If you hear one of those signs, you should directly take him to the bathroom, and you can use either potty pads or walk outside.

It is a good idea if you have outdoor access so your dog can relieve himself outside. If not, build a spot in your home where he will relieve himself. 

A crate will be a good idea too, particularly during the night. And if you use puppy training pads, it will be easier.

Teach Him a Word To Recognize

Teaching your Frenchie a command is significant and ease potty training dog by telling him “POTTY” or “TOILET” or “GO TOILET.”

To adapt it, you need to say this command when your Frenchie begins to pee or defecate on the training pad.

It will take some time for them to learn how to use peeing for this command. But with your patience and persistence, they will learn it.

Don’t encourage to pee during playtime.

Your Frenchie is probably looking forward to playing with you outside.

If you are trying to potty-train him, leave him at least 3–5 times a day in a bathroom break.

Command your dog to go to the potty and reward him after every accomplishment.

Once the command is adjustable, it is all right to play while on a toilet break.

When your puppy is accomplished from the toilet, you can reward him with some treats. 

You can reward your puppy with treats like petting, praise, toy, and/or food. 

This will positively reinforce good behavior and lead to quicker results.
