1.Get a puppy crate. It makes house training much easier.
2.Let your puppy sleep in the bedroom, at least the first few nights. This whole experience is scary for a pup. Don't make him sleep in the laundry room. Put a crate next to your bed so you can reassure him.
3. Baby gates are your friend. Use them to keep the puppy out of places you don't want her to destroy.
4. Supervise. Supervise. Supervise. If you cannot watch him like a hawk, he needs to be in his crate or in his "room", see below.
5.Set up a puppy room for when you can't supervise. Pick a small area like a bathroom or kitchen, block it off with baby gates. Add a bed in one corner and pee pads or a dog "toilet" in another.
6. Pick a potty spot. If you don't want Sparky pooping all over the yard as an adult , pick one area and take him directly there when it's potty time.
7.Set a daily routine. House training proceeds more smoothly if your puppy knows what to expect from her day.
8.Enroll in a puppy class. Your pup will learn some basic obedience, but the real benefit of puppy classes is socialization with other puppies and people.
9. Don't believe everything you read on the internet. Not all advice is good advice. Take everything with a grain of salt. Even my advice!
10. Make sure everyone is on the same page. Discuss the puppy rules with your whole family. Figure out who will do what, and when. Pick one set of training cues and stick with them.
