Some dogs are harder than others. Crate training is very helpful in house breaking. A dog perceives it as their “den” and will not soil it. Develop a routine after they eat, before bed and first thing in the morning, and be consistent. A minimum of three potty breaks a day are necessary.
For puppies, potty breaks should be every two hours. Remember a puppy’s little bladders may not be under control as quickly as we’d like so be positive.
