Housebreaking doesn’t only have to do with a dog going pee or poop in the house. It also has to do with the dog’s overall behavior in the house. And the distinction he or she makes between inside and outside. So for those of you who are interested in having a housebroken dog please give that some thought. Does your dog play inside the same way it does outside? Does your dog behave as though he or she owns the house? To have a housebroken dog the answer to those questions should be no.
