Housebreaking (US English) or House-training (British English) is the process of training a domesticated animal that lives with its human owners in a house or other residence to excrete (urinate and defecate) outdoors, or in a designated indoor area, rather than inside the house. The pet owner's desire is to break the habit of eliminating in the house, hence the term. House-training (a term more commonly used in British English) or sometimes even potty training are common synonyms for housebreaking.
Housebreaking also refers to taking wild animals (e.g. Dingo) and domesticating them. In this case it is advisable to start at an early age.
