How to Care for Your Dog:
Toilet training (potty training, house training) a puppy takes time, and she will make some mistakes. First, decide what places she can use as her bathroom and tell everyone in your home.
When you house train a puppy, watch her closely and learn the signs that she will soon go to the toilet. These may include walking in a circle, sniffing the floor, whining, acting restless, and squatting.
If he starts to go to the bathroom in the wrong place, quickly move him to the right place and praise him. Don’t punish him for mistakes; this only makes it harder for him to learn. If you don’t see him make a mess, don’t bother correcting him later – he won’t connect the mistake to the correction.
Puppies go to the toilet about every three hours, usually after sleeping, playing, and feeding.
