House-training should start as a puppy.

Many breeders introduce their litters to crates before the pups even leave for their new homes. This saves the new owner an important step. The sense of security and structure that the crate provides proves valuable in so many ways. Dogs respond to crate training. Often, dogs will go into their crates on their own for periods of quiet time during the day, and they will sleep the whole night in their crates with nary a peep.
Always be patient with house-training, as this can sometimes be a trying time. Crates don't promise miracles, because we are still dealing with the immature body and mind of a puppy. With common sense and consistency, you will soon have a clean house dog. Soon life will be much easier for all of younot to mention for the carpeting!
