Well, as you all know, I will be getting a GSD in about 3 weeks. I'm a bit concerned with house training. Here is the approach I am taking: About 20 min. after ever meal, I'll take him outside to do his business. After a nap, I'll take him outside to do his business. (I'm a little worried about this one because if I fall asleep or he wakes up earlier than me and he goes... there's nothing I can do about it) If I see him sniffing around the house, I'll take him outside to do his business. I'm going to begin taking him out every hour when I first get him because a puppy doesn't really know when he's gonna go, he just goes. Similar to that of a human baby. My hopes are that he will eventually get used to doing his business outside so much that he'll just be at the door when he wants to go. I've read about ten thousand articles on the net and this is basically how I decided I will handle house training. Any opinions? Any corrections? What do y'all think? Any suggestions? Throw anything out there for me. Thank you all.
