I desperately need tips and tricks to house training a puppy, what works best?


Please help! I just recently got a beautiful 16 week old female boxer. I absolutely adore her. However, the constant accidents inside my house are starting to drive me insane. I take her outside almost every hour during the day and she does nothing. As soon as I bring her back inside, she squats! What do I do???

    Thanks Ari, this is definitely one of the options we are considering. My boyfriend and I both work full time, so I understand she's not going to be able to hold it in for nine hours, but the night time accidents are just a slap in the face.

    Great answer Fawntia. Crating is probably very important here. Also, it sounds like positive reinforcement when the puppy goes outside might be helpful.
