Dogs act mainly from habits that have been developed over a period of time and that fact can help you as a dog owner. Don't let your puppy create his own habits. Teach him the ones you want him to learn. Puppies have limitations it would be well to keep in mind. Your puppy's bladder is very small, so he can't wait very long before having to urinate. You'll need the character traits of patience and understanding to deal with your new pal's limitations.

Yelling at your puppy if he has an accident isn't a good idea. You need to keep in mind that patience is critical while training your new pal. If your puppy has an accident on the living room carpet, be gentle with him. Tell him "no" in a gentle way. Then pick him up and place him where you do want him to go potty. Then tell him to go potty in that place in your own words.

You would be wise to purchase a crate for your puppy to sleep in since he won't want to soil his bed. Your dog may enjoy owning his own dog playpen as you train him.

Be aware that there are certain times when your new pal is more likely to want to relieve himself. First thing in the morning is one of the times when your puppy will need to relieve himself. Your little pal will need to go potty after eating -- such as right after breakfast or after any other meal. Be sure to take your puppy to his designated toilet area before he goes to bed at night. Play time will probably activate your puppy's urge to relieve himself.

Your new pet needs close supervision. If he goes potty on his own outside, be sure to praise him immediately. If he should go potty inside the house, you need to gently but sternly let him know that isn't the right place to go. Be sure to praise your puppy when he does go in the correct place. He really needs your approval.

Your puppy will often let you know when he's about to relieve himself. Wandering off, sniffing and circling are signs that your puppy is ready to relieve himself. Maybe he'll go and stand at the door.

Patience and kindness goes a long way in dog training. Be sure to spend time training your new pal to urinate or deficate where you have chosen for him to go. The time and effort you put into training your new pal will be worth it when he knows the right time and place to relieve himself.
