how do i potty train my puppy to go do his business outside?

There are a few articles on our site about housebreaking, like this one http://www.mypetsmart.com/petcare/articles/potty-training-your-puppy and this one http://www.mypetsmart.com/petcare/articles/house-training-101-learning-t.... Just make sure you watch him like a hawk, take him out at regular intervals, reward his appropriate eliminations with praise and treats, and keep him confined when you are not watching him. PetSmart also offers potty training classes and during the month of January 2011 we are offering free New Dog Orientation seminars every Saturday. Potty training is covered in those seminars as well.
