Because most new dog owners will want to know how to house train a puppy, we’ve created a guide that will set you on your way to household bliss.
I want to take a moment to highlight the power of using a crate to help potty train your pup. Since your dog’s natural instinct is not to pee or poop where they sleep, purchasing the proper crate will make your life A LOT easier. Once you’re all setup and prepared for the arrival of your new pet, follow these steps and you’ll have a house broken puppy in no time.
Quick Tip: If your new pooch is regressing and soiling their crate, go ahead and place their food dish into their crate. Dogs, being the smart creatures that they are, will not want to use the bathroom where they eat. Use this to your advantage to encourage better potty habits.
Learning how to house train a puppy, while difficult at first, can provide a great opportunity to bond with your new pet. It can teach patience and responsibility and is a great first step to lead you on a road to a lifetime of companionship. Best of all, if you’ve followed our steps you’ll have a house trained puppy in as little as two weeks’ time.
