Your puppy will learn whatever you teach her: She is eager to please and you are in charge of what she learns. Train her to eat and drink on a schedule to make house training quicker and easier on you and your puppy.
Feed and water your puppy twice a day. A puppy that eats and drinks all day long will pee and poop all day long. A puppy will have to relieve himself within 10 to 30 minutes after his meal so feeding him twice a day will cut down on the number of potential accidents.2
Practice consistency when you feed your puppy. Feed her at the same time, in the same manner and in the same place every day. She will feel more secure with a set schedule and will learn her routine more quickly.3
Put your puppy's food and water bowls down and stay with him while he eats and drinks. This will enable you to know when he has eaten his fill.4
Pick both bowls up when she walks away. Not only will this aid in her housebreaking but will discourage her from becoming a picky eater. Put the food down again at the next scheduled feeding.5
Remove all food and water by 7 pm so your puppy goes to bed with nothing in his stomach or bladder. This will increase the likelihood he will not have to potty once he goes down for the night.
