Help ensure safety.
Dog-related injuries are the second most common cause of children's hospitalization. Signs like these may help reduce your liability in case of dog injury.
Maintain proper hygiene.
Dogs don't wash their paws, and all too often they do their business where they please, so hospitals, churches and places where children gather aren't always the right places for people to bring their furry friends.

How to housetrain your dog

You finally got that Welsh corgi you always wanted – you pick it up from the breeder, bring it home… and now what? Housetraining has to begin immediately, because being consistent is the most important part of teaching any dog to do his or her business outside. Here are some tips we've gathered to help make sure this turbulent (and potentially messy) task goes as smoothly as possible.
When they're in a new environment, puppies will have accidents – they don't have the bladder control or a solid routine yet, so it's bound to happen. Stay calm when it does. Don't rub your animal's nose in his own feces or urine, as this is very threatening behavior and will only serve to frighten your dog. Try to catch your dog in the act and at most utter a sharp "no" or "bad," then take him outside, a line dresses and let him finish in his usual spot, giving him a biscuit if he manages to finish in the right place. Clean up the mess in your house very thoroughly afterward, being careful not to yell or overreact.  
Pet Signs
Don't expect your puppy to be perfect just because he's really, really, really, really cute.
Until your puppy's schedule normalizes and bladder control improves – and this can take until the dog is anywhere from six to ten months old – take him outside every two hours as long as you're awake. Take the dog to the same spot every time if you can, and develop a keyword to repeat to the dog when he's doing his business. After a few months, your pet will be conditioned to respond to that keyword and know what to do.
Dogs like to do their business when they wake up, after they eat, and after they play, so schedule walks for those times. Try to get your dog to do his business on separate occasions from play time, even returning home and going right back out again if necessary.
Small dogs can be kept in cages or crates if you're gone for a few hours – they'll be uninclined to soil these areas because like all of us, dogs don't like to sit in their own filth. Keep your puppy in a small area while you go out and take him for a walk when you go home, praising him and giving him a treat if he does his business correctly.
