Potty training tip for owners of puppies: Restrict your puppy to a small area near the door and don't give him full access to the whole house. You can do this with a baby gate or an exercise pen.

A home can feel very big to a puppy, and he can get lost or fail to make it to the door because of the time it takes to get there. As he develops, you can then gradually give him access to more and more areas of the house.
