|Also why doesnt your mother want the dog in the house?? If it is because the dog might go potty in the house, chew on things etc etc. I would tell her now that a puppy kept outside till its older will not change these things. The only way to house train a puppy or dog is to have it in the house. Its also the only way to teach it to not chew on things.
I would recommend going to ur library or to the book store and get a book on raising a puppy or even googling puppy care. To train you puppy you are much better off keeping it in the house. Have a crate for the puppy(only big enough that the puppy can stand, turn around, and lay down in comfortablly-this is important to help with potty training-if you already have a bigger crate than buy a divider for the crate so you can make it smaller while the pup is learning), when the puppy is taken out of the crate-always monitor it!!!!! no unsupervised house rambling, this way he wont chew on anything & you can watch him to see if he has to go potty & you can take him outside. Whenever ur pup goes potty outside praise him, make a fuss, and give him a treat. If he has an indoor accident(and u catch him while hes doing it) say NO, take him outside & when he goes then praise him. Never rub his nose in it or anything like that, it doesnt work. You can also paper train your puppy-google it & it will explain how.
There are so many other things i could outline for puppies, but the best for u is to get a book & read up on raising a puppy & if your mom still wants it outside you can show her the book & explain why its better to have them inside.
