If your puppy does not do what you, forgive him and try to prevent it from happening again in the future.
2. Potty Training: Puppy likes to keep their beds clean. While you are around the house, puppies should be confined to his crate or designated areas - he should have a free hand to advance. Each time, go out with your puppy where you want him to remove. Using a word or phrase, he will associate with going to the toilet. If your puppy Pottier, reinforces good behavior with positive encouragement. If he does not, bring him inside and try again in 20 minutes. Then he Pottier, take you back and play with him for a while, and then put him back in his crate. During the night, he has to go, so set your alarm for one or two times during the night and out of her. Do not feed him or give him water before bedtime. After eating, wait 15 minutes and get him out.
3. The box: It should not be a place for punishing your dog, but he must chew his toys and feel comfortable being alone here at last. Water, blankets and toys should be part of the positive environment you create for your puppy. Keep the crate in your bedroom at first. Feed your puppy in his crate, put the toys in the crate and lock the door to the puppy out. When he shows interest in the cash - first out and then go and smell - bless him and give him treats. After he was good in the box, feeding him treats through the cage mesh. Gradually increase the amount of time in his crate while he was eating the treats, which begins in 10 seconds. If he starts to whine, you go too fast.
4. Go on a leash, collar the first. When he forgot it, attach the leash. When he forgot it, pick it up. Go around the house with him. When he walks away from you, do not move him to stop calling him. When he comes back to you, praise him. Do not keep going while he pressure on the leash, and it reinforces the habit.
After these behaviors was cemented, it's time for more advanced training as a puppy socialization, commands and specialized problems such as biting or barking. After that, it is important to take your puppy to the vet, and you may want to think the dog insurance.
