It’s one of the most basic training elements, but easy to get wrong

Housetraining Your New Dog

Patience is key when it comes to housebreaking because every puppy or new dog will learn the process at his own pace. Unless a dog is taught where to eliminate, he’ll look for any spot that’s convenient and safe, which often ends up being the carpeting (nice and warm)! Even if a dog is already housebroken, he needs to learn where you want him to go in a new home or in new surroundings. Keep in mind that dogs aren’t born with the reasoning to understand that going to the bathroom inside the house is wrong.

Since dogs naturally want to keep their personal area clean, they will eliminate away from their personal space. Additionally, many owners make the mistake of giving a giving a new dog to much space to quickly. If this is the case the dog has little incentive to wait to go outside . By keeping your dog properly confined and on a regular schedule your dog should learn good house training behaviors fairly quickly.
