Take your puppy out first thing in the morning, after meals and naps, and at least once every hour between these times.
Give food at set times each day. This helps regulate elimination needs.
Your dog's breed may impact how often you need to take it out. Smaller dogs have smaller bladders and may need to be taken out more often.
If your dog is accustomed to doing its business in a crate, or has lived outdoors, you might find it harder to train. Be consistent and your pet will eventually catch on.
Each time your dog does his business outdoors, give plenty of praise. Offer a treat or a tummy rub, or take a walk around the neighborhood.
Your dog recognizes his own scent, so keep bathroom visits to the same area. The scent urges your pet to go.
House-training can take half a year or more. The more consistent you are in the training, the quicker the results.
