Housebreaking / Potty Training is a term to train dogs to pee / poop (pee / poop) out of the house or a place that has been provided, in other words, do not pee / poop carelessly in the house. Housebreaking is the first thing to teach your puppy. In general, the puppy can not control bladder and bowels until the age of 12 weeks. If your puppy ages younger than that, it takes extra patience to teach.

Set the schedule start time for puppy housebreaking .
Try to get up every morning at the same time, take the puppy out of the house. Feed the puppy at the same time for a few days and immediately take it out as soon as he finished eating.
Pay attention to your puppy for signs such as sniffing, circling and pacing.
This usually means it’s time to go pee / poop and if you see a sign – a sign that, immediately take it out. If you find him middle pee / poop, say “No” firmly and bring it out so that your puppy can finish it and give praise when he does it outside. Never punish your puppy by hitting or more because this will only teach them to fear you. If you find the dirt puppy in the house, but did not see when he did it, do not then punish him because he can not associate the punishment acquired by the action he has done and that there is only going to confuse.
Choose a word to action, such as “Out” or “Pee outside” , using the word / phrase is consistently so that the puppy will learn that word as a command. Always take him to the same place outside when going pee / poop. The smell of the place will encourage him to pee / poop in that place again and if he does, give him praise.
When you are not at home, the puppy should be put into the cage.
You have to buy a bigger cage to place the puppy grows up, but put a separator inside until enough for the puppy to turn around and lie down. Instinctively, a puppy will not want to contaminate his own place. Be careful not to let the puppy in the cage more than 4-6 hours, or she may have no choice but to pee / poop in place themselves. If you are often not at home such as work, then go home at noon to issue a puppy or ask someone to remove the puppy if you are not able to go home.
If you choose not to enter into a cage puppy when he was not at home, then put him in a room with a floor that anti-absorption.
Place the training pads (special pads for housebreaking) at one end of the room, while the beds and toys at the other end. Generally, a puppy will prefer to pee / poop on materials that absorb, but they tend to avoid doing so in bed alone. Ideally, he would be interested in training pads. This method may take longer than the cage method.
Some things to keep in mind when making housebreaking:
• Give praise when your puppy to do it properly
• Keeping routines
• Never punish him physically when they are found being pee / poop
• Do correcting / reprimand except when you find him pee / poop
