Teaching your pup to go potty where you prefer is a top priority in most homes. Choose where your primary potty will be and get started on training to that area right away. Most puppies are getting the hang of potty training by 6 months with consistent feedback. It is common for dogs to have set backs when moving to a new home, even if they were potty trained previously. It is important to plan for solid management and train from the start to help your dog learn good habits as quickly as possible. For some dogs, they may be reliable in a few days and for others it may take a couple of months to get reliable behavior.
Make sure you maintain good supervision and reinforcement until you are confident they have a solid grasp on this basic behavior. They should be indicating when they need to go, without you planning the potty breaks. See your vet if your pup really struggles with potty training or has a sudden relapse that doesn’t recover quickly.
