Outdoor Solutions To Help Potty Train Puppy In The Rain
When it's raining outside, prepare yourself. Get an umbrella and wear your raincoat. Get your dog fitted with a dog raincoat also! More often than not, a dog will stand out in the rain much longer with a raincoat on because it will prevent him/her from getting absolutely soaked!
Be sure you developed a routine schedule for your young puppy or older dog first. When the routine is set, you will know when your dog needs to eliminate. Rain won't stop them from going potty - but your patience might!
Have a place (rug, porch, or garage) where you can remove the wet coats, and have a towel handy to towel dry the wet legs and wet head of your puppy. Keep them all in your foyer closet so you can grab them readily on those rainy days. Your patience is important. So expect to walk your dog to a familiar spot where he/she normally would eliminate on any dry day.
