How to Potty Train Your Squirrel

Dr. Heather Wittenberg

Squirrels are always on the go, so they couldn’t care less about stopping to use the potty. Squirrels’ can’t-stop, won’t-stop energy makes potty time a real adventure. They’re not likely to stop playing long enough to use the potty. This personality doesn’t seem to be bothered by a full load in their pants, because they’re too busy to notice.

Tips for training your Squirrel

Here are some tips on how to achieve potty training success with your Squirrel:

  • Skip the Finer Details : Your squirrel doesn’t have the patience to sit and listen to all the details of the potty process, so don’t bore her with instruction.
  • Game On : Get him started on games and the Time to Potty app, and combine the games with real potty experiences.
  • Quicken the Process with Pull-Ups® : Let your Squirrel know that consistently using Pull-Ups® is faster than using diapers – which means playtime starts even sooner!
  • All of the Feelings : Make sure your Squirrel is aware of her own body. Ask her what she feels like when she has to go potty. Just remember that toddlers sometimes have a hard time putting their feelings and sensations into words, so you can also share what it feels like when you have to go.
  • Don’t Stop Moving : Keep him moving when possible. Squirrels need tons of exercise and play time to they can later settle down to their potty business.
