How to Housebreak Your Puppy While Working Full-Time

Approximately 68% of households, or about 85 million families, in the United States own a pet, many of which are puppies. This should come as no surprise as puppies often melt the hearts of anyone around and grow up to be great companions and, in many cases, a member of the family. But with all of that cuteness comes great responsibility. These furry friends also require attention, food and potty training, the latter of which is easier to do earlier in their life rather than later. 

While there may be some households that have a responsible family member that can be at the dog's beck and call whenever the puppy shows signs of needing a potty break, this is not often the case for a majority of homes. Thankfully, working full-time does not automatically mean you cannot be a great puppy-owner who can effectively potty train their new furry companion.
