5. Crate Size
A great way to start potty training is to use a crate!
This is especially useful at night. When inside the crate, your puppy will likely let out a little yelp or cry when they have to go potty.
If you are using this method it is important to get the correct size crate for your dog. Dogs don't like to go to the bathroom in their ‘home’ or sleeping den, but… if the crate is too big they might just go to a corner and do their business there.
If you want to crate train and continue to use the crate as your puppy grows into an adult dog, you may want to consider buying a crate that has a divider, like this one →"MidWest Homes for Pets Dog Crate".
That way when your puppy is young you can use the divider to make sure they don't go potty in the open space. As your dog grows you can just remove the divider!
