Three Rules of Housebreaking

If you're in the midst of housetraining your puppy, here's a few important points that will help the process go more smoothly.

1. Pick a routine to start, so that your puppy can know when to expect to go outside. After meals, in the morning, and before bedtime are ideal potty breaks.
2. If you can't be there to watch your puppy, use a crate to aid in housebreaking. Remember that your puppy has limited bladder control at a young age and still needs to be taken out frequently.
3. Pick a safe and secure designated area so that your puppy knows where to eliminate.
