There is a difference between house training and crate training. Knowing the difference can help you make the best decision on what to do when it comes to taking the next step and feeling good about it. With either one, your dog is going to learn a new way to use the bathroom and relieve themselves.
House training is when you train your dog to use puppy pads or newspapers inside the home. While this is often used by older individuals or those in apartments that cannot let their dogs in and out often, it is still a good method that is used.
