Being creatures of habit, puppies tend to decide on special spots to use for a bathroom and return to it each time. You should be the one to decide where that spot will be. Have an area for your puppy that keeps pup on newspaper or potty pads when your puppy is not being supervised. By doing this, you guarantee your pups success. When your puppy potty on it's papers or pads praise pup "good boy" "good girl". When your puppy is out of it's area, pup must be watched. Any signs of having to go, place pup on the papers and priase pup. If your puppy has an accident and you catch puppy in the act, scold pup (no rolled up papers or rubbing noses) and place your puppy where you want pup to go and praise your puppy. If your puppy will be going in a certain area outside, either move your pooch potty area to that location once your pup "gets it" or start in that location. Young puppies should be taken to their potty place about every hour. Also you should automatically have your pup go after a meal, when pup first wakes up or is let out of the crate or kennel.
