  • I took ours out every hour on the hour. Eventually, he just started going to the door.

  • getting a puppy this time of year tos always the best..its so much harder to do it when its rainy or snowy..just make sure youre takin the puppy out after every nap, feeding, play-time, at least once an hour, until they get the hang of it..have fun!!

  • I've answered this question before and it is long so I am going to just give you a link with my answer on it to someone else.

    I recommend taking your new pup to a puppy obedience class. They are great for training you on how to train the new pup and can give you good advice on how to do other things, like how to clip their toenails, feeding, etc.

  • if you happen to catch the dog going potty in the house, immediately grab the dog and put him outside in the grass, never rub their nose in it b/c that will make them think that pottying is wrong. and if you find potty and didn't see the dog do it you can't do anything b/c the dog doesnt remember that he pottyed there.
