Tips for potty training in an apartment / townhouse?

Started by Michele Kiss. Last reply by Joan Bollaert Apr 13, 2014. 4 Replies

We live in a townhouse where getting to "outside" is a walk down a hallway, an elevator ride, then half a block down the street to the nearest grass. So naturally, that won't work for a little pup to…Continue

There are definitely days that I wish we had a nice fenced in yard for Darwin to run around in, and a home I owned. But I've been thinking about what raising Darwin in an apartment has done for us,…Continue

LeAnne, I think you should look into putting him in puppy kindergarten. They learn so much, and they socialize with other puppies who also have not gotten their shots. The group is small, but it really helped Darwin come out of his shell. We enrolled him when he was about 12 weeks old. Also, as an indoor activity I would suggest training. Teach him all of the basics, but also teach him some fun tricks. It keeps their mind working and they love getting the treats from doing the right thing.

yes. It really helps. That way she can run and play and get some of that doodle energy out before bedtime. Otherwise she thinks that's playtime. lol

It's so nice to have a fenced in area, isn't it? My apartment has one and I'm so glad.

I agree with you about the winter!

Besides walks, hikes and dog parks, Edgar goes to day car three days a week. Living in a condo, We play lots of indoor ball and Edgar usually goes out whenever we do - to the recycling bins (a favorite,) our community garden, the garbage... anything that helps get him out and expending energy. On the whole it works well. But it's definitely harder in the winter,

I am fortunate to live by four or five dog parks, so I drive him there as well. It's a lot easier in the summer, during the winter I don't want to drag myself out there! Luckily Darwin isn't super high energy. He's actually pretty lazy. An hour of some romping usually does the trick!

I try to start off every day with a long walk which is good for both of us. There is a small area in the back of the condo which has a rather large No Dogs Allowed sign. I am fortunate to live in a town with two colleges that have several open sporting fields where she can run and walk off leash. This means schlepping her to the car for these outings which I do at least twice a day during the week and more on the weekends. There are also several dog parks within a 20mile radius which she enjoys. Sadie absolutely loves to be outside and sometimes I feel bad that she is a "condo dog", so I do try and get her outside as much as I can. Sadly, she is not bothered by any kind of inclement weather and loves snow, cold weather, and rain :)

Yes, that counts! It's mostly a no-yard no-space issue. :-)
Comment by LG & Sadie on June 7, 2010 at 10:57am
Does owning condo. old brick mill conversion with no seperate entrance or yard come close enough to an apartment? I feel this group would be a good place for me-Sadie is 3 and I have ideas! ;-)
