Hints on Housebreaking

It is a good idea to limit the amount of human food your new puppy will get, as well as doggie treats. Make sure she really loves any treat you use as a training incentive. During her training age, she should get treats only when she responds to commands or expectations correctly. For example, if she potties on the pad or in her spot in the yard, she deserves a treat. Try to keep from treating her just because she is cute or she will expect treats all the time! When she potties in the wrong spot, show it to her, tell her no, pick or soak up the mistake with the potty pad, & show her where it belongs. Don’t treat her unless she does it right!
