  Perhaps the best way to train your westie pups not to relieve themselves in your house is to never let the behavior start in the first place. Learning to anticipate your westie puppies need to 'go' takes time, and extra attention to your pups when they are small, but it should make the learning process less stressful for everyone.

First you need to accept the fact that accidents will happen. Westie puppies under three or four months of age have very little bladder control, and do not realize they have to urinate until they are doing it. There are times of the day, though, when you can predict that your westie pups will relieve themselves.

By taking them outside in advance of these times, keeping them there until they are done, and then praising them soundly afterward, you are setting up situations in which your westie pups will succeed.

Your west highland terrier puppies will need to urinate immediately after waking up in the morning, or after a nap. If your westie pups start to go before you can get them outside, make a startling, but not frightening noise to try to stop them. Then take your westie pups to their potty place, and if they finish there, give them praise.

It is much easier to predict when your westie pups are about to go to sleep. This is another time when they need to relieve themselves. Also, pups have an automatic reflex to relieve themselves within one-half to one hour after eating.

Establish a routine for your westie pups of regular eating, play, and potty times throughout the day. There are other signs of when they need to be taken to their potty place - the pups will become restless, sniffing and circling around as they instinctually try to find a place that has been used before.
