i had to get an exercise pen and potty pads to train one of my pomeranians (she is still a puppy). train your pup to "go potty" in the exercise pen on their own... yeah, they are technically going potty in the house, but once they go just throw out the old potty pad and out down a new one. it has helped so much!

have you had problems housebreaking them? i have never paper-trained a puppy, because i think it creates mixed messages. i only personally know one person who trained their puppy on "weewee" pads, and at 3 years old, his dog still pees on a pad in the house. yuck.

OP, glad your problems are resolved - well, pretty much anyway. A beagle is not the best type of dog to keep in an apartment, they're way too busy, but then you'd have the same problem with most dogs; except, of course, the miniature breeds. Congratulations on succeeding!

I last had a new pup over ten years ago, but I maintain the same recipe for housetraining. Build a large pen and put it next to your bed. Most dogs will not willingly foul their sleeping area, so will cry to be taken out. Normally, the moment you get them outside, they sniff around and do their business pretty quickly. Take them back to the room, play for a little while then put them back in the pen with their toys. Always worked pretty well for me, but then it also depends on the type of breed. This formula didn't work to perfection with Jack Russels, but I had no problem with larger dogs.
