Sample housetraining schedule

Here is a sample schedule for house training; you can change the times to better accommodate your daily schedule.


This schedule has you taking your puppy out a minimum of every hour and a half to start.

This will help you figure out your puppy’s personal potty schedule, start you both off with good habits, and start your housebreaking adventure off with success. As your puppy matures and he has house training success, you can extend the time between potty breaks.


If there are any backslides in house training, go back to a shorter schedule.
