#4 - To help with housebreaking.
The biggest and most common complaint that owners have is that their Pom pees and poos all over the house. This can be 100% fully resolved by using a playpen at the right times.
You will want to bring your Pom outside as soon as he wakes up (both morning and after naps), right before bed, 20 minutes after a meal, and every few hours as his age dictates (every 3 hours for a 3-month old, 4 for a 4-month, etc.).
And, when you can keep your Pom literally right by your side, and you can fully give your attention to him, at the first sign of needing to go to the bathroom, you can pick him up and bring him right out.
However, the playpen should be used for every single other time other than these two instances. If so, there will never be another accident in the house.
Ahead, we will discuss how to set up the playpen.
