Keep reading for expert tips to prevent your dog from using the same spot again and again.

#1. Use repellent to make the area less enticing.

Make the trouble spot less tempting for your dog. One of the best ways to do this is by using a commercial repellent, or by making your own. In our next blog, we’ll touch on a few safe, do-it-yourself, all-natural dog repellents, so make sure that you stay tuned!

#2. Make the space your dog’s “den.”

Dogs like to have a den, which is a designated area where they can sleep, eat, drink and pay. Dogs won’t urinate in their dens unless they absolutely have to, so a great way to discourage them from using the same spot over and over again is to set up their food bowls, toys and bed in that same area.

#3. Create a safe place for your dog to go.

If the reason why your dog keeps going in the same spot is because they can’t hold it long enough to make it outside, then it’s important to create a safe spot for them to do their business inside. This is where one of our potty training pads can really come in handy, as they are designed with a pheromone that helps to encourage your dog to use them. They are also fast and easy to clean up, and they’ll help to protect your home.

#4. Use positive reinforcement to encourage them to go in appropriate areas.

Yelling at your dog when they have an accident inside will only confuse them, make them afraid of you and it may even damage your relationship with them. Positive reinforcement is the way to go when it comes to training your dog. Make it a point to give them a treat, a hug, praise or some kind of reward when they urinate where they are supposed to.

If your dog has been peeing in the same spot over and over again, don’t give up hope. There are lots of ways to help to correct this problem, and one of the best places to start is by ordering high-quality puppy mats online today. Best of all, every order comes with a 100 percent guarantee.
