  12. Housebreaking questions

    Puppy Help
    I feel silly (again) asking all these questions, especially since I keep telling you all that I've owned a few dogs -- raised from puppyhood -- before. But here's something I honestly can't remember: the housebreaking transition period. I remember accidents and trying to get the pup outside...

    I'm hoping that in the very near future I will be adopting a new puppy and I am already brushing up on the finer points of housebreaking a puppy.
