House breaking your pit bull puppy comes with patience but it is not a hard task ..
You will have to monitor their daily activity and if you cannot observe them they must go in their crates. Potty training a puppy is a process, I know it is hard to keep them in a crate and you may feel bad at times but it pays of in the long run.
House breaking can be a whole lot easier if you can put them on a feeding schedule. Puppies generally eliminate ten to twenty minutes after they eat or drink and they also like to eliminate after they exert themselves. If you keep those tips in mind you can cut down 80% of the accidents.
In our busy lives we are not home all the time to let them out to go potty thus be sure to crate them. A four month old puppy can hold on for at least 4 hours and the holding time will increase with age. Accidents at this age is normal and never punish your puppy for this it is not their fault. After you get home simply wipe them down with some baby shampoo in a moist towel and clean the cage thoroughly.
House breaking your pit bull puppy will get better over time ..
If you catch your puppy red handed simply express your dislike with a higher tone of voice something like NO! To startle them and immediately take them outside. When your puppy goes potty outside praise them so that they know it is OK to do it outdoors but not indoors.
