First of all, he probably won't give you any clues at this point... he's still a baby. Take him out often.... after he eats or drinks, after he wakes up, after he plays.... to the point where you think you are outside more than you are in. Always try to take him to the same area. When puppy does pee or poop praise the heck out of him.... to the point where your neighbors will think that you have lost it!When training our most recent guy this winter, I always told him we were going to 'peepee'. And while we were outside, I would say, "Go peepee for momma."You will have to watch him inside all of the time. If he does squat to pee, scoop him right up and take him out. I have never made a big deal out of the few mistakes that Zander has made in the house. Eventually, he will start giving you 'signs' which may only be him walking to the door and that's it. So you will have to learn to read him and his behaviors. Our guy now goes to the door and barks. He housetrained really easy and was asking to go out by the time he was 3 1/2 mos. old. Others use crates when housebreaking... hopefully Shannon will post some info on this. Good luck and enjoy!
