If you live in a climate where it's much too hot to go outside to teach your puppy housetraining skills, you can still try a few things. One option is to train your puppy using the paper training method. Commercial potty pads are available for just this purpose to help keep your floors free of any mess. Teach him to go in a designated area each time and give a command word such as, "Potty".
Another consideration might be to set up a shaded area outside of your home where your dog may be able to go. This can be accomplished by something as simple as an open kennel run and a kennel roof.
