One of the most daunting tasks of the new puppy owner is of course teaching the pup not to pee or poop on your favorite area rugs or manage to stain your carpet in the most noticeable area of your home. Sure you can clean it up and spend lots of money removing the odor but it is best for all concerned to train the pup from the very first that pooping an peeing best be done outside the home. Puppies have the urge to eliminate themselves after 3 periods of their actions. They need to eliminate after they play because action stimulates their bowels. They need to eliminate after they first wake up and after they eat. If you learn to watch your pup and put him/her directly outside where you want them to eliminate after those actions then you will slowly train your dog to not poop or pee in the house.
