What is the best way to train my puppy to go out side? I have heard of crate training but how does it work? Spirit (my 9 wk old puppy) she does go in the crate at night and when we go out (most time out about an hour), but boy does she cry and bark I have put toys and a nice blanket in there. But when we are home during the day that is when she has her accidents. I do bring her out it feels like every 1/2 hour Yikes!!!! Please any suggestion s?
