It helps to put some dog pee on the newspaper because the pup will identify the smell and associate it with going to the bathroom.When your puppy has an accident blot a little of the urine on to the newspaper. Teach your dog by positive means instead of negative reactions.When you catch your puppy in the act of going to the bathroom in the wrong place tell him firmly in a 'not happy voice' , "Nooooo don't pee there." Then take him to the newspaper or take him outside.If you shout and carry on at him it will only frighten him and he will soon learn to sneak off and do it where you can't see him.Make sure you still have him on the leash and that he accompanies you and watches every step of the procedure. If you are constantly finding puddles and messes follow the above procedure with one small change.Put the tissue on the ground and then tell the puppy in a happy voice, 'Good place... When you take him to the puddle or poop and he averts his eyes and doesn't want to know anything about it, tie his leash to something nearby such as a table leg or chair leg. Leave him like this for a few minutes while you walk away and ignore him.
Make him look at the 'accident' It is very likely that your pup will not want to look at what you are pointing to and he will avert his eyes from what you are showing him.
(Also known as house breaking) If you are able, take your puppy outside once an hour. You can call it what ever you want as long as you are consistent with it.
For example: While he is peeing say, "Do a pee, good boy, well done" or "Go potty, great work, good dog".
When you go out you have the choice of putting him outside or containing him to one room or area. Imagine if you really needed to pee and you were locked in a small cage. Could you hold it for 5 hours until someone got home? Now imagine your puppy is a small child locked in a cage. You can't expect your puppy to hold it for hours on end.
In some very cold climates putting your puppy outside is not an option. You should expect that there will be pee or poop on the floor when you get home.
