Using Red Pepper to Keep a Dog from Peeing on the Carpet?

My daughter just got a new puppy and it keeps going in my closet and peeing and pooping. Will using crushed red pepper deter a dog from peeing on my carpet if I sprinkle it on heavily?

Pepper will harm the pup and cause burns to he mouth, eyes, and paws. Please do not use that to potty train or for any other training. This is a dangerous practice.

Pups need to be crate trained. I don't know what breed or mx you have, so you may want to as your vet for his/her preferred method this or there are hundof breed and breed mix specific videos.

The key to create training is lavish praise when doing the right thing and a consistent schedule and that everyone working with the pup has a consistent process. Post back how it goes and leave the pepper out of the mix.

Animals lick themselves. To put red pepper on them would result in a burning taste.


This is cruel. Put the dog on a strict feeding and walking schedule. Praise him when he goes outside and dont punish for accidents.

No it would not deter him. He could be badly and permanently injured by red pepper. Take the time to learn to train your puppy with positive reinforcement. You can find discussions of how to do that by a search of this site or other sites on the internet.

Will chili powder hurt to sprinkle on the rugs?
