Bring treats outside and make a potty schedule. First thing in the morning, take him to the bathroom, and reward him with a treat when you goes to the bathroom outside. In 2 hours, take him back outside and do the same thing until eventually he knows to go outside and you start taking him out less frequently.

If you own a dog, you've heard this rule: 1 year for Fido equals 7 years for you.

Turns out, the math isn't that simple.

Dogs mature more quickly than we do early on.

So the first year of your fuzzy friend's life is equal to about 15 human years.
