he needs to go

    I don't see how a class would housebreak a dog

    TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY and your time. If you can't be home to train the puppy...don't get the puppy until you have time for the puppy. A puppy can hold his urine an hour based on how many months he is. IE...2 months, 2 hours...and so on. The puppy drinks, you take him out, the puppy eats, you take him out, the puppy wakes up, you take him out, the puppy is done playing, you take him out.

    Potty training is not easy...but if people are willing to pay for a "class" on something that is as simple as taking the dog outside....I am willing to open a business.

    I don't even see how that would work?!? I bet it's just someone giving you tips on how to do it, which you could learn for free with google or a library card.
