Paper training a new puppy (video)

An elderly couple bought a 3-month-old Chihuahua for a 3rd vaccination.
They have an old Silkie who is paper-trained. I enquired how they would train this new puppy. The Silkie may pee anywhere if the new puppy can do it and so it is important to confine the puppy early.

Video is produced.
1. No confinement.
2. Sometimes the new puppy will pee on the newspapers, meant for the Silkie in the kitchen. Most times anywhere in the apartment.  
3. The Silkie is paper trained by beating by the son, many years ago. Negative reinforcement training.

The couple did not want the 4 fences as they are too big. Buying a crate and paper training inside the crate is my proposal. See video.


1. Crate + newspapers
2. Playpen + newspapers
3. Playpen + grate
4. Crate

Urine smell

2-4 months best. Older rebellious.

Indoor and outdoor.

Patience, Perseverance and Regression.
