New to board, puppy potty training
Hi all, we just got a new puppy called Lady. I read tons of links that you on the forum provided and it has been very helpful, thank you. When it looks like Lady is about to pee or poo we pick her up and put her in our patio and close the screen, she usually goes after a few minutes, but sometimes she will wimper first and paw at the screen door. When she goes we praise her and give her a treat. My question is, this doesn't count as punishment does it? We are just trying to get her to associate that area with the potty. Thanks in advance, its our first puppy and she is a sweetheart.
