    Worked for us

    By LouhiMom on May 2, 2019

    It's not magic, and it might take more than 7 days, but the technique works to train a puppy to go outside. You don't have to be home all day, but you do have to take the dog out fairly frequently the first few days. If you work full time, plan on starting on a weekend, as I did. It took 2 weeks to get my 11 week old puppy reliably house trained. Now, she doesn't poop anywhere but the backyard - she doesn't even poop while on walks.

    So easy, my kids did it

    By Rcab on Aug 25, 2018

    This book was so helpful with our new puppy. We had gotten close to house trained but it wasn't 100% of the time. I bought the book and assigned my 12 and 8 year old to read and follow this book to have her potty trained by the end of the week. They created the schedule and followed it and were successful!!

    30 inch portable crate

    By Delish on Jul 19, 2018

    The price was beyond reasonable. My puppy can play in the yard without continuous supervision. I can take it when I travel or visit. Great quality The book was easy to read and follow I love Chewy.com

    New Puppy!

    By Momof3dogs on Feb 12, 2018

    We were looking for an easier way to train our new puppy. I guess you could say that we were looking for a method. I read this book in 2 days and it has worked great! We have had her for several weeks now and only had 1 accident. I love that they give you schedules. We have had to tweak the schedules based on our work times, but it has not affected the training. Reading the book helped me realize the wrong things that I was doing in the past.

    Not enough information definitely not recommended

    By Lapoima on Mar 13, 2018

    This book does not have good information about Housebreaking a puppy. I am very disappointed. Not worth buying it.
