It is common for pets to be victims of accidents in the house, especially during the early days of their training. Soiling accidents happen often. You should be careful about such accidents and make sure that your pet is not hurt. Here are some tips.
- If there was an accident due to the fault of your pet, then you should punish your pet within limits. This will ensure that such incidents should never happen again. The punishment should be given immediately after the accident, not after hours or minutes. It will confuse your pet.
- If you see that your puppy is doing something that can lead to an accident, alert him with a loud voice so that he stops doing whatever he is doing. If he listens to you, give him a reward.
- You should always keep an eye on your pet to avoid accidents. Look out for signs that your pet is about to eliminate. These include scratching at the door, sniffing at the floor, etc.
- You should use the right cleaning products to clean the messy area. After cleaning, make sure there is no evidence of the mess; else your pet might come back to the scene. You should not let your pet come near the area for a while to prevent him from consuming any cleaning chemicals.
Keep these tips in mind when your pet is inside the house. It is important to have a safe and clean environment for the good upbringing of your pet.
