How can I set up a regular place for my dog to "go"?

Designate a Place in Your Yard

Establish a specific area in your yard for your dog to eliminate each time to protect your lawn and simplify clean up. Each time you take your dog out, lead him to the designated area, instruct him to, "Go Potty," and refrain from any other interaction or playtime until he does his business.

• For easy clean up, you can use plastic sandwich bags, plastic grocery shopping bags, or a commercial waste pick-up bag. Using your hand inside the bag, pick up the waste, turn the bag inside out, and you have instant clean up.
