How do Pomeranians pee? How can I stop my 4 year old Pomeranian dog from peeing on the rug? I have a 4 year old Pomeranian who has been potty trained outside. Lately, she’s been lazy and peeing on our rugs. I scold her, that is, I show her what she is doing, but this does not help. Sometimes she goes out to do her business and other times she does it at home. What exactly do I need to do to teach her not to pee in the house? Is it because she is lazy?

How do you train a Pomeranian to pee?

Training a Pomeranian to pee is not very difficult. However, the process takes up to eight weeks and requires consistency. Here are six easy steps on how to pee-train a Pomeranian:

Step one: Start by housebreaking your Pomeranian in a designated area indoors. This could be a single room or a section of your home, such as the laundry room or garage. The reason why it’s good to start indoors is that puppies are small and can’t walk into the backyard.

Pomeranian Potty Training

To begin your journey to a clean house and a happy, potty trained Pomeranian, take these steps into consideration:

• Take your Pomeranian to an area where he or she can use the bathroom before entering your home for the first time.• After he goes to the bathroom, praise him with lots of praise!• Bring your new dog inside and allow him or her to explore • Anticipate times when he is likely to need to eliminate (eg, after eating, every few hours, and before bed) and take him outside immediately. • Continue to praise your Pomeranian every time the elimination happens, and he will be happy to receive your adoration and treats! • If accidents happen (and they certainly will), don’t scold or punish your adult dog. Clean up the mess – silently – and keep training him. Be pro active; an older Pomeranian won’t let you know when he needs to go potty, at least not at first. Eventually he will understand and respond accordingly.


Training or retraining your dog to relieve himself outdoors will require some diligence on your part. Try the following steps to change your pet’s behavior and protect your home and your sanity.

Pay attention to the signs of peeing. Dogs often have obvious «signals» before they relieve themselves. Watch your dog closely and intervene if you see him sniffing the ground, lifting his leg, or even circling around. Prepare them outside and keep them there until they do the deed. So lie down in love and praise. They need to associate external urination with your approval.

Start potty training immediately

A common mistake most owners make is delaying potty training their Pomeranian. This leads to the formation of bad habits, which are twice as difficult to break.

Before entering the house, take your Pomeranian puppy to their designated potty area and wait for them to relieve themselves.
