Crate (or Kennel) Training
We believe that crate training is the easiest and most natural way to house train your dog. We begin crate training our puppies at 5 weeks by introducing them to a crate and providing other areas for eating and "potty." We keep our puppies and their crate very clean, and they learn quickly to use their potty area and not soil their crate. This early training builds upon a puppy's natural instincts and paves the way for house-training later on.
There are lots of great materials about crate training available online. Your veterinarian will have valuable information as well.
