Dogs have to learn bowel etiquette much quicker than humans, and these helpful steps will make sure your paper-trained pooch becomes man's best friend, not your carpet's worst nightmare.
You Will Need
* An untrained dog
* A large supply of newspapers
* Puppy gates
* An area of your home to enclose, preferably one with a tile or vinyl floor
* Your dog's bed, toys, and food and water bowls
* Dog treats
* More patience
If the weather and circumstances permit, you can paper-train a dog at the same time as you're housebreaking her. A small dog that's been paper-trained can also be trained to use a litter box, which is helpful for homebound or elderly dog owners—or owners who like to sleep in!
