Tips & Warnings

  • Puppy potty training pads are treated with a distinct odor that encourages your dog to use them. They can be effective for smaller breed dogs but a larger dog should be encouraged to do his business outside.
  • If you use training pads, always keep the pad in the same place and change it when it's soiled.
  • You may need to buy several crates as your dog grows.
  • Accidents will happen so don't get discouraged. House training a dog takes time and consistency.
  • Never punish your dog for an accident that you didn't see happen.
  • Never hit your dog or rub his nose in his urine or feces. Rubbing his nose it it can make him very sick.
  • Provide a constant source of water for your dog when he's not in his crate.
  • Don't leave your dog in a crate for more than six hours at a time.
