Congrat’s on your puppy! The first few weeks are tough but it gets much better. The best way to potty train your pup is to get her on a schedule. Don’t waste your time scoulding her for accidents in the house, puppies don’t learn that way. 

As soon as your puppy wakes up take them for a break. Let her eat and drink, then another break.

We crate trained our puppy and he learned very quickly not to pee in his crate. 

When ever we took our puppy out the crate he got a potty break. He soon learned that he could hold it until he got his breaks.

Our dog is a year old next week and never has accidents. He also doesn’t have to use his crate anymore but it wwas a God send when we first got him.

Good luck!

Awwww so cute!  I love the 2nd pic – puppy bellies are the best!

For house training tips, when you take her outside, bring some treats with you.  When she “goes”, immediately give her a treat to build a positive association with doing that outside.  Also you should section off part of the house as the puppy’s section and cover the floor with some kind of barrier to protect the carpet.  We went to Home Depot and found some rolls of clear vinyl that held up well.

@MrsUNClover:  how adorable!!!

Potty training tips: be consistent – meaning take her outside every single time after she drinks or eats or wakes up from a nap. If she starts to play outside, bring her back in. You want her to realize she is out there for a reason! And pay very close attention to her as much as you can. Some puppies have a “tell” for when they are going to pee, so if you can catch it and rush her outside, that’s great! 

Don’t scold her for pottying in the house, just clean it up and be sure to use something to get rid of ALL the scent so she can’t smell it/associate it with pottying.

When she does go outside, be sure to praise her and pet her immediately – make a big deal!  🙂 maybe have a few treats in your pocket and give her a little something when she goes where you want.

Good luck!!

@MrsUNClover:  So cute! Look at those giant feet!

For us, house breaking was all about diligence. Right after a meal, puppy goes outside until she pees. Right after a nap, puppy goes outside. You will start to recognize what she does when she needs to pee (our furbaby spins in circles and sniffs around), so immediately pick up the puppy and bring her outside.

They very quickly start to associate outside with peeing. Even when our little man had accidents when he was first learning, they would be right beside the door. We were just too slow to get there, and he didn’t give himself enough time. The more you can bring them outside, the better. Also, we made sure when we brough him home that his first pee was outside, not inside.
