Training Dog to Go OutsidePut a leash on the dog and it goes everywhere you do in the house. Be sure to feed it once daily only and monitor when it drinks. Be sure to get it outside before an hour has passed. Because the dog is constantly with you it may or may not try to use the carpet, but a sharp yank on the leash will give the dog a clear message that it's not supposed to do that. When you take the dog outside allow it to run and play with it. The movement will stimulate it to relieve itself outside.
