Help for housetraining problems

Our question this week was:

I am having trouble housetraining my puppy - what should I do?

This is a very common problem with puppy owners. You should read this article (House Training Schedules) about puppy training. It is important to know how long your puppy can "hold it". For example, a 3-month old puppy can only "hold" it for 3 to 4 hours. You must have a schedule that allows you to frequently take your puppy outdoors to a designated "toilet" area often! And you need to reward her when she goes. Also, It is important not to punish your pup! Read the article - I think it will really help!

Our question this week came from Bonnie J. in London, England.
