All the Ways to Housebreak
I don't have a GSD yet, I'm looking into it. But I know when my new puppy comes, housebreaking is going to be an... interesting experience. The last time there was a puppy around, it was my mom's Mastiff, and we crate trained him. Eventually though, he began busting through the crate at night and sleeping in the kitchen (He slept there just fine on his own at four months old, no accidents nothing ripped up, anything) So needless to say our last crate training experience wasn't exactly textbook.
I know Crate Training is one of the best methods to go, I was just curious as to other methods that were out there for potty training. I'm not saying I will or won't use these methods, I just want to know what other ways there are of doing it.
How did you housebreak your dog?
The best older sibling I ever had was a German Shepherd Dog.
