How to housetrain your puppy or newly adopted dog seems like a mystery at times. Puppies seem to have no control over their adorable little bodies (because they do have very little early on) and an adult dog that is not yet housetrained seems to have no idea what you want (because he really doesn’t.) Some pet owners give in and surrender the puppy, others give in and live with cleaning up messes.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

The fact is house training your puppy is very simple and straightforward. I won’t say that it is easy, because it does require a high degree of consistency, but the steps required to housetrain a puppy or adult dog is far from complex.

And there is only one book(let) that you will ever need to housetrin your puppy: Way to Go! How to Housetrain a Dog of Any Age

This clear, concise booklet written by Patricia McConnell and Karen London can help your puppy or adult dog learn a lifetime of good housetraining habits. It’s perfect for a first-time dog or puppy owner, but can also serve as a great reference for experienced owners that are stuck on an unusually difficult training problem with a new puppy.
