Potty training in the winter vs. the summer
I will be getting my puppy in January and I'm in Chicago. Our winters can get quite cold and snowy. Has anyone found it more difficult to train a puppy in the winter? I'm kind of hoping that since that's all he'll know, that he'll just think that's the way things are outside.

We've only had one litter while the weather was nice. It would be great to choose when the girls go into season.

In the winter, I paper train until the dogs can go outside-- The transition to outside is made much easier for us because the adult dogs teach the little ones what to do. If it is snowy, we shovel a path for the dogs to follow. Some plow through the snow and some tip toe in the path. The colder weather does promote quicker outside times. I am so babied with our fence. I feel every one of my past injuries when it is cold outside. Sandy
