Housebreaking a new puppy can get awfully frustrating at times. In addition to teaching your new pup where to do their business, you’ll certainly need to have products on hand to clean up messes in your home.

Potty training takes time and patience, and it’s inevitable that your puppy will have a few accidents in the house. That’s okay! It’s all part of the learning process. But that doesn’t mean your home needs to be covered in stains and unpleasant smells.

Here are five of puppy parents’ favorite items to help clean up potty messes!
