The Benefits of Housebreaking Your Dog

There are a number of benefits to housebreaking your dog. If your pooch is an inside pet, a clean and comfortable household will be your first concern. Secondly, the comfort of visiting guests will be improved when your dog is properly housebroken and is a natural fit with the household.

Outside of the home, housebreaking your dog will improve the overall quality of life for you, your family and your four-legged friend. When you travel, some hotels require a pet deposit and, depending on the hotel chain, the cost can be quite hefty. This deposit is usually non-refundable and is required of anyone traveling with a pet. If your pet isn't housebroken, absolute disaster may occur. Not only would you be charged for the pet deposit, but you may also be liable for any damages or special cleaning that must be utilized as a result of your stay. If you are traveling with a dog, making sure that he/she is housebroken should be a priority before you even start to pack.

Speaking of traveling, most pet owners prefer to drive with their four-legged friends as opposed to public transportation, which can be very restrictive if they even allow pets at all. Therefore, housebreaking your dog will not only benefit your household, but can also benefit your automobile in the case of a road trip. When your dog learns the proper times to relieve itself, he/she will need nothing more than frequent rest stops. If you rent an automobile, it is essential that your pet be housebroken unless you want to pay excessive cleaning or repair charges. In addition, obedience training and being familiar with riding in an automobile is critical to a successful trip. If you are renting an automobile, first check with the rental company regarding their policy on pets before completing the rental agreement.

When your road trip is over and it's back to home sweet home, your housebreaking methods will continue to pay off. While you are at work, you will have the peace of mind in knowing that your house will be clean when you return. If you install a small dog door, your pet can come and go as he/she pleases and there is no need to worry about arriving home to find little messes all throughout your house.

As a final thought to the benefits of housebreaking your dog, a clean home is more than just pleasant to look at or to be in - it should also be a healthy environment. In housebreaking your dog, you are enabling you and your family to live harmoniously with your four-legged friend. Studies show that people who have pets often live longer and happier lives, but it's also important to live in a healthy house in the process. When your home is clean and your dog is properly trained, there is one less thing to worry about in the way of domesticating your animal in a way that will not compromise the health of your family. Your dog will enjoy living indoors just as much as you will enjoy having him/her there, so be sure to allow for the proper adjustment time and instill the proper housebreaking techniques to make your house is a happy and healthy home.
