Be patient and allow for some mistakes during toilet training. And don't expect instant results. Your puppy may not gain full bowel and bladder control until he or she is 6 months old.
Step 1 - Designate an area where you want your puppy to go to the toilet. If you have an outside area, make it the garden. If you live in an apartment, use a dog loo or wee mat on the balcony or in an allocated room.
Step 2 - Take your puppy to this area when you think they need to go. Puppies almost always need to go after a meal, after a snooze and when they’re excited. A common sign is sniffing around and around to the point of circling as they look for a suitable place to squat. Once at your designated area, wait until the job is done.
Step 3 - Praise them and offer a treat. By associating the designated toilet area with a reward, they are more likely to continue using it. Remember - patience, persistence and consistency!
