Making potty training as simple and drama-free as possible

The House Training course


Yes, you CAN house train your dog (even if they've had a lot of accidents!)

House training can be… frustrating, to put it mildly.

But there is good news: even if you feel like you’re drowning in pet stain remover, it’s not too late. There is a light at the end of this tunnel. We can help you save your carpets – and your sanity.

This course will give you a step-by-step plan that works for all work schedules and all living situations. 

This is a self-study online course with video and written lessons. When you register, you get lifetime access. There are no recurring fees, no expiration dates.

From the Puppy Survival School series

Until now, this course was sold only as a package deal with the other seven Puppy Survival School courses, intended to be a complete puppy training system. 

But what if you don’t need the whole system? You might have most of the puppy-raising challenges covered, but need help with one area. Or you might have an adult dog, so you don’t need all the puppy-specific stuff.

So we decided to offer some of the Puppy Survival School courses for sale individually, as “mini” courses, starting with House Training. These mini courses are quick and easy to get through, but full of practical advice you can start implementing right away.


The course structure:

The house training strategy – An easy-to-remember strategy you can use no matter what your situation is like. Got a puppy or an adult dog? Live in a house with a yard or an apartment on the tenth floor? Work from home or away from home? Yep, we got everybody covered! 


The step-by-step plan – Exactly how to put the strategy into action. After a bit of practice, you’ll be able to follow this plan in your sleep (which is helpful when your new pup has you all sleep-deprived)


Tips for leveling up and making progress – Wondering how on earth you’re supposed to gradually go from the point where potty training takes up your entire life 24/7, to the point where Sparky is fully house trained and you can stop thinking about it? This section explains.


Troubleshooting – Answers to common (and not-so-common) questions.

You'll learn:

  • How to house train your puppy when you work all day
  • What to do when your dog refuses to go to the bathroom outside, or when you’re watching
  • What to do if your dog pees as soon as you bring him inside
  • How dogs instinctively “potty train” themselves and how you can take advantage of those instincts
  • The right way to handle accidents
  • How to use “real life rewards” for house training (helpful for newly-adopted dogs who aren’t interested in food rewards)
  • The common yet surprising ways people make their potty-training problems worse

What's NOT included:

Since this course was originally designed as part of a puppy training system, it doesn’t include foundation stuff like instructions for crate training or other basic management tactics. Crate training isn’t strictly required for house training, but it usually makes the process a bazillion times easier. 

So this course is for people who already know these basics, and just need targeted help with the house training thing.

It also does not include access to our forums or live webinars/Q&A’s.

If you’d like help with crate training and all the other puppy basics, or you’re interested in a more interactive experience, consider joining the complete Puppy Survival School program!


When you join the House Training course, you'll also get access to:

Dog Training Essentials – This mini course will set you up for success with house training, AND give you a foundation for any other training you want to do. It’ll teach you: 

  • How to correctly use food in training
  • How to structure a dog training session for best results 
  • All about the training concepts and terms you’ll need to know to start thinking like a dog trainer 

Achievement badges – House training can be dull, thankless work. People go nuts over the flashy dog training stuff like tricks or agility, but no one seems to care when your dog has fewer accidents this week than he did last week.

Well. WE care.

We know you work hard for this stuff, and it’s just as big an achievement as Roll Over and Play Dead, darn it!

With badges, we aim to give you a fun way to track your progress and celebrate all your wins along the way.

Not just for puppies! This works for grownup dogs, too.
