1. Puppies are denning animals, be sure to use a crate/kennel for your puppy. Puppies will learn to keep their kennels nice and clean. False walls can do the trick within the kennel to allow proper space for your pet depending on size. Once you are ready to take your puppy out of the crate in the morning, lift them up out of the crate and take them directly outside.

2. While you’re outside with your pet, make sure you are rewarding your pup for any business they do outside. The key is to reward them immediately after they do their business.
