I scattered kibble on the family room carpet at least once a day, every day for a week so the carpet became a place that produced/served food. (Remember to subtract the amount you scatter from the overall volume the puppy gets daily so you aren't overfeeding.) If there was an accident, I cleaned it up and then scattered some kibble in that location to reinforce that it was not a place for pee & poop.
I never thought to do this and am loving this idea!

What an interesting concept = I had never heard of that - although it would most likely only work on a one dog family. My older ones would eat the food so fast that a puppy would not even see it!!!
