How Many Times a Day Does My Dog Need to Be Walked?

PetSugar Q + A: How Do I Housetrain a Pup When I Work All Day?

Here's a question submitted by PetSugar reader short stack in the PetSugar Q + A group. Check out my tips, and offer your own:

"I am at work all day and need effective ways to housetrain my 1 year old puppy! How do you teach them to hold it in?"

We've tackled puppy potty training and pee pad techniques before, but this tricky situation depends on the individual pet. Personally, crate training my pooch helped with this matter, as dogs are reluctant to "go" where they have to rest. All day is a long time for many pups to hold it, so it'd be easiest if you had someone start walking the canine midday and then slowly spaced out the time between walks.
