Housebreaking Your Puppy

Housebreaking your puppyHousebreaking Your Puppy

You should begin housebreaking your puppy as soon as you bring it home.  Once bad habits are started they are harder to break.  You must decide whether you are going to train you puppy to go indoors, outdoors or a combination of both, which is recommended as you don’t have to worry about your puppy getting wet or soiling his coat if the weather is bad.

Most puppies should be taken out after:

Waking in the mornings
After naps
After meals
After play or training
