Stella is my first puppy, I got her when she was 8 Weeks, and I was fully prepared for any accidents, the potty training, the accidents, and the teething. A few Week went by and Stella went out regularly,.she learned which door to paw it when she wants to go out, and that she should only go outside. She has only had 2 accidents which were within her first week home. I did crate train Stella, and now she choses to sleep in there but I now leave the door open. She wakes up around 6-7 a.m, sits at my bedroom dooor and whines, when I open it she runs downstairs, and waits for me to open the door to the backyard, after shes done she comes inside and continues sleeping. She's about 3 months now and continues.this routine. So, how did you guys train your pups?
