  • It is hard but this is the best for him. He needs to know that he can sleep with out the two of you.

  • Wrong question. Any way. Take the dog out to were you want her to potty every hour for a young pup, older ones figure out how often they need to go then stick to that schedule. When she does go, lots of praise saying potty or what ever you want the word for it be often. Also when you take her out teach her the signal to you that she needs to go. With mine it was scratching at the door. I would take her paw and scratch the door each time before we left, she got the hint. Do this till you feel she has it down. Remember frequency, praise, consistency is the key to training any dog. Good luck. AlsoAnimal Planet has a good dog training show.  Experiment with what pitch voice is the best for your dog.  I had one that a high excited voice was best and another were a lower monotoned voice were better.  Have fun.
