Guy Knows It nailed it! I used the "crate method" on my puppy and his potty training went very well.
Do not be suckered in by those training pads. Those will teach your puppy that it is ok to go indoors, the dog will not understand when it is older that it must go outside.
Your puppy looks to your for guidance and wants you to teach it what to do, just like its mother did. Start young and be clear and consistent.
