There are three forms of learning
1. Classical conditioning – each time your dog defecates give it a piece of meat. Once your dog has associated the meat with defecation you can take your dog to the unused dog defecation areas or use your piece of paper and present it with a piece of meat. The dog will associate.
2. Operant conditioning – praise your dog when it defecates in the unused dog defecation areas or on a piece of paper and kick it if it defecates elsewhere.
3. Social learning – when you are at the unused dog defecation areas you can defecate. Make sure your dog observes this behavior. On the other hand you can do the same thing with your paper.

Of all three forms of learning the first two might be more circumspect. Hope this helps

Praise (which can include food) when your dog does it in the right place but ignore when in the wrong place. If you kick your dog when he defaecates or pees in the wrong place, a] he/she will learn to do it when you are not looking and b] you could be charged for animal cruelty.
You can increase the chance of your dog doing it in the right place if you make sure he/she goes to the right place as soon as he/she wakes up or has finished eating.
Read as much as you can about dog training on the internet. The HK SPCA runs very good training courses.

Thanks very much for all your information. My dog is knowing how to pee on the newspaper now. Sounds good. We are also thinking to join the SPCA training course but have to line up for a month..... :lol:
