After reading your article about toilet training, We did everything that was suggested with our new puppy. Every 1/2 hour we picked him up and placed him outside for a wee. After a week he was going to the back door to do his toilets. The accidents in the house were minimal. Now at 15 weeks he barks to let me know he needs to go out. We never needed training pads or newspaper just perseverance. Thanks for the advice.
