The importance of praising your puppy outside:
Always praise your puppy or new dog when they potty outside. You have to make sure that the praise happens right as the puppy or dog finishes. Remember most dogs only follow one step of causality, so if your puppy finishes and starts sniffing around when you praise, he might think you are praising him for sniffing. Each dog is different.

Potty Training Rules for Outside:
I recommend saving the praise for right when you think the puppy or dog is finishing up because you don’t want to interrupt the puppy and then have them finish inside.
If your puppy or dog does not go potty when you take him out, make sure to take him out again much sooner.
