How to train puppy to get fresh on paper?

It has not even been one day since he was housebroken, my one and a half month Lab puppy has learned not to relieve in the room and he does his daily business on open Varandah. Thus, my efforts on the day I brought my puppy home ( slept less than 3 hours and took the puppy out of the room when ever he woke up and laid him onto the house varandah. I'm so happy Gogo has been so responsive to the house breaking training. I now want my puppy to relieve on a newpaper as picking it up and getting rid of it is easier than clean the whole potty. I keep the papper there but the puppy payes little attention to it and rather starts chewing on it. So far the tactics have been to place the papper at the back when he's about to do and letting the excreta fall onto the papper. I try to keep the paper as long as possible but have to get rid of it due to bad smell. I know patience is key but I want to know if there are any other tips to ensure he relieves only on the papper.

Why do you emphasize on paper training only..? Crate training is also a better option and a better option too. Search the net and you will find why crate training is better. Here is one of the links which states benefits of crate training http://www.dog-adoption-and-tr aining-guide.com/crate-trainin g.html

Relieving on news paper only suits for small breeds as their pee and poop are minimal when compared to medium/giant breeds. If you train your lab to relieve only on newspapers then just think about what will happen if he relieve only on news paper when he is 4 or 6 months old (as they relieve 0.5 to 1 liter urine sometimes as they grow older). What you did is absolutely good job i feel so as taking him varandah for pee and poop, you can continue some days, just wait for an another month, your puppy wont disturb you in night as my lab stopped calling me during night for pee/poop once he is 3 months old. You can also start leash training this time.

Crate training too is one of the best method for potty training as it works very well for my 2 month old pug, you can try this too for your lab.

Is you lab is from field line or show line (American or British)? good you bought lab puppy, didnt adopted the adult lab as you asked earlier?

Hi KamalRaj, I was going through some articles about potty training and found an interesting advise- Try and collect pop of the puppy on a papper. Place that paper with a new sheet where you want the puppy to pop, the smell and pop itself will reinforce an idea on him that he should pop on the sheet only or atleast near that place. I'll try to implement the same thing and let you know how sucessfull it'll be.
You are right this paper training is not feasible for a long run as a fully grown Lab can't be expected to relieve on a relatively small area of the paper. When the puppy grows older, I would want him to do his daily bussiness on the terrace. Right now thats not possible as the puppy is to small too climb on the ladders.
The puppy belongs to non-champion non- registered english lineage. Yes, I decided to adopt a puppy not adult dog.
Hi Ankush, I'll certainly go through the link above, I had heard crate training but used to think this is Western culture not feasible in our conditions.

I used paper training method to train my pup. Since I had to bring him home when he was just over a month old therefore his training began almost instantly. By the time he was 2 months old he was already paper potty trained. He would seek for a newspaper when ever he had an urge to go, though he did have had few accidents due to lack of bladder control.
In the beginning I use to place him on the paper just after his meals or any other time i felt he is about to go. The paper was always available (in the verandah) soon he associated the smell and feel of newspaper as a place to relieve himself. Since papers use to fly off due to wind etc, I started placing papers in the designated area around the time he was expected to go. Incidentally it helped more than I expected as he would relieve himself at set times. This did not completely eliminate him having accidents as he hadn't yet mastered the art of bladder control, however they were reduced quite a lot. Thereafter it wasn't very difficult as we would take him out on already established times and he had a sense of whats expected of him. One more thing which might have helped is that from very beginning if I saw him going to "Go" I use to say "Go Potty" and as soon as he was done doing his business I would get hyper excited and use to give him some treat at times. I still use those words every time I take him out, He doesn't "Go" on command but at times it helps to remind him that we are not out for a walk. I am not sure if it will help you but I hope it does.

Hi El, I also keep newspaper available on the floor but the puppy doesn't pay a lot of attention to it. He looks for bare space to pop. What's good is he does it very near to the gate which helps us when we're getting rid of it. In our case, taking puppy to the varandah itself reinforce on him that it's time for him to refresh himself. So no verbal command is being used but I anticipate the use of verbal command when he grows older as he will have to go on the roof to do his daily business. As in your case, even my lab has not mastered potty training as even after being taken out at 3 AM Midnight, we find his pop under our bed.

Hi Navjot,

I saw puppy proof mat in pet store, this mat makes puppy to do pee/poop in that mat only. You can also check that.
