Keep the puppy on a regular feeding schedule and take away his food between meals.

Take puppy out to eliminate first thing in the morning and then once every 30 minutes to an hour. Also, always take him outside after meals or when he wakes from a nap. Make sure he goes out last thing at night and before he’s left alone.

Take puppy to the same spot each time to do his business. His scent will prompt him to go.

Stay with him outside, at least until he’s house trained.

When your puppy eliminates outside, praise him or give him a treat. A walk around the neighborhood is a nice reward.
