Training Tips For Dogs In Apartments



At Arbors at California Oaks, we pride ourselves on offering some of the best community amenities the apartments in Murrieta have to offer. With two sparkling pools and spas, a lighted tennis court, and a pet-friendly community, you’ll be happy at your new apartment in Murrieta, CA. We’ve created a list of tips to help train your dogs in an apartment. 


Exercise. Exercise. And More Exercise. 

In an apartment, your dog is likely to build up a great deal of energy due to space constraints. This issue can be combated by developing a schedule to take your dog for at least two long walks each day. If you can take him jogging or allow him to run around the dog park that will help burn even more energy. 


Protect Your Apartment Floors

Arranging a specific area in the apartment where your pup can chew his bones and play with his toys prevents him from running all over your apartment. It is much easier (and cheaper) to pay for floor repairs in one spot compared to an entire apartment. 


Add a Balcony or Patio Potty

Put your balcony or patio to use and let it serve as an emergency potty for your pup. While creating your own is an option, It’s fairly simple to buy a contraption with faux grass where your pup can do his business if the urge strikes in the middle of the night. Your apartment floors will thank you.
