How to train for UGODOG indoor potty

How to train to go on UGODOG indoor potty?

We started to take him out to do his thing and he was doing fine except for few accidents.

2 days ago we bought UGODOG ...I have this in his xpen ...Toby seems to think its his resting pad...he is always laying down on it ...of getting his treat to chew on it! ...I have put the disposable pads inside of it...grrrr.

So far he used it just ONCE to pee... my hope was that he would use this at times when we are not around to let him out...instead he pee's on the floor, if I dont let him go out in time.

God pls give me more patience that is needed at this hour...

He has no way of knowing what is the "right" place to go and the "wrong" place to go. You need to close the ex-pen up to the size that is JUST big enough for his bed (or crate) in one end, and the UgoDog in the other end. Then watch him very carefully. When puppies wake up for their nap, or first thing in the morning, they almost always need to go. Position yourself so that he needs to go across the UgoDog to get from his bed to you. Say "Go Potty" and wait. (he doesn't know what the words mean yet, but eventually he will!) DO NOTHING but say "Go Potty" and wait... for as long as it takes. When he goes, IMMEDIATELY have a party... Telling him what a WONDERFUL smart puppy he is, and maybe sweetening the pot with a yummy treat.

Keep the expen folded down to this size until he is reliably using the UgoDog. When he is, you can start SLOWLY increasing the size of the expen as he proves he can handle it. If he has a mistake, make it smaller again. He'll get it... it just takes time and patience!

"HE" gave you the people on this forum who can help you with Toby's training. That will be your path to patience. Keep asking away.
