Here are some small dog house training facts.
You can do indoor dog potty training or outdoor, you will follow the same steps. Some people that live in high-rise apartments or small spaces prefer the indoor dog potty training. You just need to designate the potty space where you want your dog to go.
If you don’t teach your new best friend not to pee and poop in your house, he won’t be your friend for long!

Before you start, here are some dog potty training aids you will want to get.
Small dog crate so they have a clean, warm place to rest and sleep
Nature's Miracle to remove the scent from accidents
Dog Potty Training Pads so they know "where" to go if they can't make it outside in time
Natural Dog treats to give when they do the “deed” in the correct spot
A small bathroom or laundry room to keep them in. You need to keep them confined until they learn where to go. If you want to keep them in your living room or bedroom, I recommend buying a small dog playpen.
Dog Potty Training Tips
A new puppy (or dog) that is not housebroken should be restricted to one of these three situations at all times:
1. Inside under your constant and attentive supervision.
2. Outside with you.
3. Confined to his crate/den.
Steps to potty train small dogs
Determine where you want your dog to go potty.
Know when your puppy needs to go.
Keep your puppy under your constant and attentive supervision, or confined to his crate, when indoors.
Take your dog to his designated toilet area every hour or whenever he needs to go (see Step 2 in the guide), whichever is less, and teach him to go on command.
Spend time playing with or training your puppy or take him for a nice walk.
