Most pet owners typically favor dogs. For thousands of years, they have been man’s friend. Each breed has invariably learned to depend on humans, unlike their wolf ancestors. However, depending upon the breed, each learns in its own way and can still carry traits of a wolf’s mentality. For instance, dogs identify with their owners as their leader of the pack. While owners do not wish their dogs to relieve themselves indoors, dogs do not typically equate discipline with the behavior or action, but one of dominance. This is why dogs appear “guilty.” A guilty look is usually an indication of submissiveness. Dogs know that owners are not happy, but they do not know why.
Smaller dogs can be somewhat more stubborn and may resolve to marking their territories within the home despite numerous praise and discipline attempts on part of their owners. Discipline can be problematic where dogs internalize the bad behavior as something wrong with themselves, rather than their actions. For this reason, pet owners encounter potty training as one of the most difficult aspects of dog training.
However, the indoor pet potty at ModernPuppies.com and provided DVD allows for a solution to the conflict between dog and owner. The system teaches dogs where to relieve themselves and not only this, but their exclusive place to relieve themselves for as long as each dog remains with its owner. Dogs need consistency in training and appealing to the dog’s nature, no matter the breed, is a must to potty training.
