We all love a helping hand, especially when we experience potty training problems with a puppy…
Does the potty training spray work? And is it the solution for how to speed up puppy potty training? Let’s find out!
And we’ve been there. Trying to navigate an apartment living with your pooch, or those freezing winter months where NOBODY wants to go outside. If there was a way to speed up your puppy potty training, you’d want to know!
It was our experiences of potty training that led us to develop both our signature Reusable Pad, and the new and exciting Housebreaking Training Spray - because we know just how much that extra help means.
So what is a potty training spray for dogs and how can it help?
What Is a Potty Training Spray?
Our Housebreaking Training Spray (also known as a potty training spray) is designed to encourage toilet-training puppies to pee in one specific place. Ie - your pee pad rather than on your carpet!
By encouraging your puppy to choose this spot when they need to go, you can speed up the potty training process, as you reduce your chances of accidents whilst simultaneously boosting your chances of success. Combine this with a celebration when they choose the right spot (fuss, treats, and lots of ‘good dog’) and you’ll be well on your way to potty training success.
Being able to speed up this process is such a bonus when you are raising a pup. As the sooner they grasp potty training, the more energy you can put into all the other must-haves - like sit, down, and leave it!
It’s especially useful for puppies that are learning to use a pee pad, as often this can be a slightly more complex concept for some young dogs to get the hang of. Especially if your pads closely resemble that carpet!
And let’s face it - outdoors isn’t always an option. Whether you are traveling, moving, or simply stuck in a cold spell - pad training can be an incredibly useful skill for all kinds of dogs. Especially those golden oldies, who might find getting outdoors a bit too much.
How Does the Potty Training Spray Work?
Puppies, and adult dogs, have a tendency to want to pee where they have peed before. Not only do they naturally build what’s called ‘substrate preferences’, actively searching out the same textures for pee breaks, but they are also learning the important act of scent marking.
A form of canine communication, your pup’s pee includes chemical messages about themselves for all the dog world to smell. And if they smell these messages floating about — they’ll want to join the conversation.
The Housebreaking Training Spray works by mimicking this communication, acting like a beacon to your puppy’s bladder! Formulated with gentle ingredients + a powerful, scientifically formulated attractant - our spray tells your doggo that this is the place to do their business.
But don’t worry - the clever pheromone-mimicking substance is only detectable to your dog's nose, so you won’t be holding yours! Proudly made in the USA, it’s safe for your floors & the entire household too, so no worrying about the little ones or your other animal family.
How to Use the Dog Potty Spray:
We created this handy spritz bottle that can work in harmony with your Potty Buddy Pad, giving you the perfect pairing for potty training done right. Or you can even use it outside to keep that grass free from unsightly stains and focus your dog's elimination efforts elsewhere!
Step 1 - Spray the desired area liberally.
Step 2 - Allow your pooch to sniff around.
Step 3 - If they eliminate, reward them thoroughly.
Step 4 - For young pups, combine this approach with frequency. It’s best to bring them to this area at least once an hour (if not more).
Step 5 - Spray the area around 3 times a day to begin with to keep the attraction strong (more if you are using the spray outside).
Step 6 - Repeat until your dog has the concept down!
Do Potty Sprays Work?
Our tried and tested formula is designed to attract all breeds, shapes, and sizes with its potent formula. So whether your dog reacts a little or a lot, it’s very likely to help them find the right direction for their eliminations.
And what’s the foundation of successful potty training? Building up a consistent habit. That’s why we created this spray, to boost the chances of your pup going in the right place, reducing those failures, and increasing your success rate. This can accelerate the housetraining process — which is something we sure wished for at 2 am in the freezing cold…
