The keys to successful house training are: 

Containment

Schedule

o When they first wake up in the morning;

o After a play session (or even sometimes during!);

o After a nap;

o Just after drinking;

o Just before or just after he eats;

o After chewing on a bone or chew toy

o If he hasn’t been out for an hour or two.

If you have rescued an adult dog, the best tactic is to pretend your dog is an 8 week old puppy and start from scratch!

Praise

Odor Removal

Other Tips

Finally, another useful method is to have a rolled up newspaper ready at hand. Every time your dog eliminates in the house, pick it up and hit yourself over the head while repeating, “I forgot to watch my dog! I forgot to watch my dog!”

Remember, house-training accidents are your mistake, not the dog’s.
