There are many dog house training manuals available online and in book stores and the best ones generally focus on the two main methods of housebreaking a dog which are the direct method and the paper method and basically most other methods are simply variations of these two.
Both the direct and paper method are equally effective and you can choose which ever one you prefer or a combination of the two. Sometimes however, your circumstances will dictate which method is more appropriate where you live.
If, for instance, you live in a high rise building and getting out to the outside world takes a few minutes then the paper method will definitely suit you better. This basically involves selecting a room, preferably a small one, in your home and designating it for your puppy or dog to do their business.
The direct method works on similar principles but rather than selecting a room inside, you should select an area of your garden where it is appropriate for your puppy or dog to ‘make their numbers’ as they say.
Good dog house training manuals will describe the two methods, and more, in detail and explain the different stages involved depending on whether you are training a young puppy, who will need the toilet every hour, or an older dog who may require extra attention but do not believe the old adage that ‘you can’t train an old dog new tricks’.
Using a good manual and the correct training methods will prevent lots of scrubbing of floors and carpets but there will always be a few accidents starting off so remember to have patience.
