Indoor Newspaper Method for Your Teacup
Start with inside papers – First, place papers or
pretreated “Pee Pads” where you want your puppy to go potty. (You
can also use the scent of your pup’s own urine or feces.) Because
they’re scented with a chemical attracting your puppy to use them,
scented pads help with housebreaking. As soon as you see your pup
doing the “pre-potty dance” (walking around and sniffing), gently
lift him up (without saying a word) and place him on the paper/pad.
Then praise him when he performs.
Next, move the papers - Once your Pomeranian puppy has
mastered the papers on a regular basis, move the papers closer to
the door or place another set outside
The Outside Method
Training your Teacup Pomeranian puppy to first go potty inside
the house on newspapers (or litter boxes) works for many owners.
However, just be aware that it can also cause your puppy to keep on
peeing inside the house once the papers are removed. Some owners

- Crate training – Crate training not only stops your
Pomeranian puppy from messing in your house, but also
teaches him he can “hold it” and not go potty just because he
feels the urge.
- Stick with a schedule – As soon as your puppy awakens
in the morning, take him immediately outside where he’s to go
potty. Do the same after he eats a meal. (It’s also important to

It is very rewarding to for the dog owner when their puppy is
trained. It is very important to be persistant from the begining.
If you are not, then your puppy might develop bad habits that will
be very hard to break once he is used to them. From the
begining try some of these tips.
- Always remember that puppies don't have the endurance level of
an adult dog. They find it difficult to control their bladder and
bowels for a long time. So, give them some time to develop outdoor
- Don't 'paper-train' your Pomeranian puppy during those initial
days of potty training. Once you paper-train him indoors, you will
have to train him all over again for outdoor potty habits.
- Confine your Pomeranian puppy in a crate when you are sleeping/
outdoors or not watching him (Crate Training). Different crates in
different styles can easily be purchased from pet stores.
- During those potty training days, see that you follow a routine
for the Pomeranian puppy. Make him go to bed/ get up from bed at the
same time every day.
- While potty training, make your Pomeranian puppy eat dry/ bolus
food (especially if you feed him packaged food). This way he will
have solid stools.
- Whenever you see that your Pomeranian puppy is trying to finish
the task inside, alert him by saying "No" or clapping your hands,
and carefully lift him outside and wait for him to finish the task.
- During the initial training phase, don't scold, punish or
reprimand him if he evacuates inside. But, make him understand that
it is not proper.

you want him to potty) everyday.
- Praise your puppy whenever he eases himself outdoors.
- Don't confine the puppy in rooms that have carpets or rugs. Keep
the floor bare, so that it is easier to clean if the puppy potties
- Be patient when you take him to potty. Give him time to evacuate
completely. Sometimes, he may take two to three tries.
- Always make sure you clean the puppy's potty place afterwards
- If your puppy is four months or older and still hasn't learn to
potty outside, consult a veterinarian to sort out the problem
