Now that you’ve adopted the cutest puppy, you have to house train him as soon as possible. Here are five simple steps to get you on the right track.

Step 1 – Watch your puppy like a hawk. Do not give freedom to roam around the entire house.

Step 2 – Find a place outside for your pup to go. Take him to that place each time you take him out. Give him a verbal cue like “do your business.” Use this cue before he goes and while he’s going. After he goes, give him praise and a treat. Do this consistently every time you take him out.

Step 3  -If your pup has an accident in the house, you need to interrupt him immediately. Take him to his spot outdoors and let him finish his business.

Step 4 –Clean up any accidents with an enzymatic odor eliminatorYou can use products like Natures Miracle or Urine Gone. These will change the chemical structure of urine and feces and will totally eliminate the scent.

Step 5 – Set up a consistent feeding and watering schedule. Do not leave the food out all day. Your pup will likely have to go 10 to 15 minutes after eating.

Remember, your pets count!
