Hello Friends,

House training a one-year-old dog is much the same as house training a puppy. The main differences are that your one-year-old dog can "hold it" for longer (up to eight hours) and that your one-year-old dog may be more stubborn. She may have gotten used to going potty wherever necessary and may resist change. However, with consistency and praise, she can be house trained. Keep your dog in a crate or small contained area when he cannot be supervised.

Thanks & Regards
