What are the steps I need to take to potty train my 2year old adopted toy Pomeranian?

I really don't want him peeing and soiling my carpets because I have a baby crawling around everywhere! So I want to figure out the steps for training this 2year old doggy right when he comes home! :) the family I am adopting him from says he only has accidents once in a while. PLEASE HELP:)

crate train the dog. that's your best bet. My boy came home (adopted) already potty trained but even then he still has his slip ups. So investing in a crate and training him to properly use it elevates the worry of accidents.

+ since you will be having children in the home a crate will give your dog somewhere to go that is safe and away from the family if that is what the dog chooses. My boy loves his crate though i call it his 'cave'.
