The easiest way of house training a puppy is to use crate training. Dog crates are containers which come in different kinds: plastic, soft fabric or wire mesh. I would recommend the plastic kind. The crate should be large enough that the puppy or dog can enter, lie down and turn around but not large enough that the puppy could defecate in one corner and lie in another.
The crate will become its den which he will not soil. However, if it’s big enough that he can make a den in one corner and have space in another corner which is outside its den, he may soil that other corner. So don’t get one too big or you will defeat your purpose.
When you first bring a young puppy into your house, you need to be prepared and to have time to work on house training. A puppy needs to be taken out every half hour to hour. If you can’t do that, training is going to be difficult.
Times When Your Puppy Needs To Go Outside
There are also various times when a puppy usually needs to go outside:
as soon as he wakes up in morning
whenever he wakes up from a nap
after a play session or training session
after any excitement
before he goes to bed at night.
