How should I housetrain my dog?

Housetraining Dogs

To housebreak your dog, you need to establish a routine that helps her learn to do her business outside. Take her to a designated potty spot after each meal, first thing in the morning, and before bedtime. If your puppy is young, she may still need to go out in the middle of the night.

Another helpful thing you can teach your dog is to give you a signal when she needs to go outside. One good method is to install a bell about 6 inches off the floor at your backdoor. Show your dog to hit the bell with her paw and then take her outside. Repeat this exercise several times. She should learn to signal to go out in no time!
