The side-effects of puppy training
Having a new puppy in the house can be quite entertaining and irritating at the same time. Yes, they're cute and cuddly and playful, but they also chew your shoes, ruin your furniture, and let's not forget pee on your carpet. Kids don't understand how frustrating this can be until they get older and have to start caring for their puppy themselves.

Pick up some tips from the Internet, perhaps from a pet care blog site. Usually the people who are best qualified to say what works are those who've actually trained a puppy, or used a particular brand of odor removal products.
Enlist reinforcements. Don't get burned out because you're the only one caring for your puppy and cleaning up messes. Remember: this is just a phase. If all else fails, get rid of the puppy. This is the ultimate solution, but the price of breaking your children hearts may be too high.
