Hi, this is Zephyr Clarke-Dolberg, with Miami Dog Training, in Miami, Florida. In this clip, we're going to talk about how to house train an older dog. The same principles apply with an older dog as with a younger dog. We want to limit their opportunity to go out, to go where they shouldn't go. So, how do we do that? With a crate. Crate training is house training, and and eventually their crate applies to the rest of the house, but we really want to limit their opportunity and control their environment. So, by bringing them out of the le, bringing them out on a leash immediately to the designated area from the crate let's em' know that that they want to, that they get to go outside to go potty. If they've gone number one and number two outside now you can bring them inside for some free time. As they get better at holding it you get better at giving them free time, or more time outside of the crate. And house, go in your house, there you go. I usually just tell em' to go in their house, put em' in the crate. This is an adult dog. He can hold it for eight hours. This is Zephyr Clarke-Dolberg of Miami Dog Training
