You can go and put potty training in the search box. There will be many threads and great suggestions! I took Nolee out every 2 hours. Also after a meal or nap. I would say, "Go Potty Nolee". I would then praise him when he did his business and would bring him back inside. Good Luck! Congratulations!!!

Schedule! Get him on a consistent schedule and follow the same basic routine every day. Personally, I would suggest outdoor training but it's different for everyone. I'd prefer Jackson to think peeing/pooping in the house is bad, period. lol. Even on a pad. Out every hour or so. Let him out after he eats and drinks. They go alot as puppies!

I got Bailey 2 weeks ago and he was 8 weeks. I brought him home and we did kitty litter training. It onlt took about 3 days and he goes to the box to do his business.
For the first 2 days/night I put the litter in his crate, on the 3rd morning i left it out and have not placed it in the crate at night since. Now that said, I have a "med' size crate that Bailey is in, I also used a cardbord box for the litter, one that like you canned vegs would come in since regular litter boxes are to tall for him to reach into, and I collected a bunch of them to replace. On day 5 I started placing 3 peepads around the litter box mainly to keep the litter off the rug, now he will use both the litter or pads.
I wish you the best!

I think some of it depends on your situation: do you live in a house, or an apartment (particularly one that isn't on the first floor)? Do you live in a place with really cold winters? Will your dog have to be alone a lot during the day? If so, pad training might be the most convenient.
We have pad trained our Yorkie and Maltese, but we also take them outside. When we move from our apartment to a house, I would love to train them to go outside more, but we need the pads for when we are at work. I didn't find that it confused either of them to use pads and outdoors--they use the pad in the apartment, but will go on the grass if we're outside. The downside is they haven't learned to "tell" us they have to go to the bathroom, they just go to their pad.
No matter what you do, just remember to be patient--your puppy will get it, but it will take consistency and effort on your part.

I know you have probably heard this many times before, but I just got my yorkie baby tonight at 7 pm. she was very calm in the car ride home, and we stopped by a pet store to get her a crate and leash.
we live in a apartment complex, and got home at a very late time and it's been really cold. I've read that once you get home you have to have them outside to establish a potty area, but she got to shivering because it was so cold, I took her inside. She is almost 8 weeks old and will be going to the vet on monday to make sure everything is ok.
Also, the breeder said she was having a little bit of a problem with flees behind her neck, but said she was too young to use FrontLine on. What does that mean??? What can I do to get rid of these flees.
She went into her crate pretty easily tonight and is now sleeping in it. I am staying up until she wakes up so i can take her outside so she can go.
I would appreciate all the help I can get. THANKS.

I need some advice,
I have timmy now a month and he will go and scratch at the door when he wants to go out and poop..but wont when he needs to pee....and also pee in the house
i take him out around the clock when I am here..which is most of the time.. he only ever left alone for up 4 hours....
When i take him out he will pee so its not as if im just leaving him out to poo I do wait for him to do both and praise him and all that....
He sleeps in the bed with us.. and when he needs to go in the night he goes to the end of the bed and barks.. i take him out and he pee and poo.. but i think he has pee during the night in the bed.. so i reckon he only waking us up for the pooing.. what do ye all think?? could it be marking?? other than that he grand, I love him to bits...
Any advise pls
